Sinossi

Have Christians grown accustomed to those who defame the Church? Whether it’s a best-selling author who claims “religion poisons everything” or an atheist comedian whose punch lines aren’t hassled by the burden of proof, foes of the faith continue to declare Christianity morally deficient without much resistance.

In Moral Apologetics for Contemporary Christians, Mark Coppenger mixes compelling references—from classic philosophers to modern entertainers—to reasonably push back against both harsh critics and less intense cultural relativists, contending that Christianity is morally superior to its competitors as well as true.

Coppenger doesn’t avoid uncomfortable realities like the misbehavior of many Christians and false teachers, but he sets the book’s course in defense of his faith with evidence that a Christian approach to life makes people and societies flourish, while those who turn their backs on genuine Christianity are more liable to behave wickedly.

“I hope to help replenish our cultural confidence,” he writes. “We have a great moral story to tell, and it surely points to the Author of Light and Life.”

Acclaim for Moral Apologetics for Contemporary Christians:

"I wish every Christian could have the opportunity of sitting in Mark Coppenger's classroom—a place of constant intellectual exchange, all aimed at developing a consistently biblical worldview. Well, reading this book is as close as many Christians may ever get to sitting in that classroom, but it is an experience not to be missed. This book is a tour de force of apologetic thought, revealing ethical issues to be apologetic opportunities. Fascinating on every page . . . get ready for a guided tour through contemporary culture and Christian apologetics."

R. Albert Mohler, Jr., president, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"Mark Coppenger is not only the author of a strategy for doing moral  apologetics, he is a skilled practioner. As a seminary professor, church planter, soldier, and world traveler who has never met a 

stranger, Mark's method has been tested in the laboratory of personal experience from New York City to Jakarta and from Toronto to Rio de Janero."

C. Ben Mitchell, Graves professor of Moral Philosophy, Union University

"Pascal noted that 'the heart has reasons that reason cannot know.' Mark Coppenger in his extraordinary book realizes the mind has positions the brain cannot fathom. Here in poignant argumentation is the case for faith and the natural state of morality. His explanations are breathtakingly persuasive regardless of your religious conviction."

Herbert I. London, president emeritus, Hudson Institute

"Mark Coppenger has rendered a great service to the Christian church in the 21st Century. Moral Apologetics is a special gift to all of those faithful Christians who believe that Christianity brings new life to the mind as well as to the soul. Moral Apologetics should be added to every thinking Christian's bookshelf."

Richard Land, president, Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention

2.0 su 5 stelle Think twice before buying this one 2 giugno 2016
Di bradley finkbeiner - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Don't be duped by the enticing title. A dissapointing book. I am a "conservative" Christian teacher of logic, ethics, and apologetics, and so was looking forward to reading this. Found it to be poor in organization and flow and thougtfulness and argumentation. It's loaded with ad hominem eye-poking, shallow anecdotdal evidence, and page after page of over-simplifications. It also exudes a somewhat sour spirit. Did I mention that it's disorganized? Logical ADHD. (I kept hearing "Squirrel!") I truly tried to press on (to get my money's worth) but finally lost the will.

2.0 su 5 stelle Wanted it to be great, was disappointed 28 novembre 2012
Di Douglas Hess - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I really wanted this to be great, but thought it was very weak from either an apologetic or philosophical standpoint. The author basically holds up notable non-Christians and points out their flaws. While I don't think there are any actual errors in what he writes, I don't think it's particularly effective. It might reinforce existing faith, but I really doubt it would be a useful evangelism tool. I'd clearly lump this into the category of negative apologetics.

5.0 su 5 stelle Morality is the key! 5 dicembre 2011
Di Jacob Sweeney - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
The rise of the New Atheists has proven a unique challenge to those who defend the faith. In a culture where Christianity was assumed Bertrand Russell argued that you cannot argue for or against the truth of a system based on its perceived social benefit. The New Atheists have swung in the opposite direction and argue against the truthfulness of Christianity based upon its perceived negative impact. In the introduction to his new book Moral Apologetics Mark Coppenger (Professor of Christian Apologetics at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary as well as the director of the Nashville extension campus) quotes from a debate between Christian Apologist William Lane Craig and Christopher Hitchens - well-known New Atheist. Hitchens wants to make this argument and Craig dismisses it as irrelevant.

Coppenger cites this debate because he wants to argue that ideas have consequences. If an idea is true, then it should lead to human flourishing. If it is not true, then it should be detrimental. If an idea is true and it doesn't bring about human flourishing, then something has gone wrong. Coppenger wants to push back against the New Atheists who argue that Christianity is bad for the world. He also wants to argue against the idea that the social impact of a worldview is irrelevant when discussing truthfulness. Instead he argues that "Christianity is morally superior as well as true" (1).

He examines the issue in relation to four contrasts: Christian Ethics v. Secular Ethics (chs. 1-5); Christian Ethicists v. Secular Ethicists (chs. 6-9); Christian Fruit v. Secular Fruit; Admirable Apologetics (chs. 10-13) v. Irresponsible Apologetics (chs. 14-18). In each section he examines competing ideas, systems, religions and movements. In order to establish his thesis that Christianity is both morally superior and - therefore - true, he needs to demonstrate that these competing systems are morally inferior. This is a difficult task. Western culture is both amorphous and fundamentalist. It is strident in its support of relativism - an ironic state of being.

This book is not meant to be an exhaustive treatment. Coppenger does not envision Moral Apologetics to be the literary "A-bomb" which demolishes contrary arguments for all time. Instead, he envisions this book to be a conversation starter. He hopes that it will prompt the skeptic to take an honest look at the Christian faith and to have an honest conversation about the moral conclusions of competing ideas.

I am not a full-fledged apologists. But, it does seem to me that the most significant issue for non-Christian to face is morality. That's why I believe C.S. Lewis' Mere Christianity is as popular now as it has ever been. Morality is inescapable. Despite the prevailing opinions of the day, morality makes some obsolete. An accomplished philosopher can undo the foundations of postmodernity. But, all it takes is an unprovoked punch to the face to demonstrate the omnipresent problem of morality. Coppenger has written an helpful piece that should aid many in future conversations with seekers and skeptics.

NOTE: In accordance with the regulations of the Federal Trade Commission I would like to state that I received a complementary copy of the aforementioned text for the purposes of review. I was not required to furnish a positive review.

One reviewer said "[t]he author basically holds up notable non-Christians and points out their flaws. While I don't think there are any actual errors in what he writes, I don't think it's particularly effective. It might reinforce existing faith, but I really doubt it would be a useful evangelism tool. I'd clearly lump this into the category of negative apologetics."

I disagree with this comment. If a person really took the idea of human flourishing seriously then I think this book could be a useful evangelism tool. Also, the book did more than point out the flaws of non-Christians. I think the book did a good job of illustrating the consequences of ideas.
