Today on Kresta - December 1, 2010

Talking about the "things that matter most" on Dec. 1

4:00 – Apologetics for the Twenty-first Century
The vibrant and persuasive arguments of C. S. Lewis brought about a shift in the discipline of apologetics, moving the conversation from the ivory tower to the public square. The resulting strain of popular apologetics—which weaves through Lewis into twentieth-century writers like Francis Schaeffer and modern apologists like William Lane Craig, Josh McDowell, and Lee Strobel—has equipped countless believers to defend their faith against its detractors. Apologetics for the Twenty-first Century uses Lewis’s work as the starting point for an absorbing survey of the key apologists and major arguments that inform apologetics today. Like apologists before him, Louis Markos writes to engage Christians of all denominations as well as seekers and skeptics. His narrative, “man of letters” style and short chapters make his latest book easily accessible for the general reader. He joins us.

  1. Sorry I can't find the appropriate place to post. I ussually enjoy the show but today Kresta blew it when he wouldn't tell the truth to the caller who said he thought the pilot of the hijacked plane who flew into towers might make it to heaven because he respected "his god", and that after all it's basically our God too.....I understand Kresta's explanation that we can't underestimate God's grace and His plan for our salvation....but Kresta missed the opportunity to unambiguously set the caller staight that there is only God, only one path to heaven, through Jesus Christ and that indeed the gate is narrow.....if the caller or listeners believe that the pilot of hijacked plane has a good chance of going to heaven how much better chance does thier unbelieving friends and family? No, no, no. The truth is hard but if we Christ followers don't speak it who will?
