    Book details

How can we preach when traditional approaches no longer work? While dealing with apologetic issues about relativism and faith was once reserved for non-Christians, today even regular churchgoers have questions that need to be addressed. But not only do they have questions, they often seem to have a totally different mindset of skepticism and doubt that resists authoritative presentations of the truth of Scripture. How can we preach about godly behavior when people appear oblivious to moral moorings? How can we talk about sin, evil, judgment and commitment in an era of political correctness? How can we draw people to true supernatural reality when a wide array of competing spiritual experiences beckons them in books, movies and alternative religions? These are the challenges that Craig Loscalzo meets in this down-to-earth book. While giving straightforward explanations of the changes taking place all around us, he shows and tells concretely how to communicate clearly and compellingly. Brief sample sermons at the end of each chapter flesh out the principles he presents. In this book you'll discover what it means to
  • proclaim mystery in an age of information
  • proclaim hope in an era of skepticism
  • proclaim confidence in a time of doubt
  • proclaim truth in a climate of relativism
  • proclaim Jesus Christ in a postmodern world
Here is a book for everyone who wants to proclaim the certainty of God's Word in an era of change.

"As the church awakens to a new era, the preacher must approach the pulpit with a new tactic, one not limited to the traditional, linear, reason-based explanation of the gospel. Apolgetic Preaching . . . is both a tour guide's orientation to postmodernism and a manual for reclaiming the apologetic role of the pulpit. . . . [It] has much to offer preachers who 'take seriously the intersection between idioms of the age and the theological verities of Christian faith.'"--Leadership (Fall 2000)

Review Text

  • By R. MCKERNAN on 17 May 2017

    The book encouraged me primarily because I could relate to many of the observations made by the author, which he writes with sublime clarity in some sections. I found his descriptions, suggestions and example sermons helpful. However, the book is not the simplest to understand in certain places. The average reader may find themselves lost in what at times becomes long drawn out anecdotes within philosophical pontifications. The job could have been done in much less words, and I would have preferred less anecdotal input and more on the “how to” in terms of possible sermon content and structure. That said, I found that the book lifted my confidence in preaching the pure and unadulterated message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Loscalzo certainly brings that through as the book progresses. It provided some useful insights in how to do so in an age where many are growing tired of postmodern thinking.
