How Does God Really Want Us to Prove Christianity?
Christian apologetics is the endeavor to prove “Salvation is found in no one else [but Jesus Christ], for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). By far the most popular approach is an intellectual one that marshals scientific, historical, and philosophical arguments to defend the Christian faith. However, this book makes the following claims:
- Intellectual apologetics has no biblical support, including the oft quoted 1 Peter 3:15.
- The Apostle Paul actually denounced the use of intellectual apologetics for evangelism.
- Virtue apologetics, which proves the exclusivity of Christianity by the superior love and holiness of Spirit-filled believers, is repeatedly commanded in Scripture and demonstrated in real life.
- While there are a multitude of books on intellectual apologetics, this author could not find a biblical study that explains, defends, and encouraged virtue apologetics. So he wrote one.
