In the past 5 years, there has been a surge of books that deal with the topic of apologetics. Some have been good, but most have not said anything that hasn’t already been mentioned. Louis Marko’s new book, Apologetics for the 21st Century, takes a look at some of the greats within the apologetic world and their contributions, and shows how they are still relevant in the 21st century. Marko looks at C.S. Lewis, G.K. Chesterton, Dorothy Sayers, and Josh McDowell, among many others, and shows how their writings are important to apologetics then and now. Markos does a great job of using past writer’s contributions to deal with some of the recent questions and issues within apologetics in the past decade.
Markos looks at many of the recent debates against Christianity, and does a wonderful job to show why they are invalid. Apologetics for the 21st Century does a wonderful job of balancing the great writings of old with the new issues in the 21st century. Louis Markos leans on the past in order to make the strongest argument today that he can, and he does a terrific job throughout the entire book of doing so. If you are looking for a solid book on apologetics, and want one that uses many of the great contributions from the past absolutely consider this book.
