Imaginative Apologetics draws on much that is most vibrant in contemporary theology to develop Christian apologetics for the present day. The contributors are leaders in their fields. They represent a confident approach to theology, grounded in a deep respect for the theological tradition of the Church. They display a perceptive interest in philosophy, and unlike many works of apologetics their interest is in the philosophy of the present day, not only that of previous centuries. Drawing on the theology of the imagination they show the centrality of the imagination to apologetics; from the significant of virtue in Christian ethics they show that Christian ethics is part of the Good News; from developments in the theology of knowledge they show that apologetics must be communal and must learn to tell stories. Dealing with history, the arts and the nature of atheism, with the natural sciences and social theory, Imaginative Apologetics presents a theological account of apologetics for the twenty-first century.

'This is a stunning book. In simple and vibrant prose, the authors explain our failing attempts to communicate God through colourless, proof style arguments that are all but emptied of mystery and the language of desire. They call, instead, for a healthy tension between clarity and estrangement, logic and wonder. They invite us towards socially and culturally sensitive presentations of the Gospel, rooted in Church tradition and embodied in our own lives. Imaginative Apologetics delivers a prophetic and uplifting message for all Christians.'Alan Ramsey, St Aldates, Oxford 'Rowan Williams memorably said, as he took up office, that the Church needed to recapture the imagination of the nationA". Many theologians have responded to the challenge: we continue to see in the Church of England a confident and intelligent engagement with contemporary culture and a firm critique of the ways in which secular humanism and New Atheism diminish what it means to be a human person. This book is a tremendous collection of essays that explore how the Christian faith is both reasonable and imaginative: it should be read by all who wonder what culture loses when Christianity is eclipsed.'Frances Ward, Dean of St Edmundsbury Cathedral. 'This attractive volume of essays encourages us to invite others into Christ's way of seeing the world and to step into the life of a community where his new way of living and loving can be found. It is an original and inspiring contribution to the apologetic task of the Church.'Christopher Cocksworth, Bishop of Coventry.
