Urban Apologetics: Cults and Cultural Ideologies
We know that Urban isn't just a place but a culture now. Followers of Jesus face many challenges to their faith, among them the rising influence of contemporary cults, alternative theologies, and ethical issues that challenge traditionally held beliefs and practices. Urban Apologetics: Cults and Cultural Ideologies, is a follow-up to the bestselling Urban Apologetics, and it provides a guide to addressing these challenges with grace and wisdom. In addition, throughout the book are short essays by leaders in the church sharing their convictions on successful ministry and reflection on today’s challenges in light of the past.
This all-new volume addresses several of today's most-talked-about issues, including:
- Jehovah Witnesses
- The Prosperity Gospel
- Black Liberation theology
- LGBTQ+ Issues
- Critical Race Theory (CRT)
- White Nationalism
- Faith Deconstruction
Edited by Dr. Eric Mason and featuring a top-notch lineup of contributors such as Anthony Bradley, Brandon Washington, and Thabiti Anyabwile, Urban Apologetics: Cults and Cultural Ideologies equips pastors, churches, and everyday believers to engage the most common ethical, biblical, and theological challenges faced by Christians and the church today.
