The Mars Hill Exchange is an ongoing conversation about Christian witness in the 21st century. Taking our cue from Paul’s speech on Mars Hill in Acts 17, we believe that the church is being called to a fresh encounter with culture. While we affirm more traditional understandings of apologetics that focus on intellect and logic, we propose a more holistic approach that addresses both mind and heart. This “cultural apologetic” seeks to present Christianity as both reasonable and desirable. Our hope in these discussions is to empower churches – and particularly pastors – to embrace cultural apologetics as an essential element of witness in a disenchanted world.
