Overview

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.
