Apologetics for a New Generation

A Biblical and Culturally Relevant Approach to Talking About God

Many teenagers leave home for college but don’t take their faith with them. Popular writer and speaker Sean McDowell offers a solution for this problem: a new way of approaching faith that addresses the questions the emerging generation is asking and that incorporates a radically humble and relational approach.

An impressive list of contributors including Dan Kimball (They Like Jesus but Not the Church), Brian Godawa (Hollywood Worldviews), and Josh McDowell show that today’s apologetics must employ…

  • a clear connection with everyday life
  • an invitation for people to express their doubts and wrestle with tough questions
  • a culturally savvy understanding of the way secular people view Christians
  • an engaging methodology that captures the imagination before engaging the mind
  • a strong emphasis on the resurrection and how it changes everything

This resource is imperative for leaders who are ready to engage a new generation with the claims of Christ.

Editorial Reviews

“McDowell, who himself regularly speaks to and engages today’s youth culture, offers a dynamic case for studying God’s Word so Christians know what they believe and are equipped to share such truth with both gentleness and respect…Given the pace at which our society is changing, all Christ followers need to have a working definition of what they believe and why, and this text will help them get there.”

“McDowell’s Apologetics for a New Generation is groundbreaking and refreshing!”
—Youthworker Journal

“I would recommend this book, especially for those who are involved with today’s young people and have the desire to help them become confident in their personal faith.”
Libraries Alive

“This is a terrific book for church leaders and lay people alike who are interested in wanting to know how to have successful and interesting conversations about God.”

“Pastors, especially those who work with high school students or young adults, will profit from reading this book. But any Christian will profit from this book’s emphasis on presenting and defending the gospel in a winsome, intelligent, and creative manner.”

“The compilation of noted speakers and authors in Apologetics for a New Generation on pertinent topics that face this and our next generation is absolutely outstanding. It is a must read for every parent, youth worker and teacher out there.

“No person who is serious about affecting the lives of young people for Christ should be without the insight and wisdom contained in this book. I'd love to see it as required reading in every youth group/small study group across the nation. Our Christian young people need not only to believe in Christ, but be able to defend their faith in Christ and this resource is a definite beginning for this use. Thanks Sean for a job well done.”
—Dr.Timothy L. Heaton, Professor of Education, Cedarville University

“Apologetics meets postmodernism. Sean gives me a renewed sense that apologetics really does matter. I will recommend this book to every youth pastor I know.”
—Ryan Snuffer, DMin, director, The Christian Resource Center
