Fascinating look at how to share faith in a postmodern world

Apologetics for a New Generation edited by Sean McDowell is a collection of essays about how the study and use of apologetics has changed and needs to change to be relevant in the 21st century. Apologetics is the study and defense of Christianity and is often used to try and convince nonbelievers, but because we now live in a postmodern society, the old arguments don't work. There are a lot of great essays in this book to help not only in addressing nonbelievers, but in talking to teens, even those who do have faith. Not every essay succeeds as well as others. Some get caught up in jargon and high-minded language. Others are fascinating reading, and I finally now understand the difference between modern and postmodern thinking! This is a terrific book for youth leaders and church leaders as well as lay people interested in wanting to know how to have successful and interesting conversations about God. The overriding theme of the book is that relationships are necessary before opinions can be shared. It's a good message for everyone.
