Review: @BakerAcademic: Imaginative Apologetics

IA

Apologetics is changing. Yes, the stereotype of the white man in a suit that simply loves to argue and has a special place in his heart for the teleological argument is still around, but more and more people are realizing that while Christianity can certainly be defended historically, evidentially, and logically, reason only gets us so far. Very few people are argued into the kingdom and individuals (aside from the occasional college professor) are made up of both head and heart, with the heart usually leading the way in the search for God.

Imaginative Apologetics is a relatively new area of study, although anyone who has read George MacDonald, Tolkien, or Lewis can see it beginning to take root. Baker Academic has released a paperback version of a wonderful book that was originally available only in England. Consider it an introduction to a new world in which cold, hard reason sits down in front of a warm fire to listen to the myths of the ancient world—and finds Jesus there.
