One of the challenges facing the apologist today is that demonstrating the rationality of the Christian faith does not always lead people to embrace Christianity. Unless people can see that Christianity is practically relevant to their lived experience, as well as morally attractive, they are unlikely to give a fair hearing to the strong arguments for the truth of Christianity. In this talk, we therefore consider the apologetic importance of not only appealing to people’s intellects with arguments and evidence to show that the Christian faith is true; but also of appealing to people’s imaginations with the beauty and relevance of the Christian faith so that they actually want it to be true.
