Publisher's Summary

The Zondervan Biblical and Theological Lectures series provides a unique audio learning experience. Unlike a traditional audiobook's direct narration of a book's text, Cultural Apologetics: Audio Lectures includes high quality live-recordings of college-level lectures that cover the important points from each subject as well as relevant material from other sources.

The post-Christian world we inhabit presents a mundane and disenchanted view of reality. Under the sway of materialism and science, we have been left with a way of seeing, thinking, and living that has no place for beauty and wonder. We live in a world bereft of magic and mystery.

Many, including many Christians, no longer perceive the world in its proper light. As a result, the Christian imagination is muted. Moreover, the church has grown anti-intellectual and sensate, out of touch with the relevancy of Jesus and how to relate the gospel to all aspects of contemporary life. As a result, the Christian voice is muted. In this age Christian wholeness remains elusive, blunting the church's ability to present a winsome and compelling witness for faith. As a result, the Christian conscience is muted.

Cultural Apologetics: Audio Lectures addresses this malaise by setting forth a fresh model for cultural engagement, rooted in the biblical account of Paul's speech on Mars Hill. Presented by scholar and author Paul Gould, this model details practical steps for reestablishing the Christian conscience, voice, and imagination.

With creative insights, Cultural Apologetics: Audio Lectures prepares believers to share a vision of the Christian faith that is both plausible and desirable, offering clarity for those who have become disoriented in the haze of modern Western culture.

Excellent!

Not sure if this is the exact content of the actual book or just lectures based on the content. Either way, I thoroughly enjoyed it, and will definitely be purchasing an actual copy of the book.

It certainly seems like entry level material designed to give a foundation, direction, and sources to follow. Essentially, it seems like a primer in philosophy to be applied in an apologetic manner.

Great stuff!
