Relational Apologetics: Defending the Christian Faith with Holiness, Respect, and Truth (Paperback)Michael Sherrard, QC (author)
- We can order this
Relational Apologetics is about your life becoming a defense of the Christian faith. Every relationship you have is an opportunity for you to connect people to their creator by displaying your hope, both in word and deed. Defending your faith is not just about answering questions and "proving" that God exists. It is about showing that He is real by the way you live. It is about demonstrating the power of God through your holiness. And it is about drawing people to Jesus through your kindness.
Using stories and drawing on personal experiences, Sherrard teaches the importance of holiness, treating skeptics with respect, engaging in authentic conversations instead of shouting matches, and having well thought out answers to the skeptic's questions. The book doesn't delve deeply into the scientific and philosophical arguments for the existence of God and the validity of Christianity. Rather, it provides solid, simple, and easily remembered reasons why one should believe in each. It will also teach essential relational skills that are necessary for talking to skeptics and maintaining healthy relationships with them.

"Evangelism simply is Relational Apologetics. Sherrard's new book clearly explains the Christian approach to sharing your hope in Jesus. It's a must-read for everyone who loves God and people."-- (06/27/2015)
"Relational Apologetics is a much-needed work that I heartily endorse. This book not only tackles the major challenges to faith but also illustrates how apologetics should be done--with humility and respect. Michael Sherrard's unpretentious style and proletarian approach is ideal for those who lack the academic prowess required by many scholarly works in Christian apologetics. His book draws on the conviction, exemplified in the lives of Jesus and the apostles, that apologetics, as pre-evangelism, is most effective when it is done relationally."-- (06/27/2015)
