In this book, Alister McGrath lays a foundation for narrative apologetics for considering the many ways in which it can be used. He explores four major biblical narratives, enduring stories such as Tolkein's The Lord of the Ring and Lewis's The Chronicles of Narnia, and personal narratives from figures such as St Augustine and Chuck Colson, McGrath shows how we can both understand and share our faith through the use of stories. The Bible is a narrative--the story of God's creation, humankind's fall, and God's plan of redemption. And it is filled with countless smaller stories that teach us about people, history, and the nature of God. It's no surprise that God would choose to reveal himself to us in story--after all, he hardwired us for story. Despite this, we so often attempt to share our faith with others not through story but through systems, arguments, and talking points--methods that appeal only to our mind and neglect our imagination and our emotions. In this groundbreaking book, scholar and author Alister McGrath lays a foundation for narrative apologetics. Exploring four major biblical narratives, enduring stories from our culture such as Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings and Lewis's The Chronicles of Narnia, and personal narratives from people such as Augustine of Hippo and Chuck Colson, McGrath shows how we can both understand and share our faith in terms of story. In seven chapters and 166pp.
