A Word from the Author

"A New Kind of Apologist has been a special project for me. The whole goal is to help people do apologetics in a new and fresh way, which combines both truth and love. And the book also tackles some 'hot' contemporary issues in a unique way. I wrote the introduction and edited the book, but most of the chapters and interviews comes from experts such as J.P. Moreland, Jay Richards, Mary Jo Sharp and others. There's even some short interviews with some well-known and influential atheists. Enjoy!"
Sean McDowell, author of A New Kind of Apologist

Editorial Reviews

"For any Christian who may be struggling to defend their faith in a culture that is becoming increasingly hostile to their beliefs, A New Kind of Apologist provides a great foundational place to begin to understand apologetics....Too often, non-believers can see Christians as uneducated Bible-thumpers who blindly stand on their beliefs. McDowell's latest book is one that can help Christians present well-rationed arguments for their beliefs, bathed in grace. I award this book a rating of 4 out of 5 stars."
