A Good and True Story Eleven Clues to Understanding Our Universe and Your Place in It
Young adults today want authentic answers to their soul-deep questions about God. They want meaningful ways to communicate those answers to others. Most of all, they want to know that they are living a life that matters.
In A Good and True Story, philosopher, apologist, and international speaker Paul Gould leads readers on an engaging journey through eleven clues that suggest Christianity is not only true but satisfies our deepest longings. This creative foray into the foundations of Christian truth explores the universe, morality, happiness, pain, beauty, and more for readers looking for culturally informed apologetics.
Ideal for college-age and twentysomething readers, small group leaders, and anyone interested in the intersection of faith, philosophy, and culture, A Good and True Story reminds readers that their search for identity and purpose is a gift from a loving and purposeful God.
“In his wonderfully engaging style, Gould takes the reader on a grand expedition in search of the cosmic narrative that best explains the human experience of the world. As a well-seasoned trail guide, he leads the reader past majestic vistas and through rocky terrain, pointing out the signposts that are crucial to the journey. With remarkable clarity, he maps out a narrative that, unlike nontheistic alternatives, is intellectually and spiritually satisfying–a glorious, humane story that gives each of us an objectively meaningful identity, legitimizes our yearning for the transcendent, and offers ultimate hope.” Melissa Cain Travis, distinguished fellow of great books and philosophy, Southeastern University; author of Science and the Mind of the Maker
Cultural Apologetics: Renewing the Christian Voice, Conscience, and Imagination in a Disenchanted World
The post-Christian world we inhabit today presents us with a mundane and disenchanted view of reality. Under the sway of materialism and science, we have been left with a way of seeing, thinking, and living that has no place for beauty and wonder. We now live in a world bereft of magic and mystery.
Many–including many Christians–no longer perceive the world in its proper light. As a result, the Christian imagination is muted. Moreover, the church has grown anti-intellectual and sensate, out of touch with the relevancy of Jesus and how to relate the gospel to all aspects of contemporary life. As a result, the Christian voice is muted. In this age Christian wholeness remains elusive, blunting the church’s ability to present a winsome and compelling witness for faith. As a result, the Christian conscience is muted.
Cultural Apologetics addresses this malaise by setting forth a fresh model for cultural engagement, rooted in the biblical account of Paul’s speech on Mars Hill, which details practical steps for reestablishing the Christian voice, conscience, and imagination. Readers will be equipped to see, and help others see, the world as it is–deeply beautiful, mysterious, and sacred.
With creative insights, Cultural Apologetics prepares readers to share a vision of the Christian faith that is both plausible and desirable, offering clarity for those who have become disoriented in the haze of modern Western culture.
