Wilkinson argues for a form of Christian apologetics which is not merely confrontation or defense on the intellectual level. He emphasizes a personal and holistic method and one which takes contemporary culture seriously. The truth of the gospel message should not be diluted, but the character and attitude of the apologist is as important as the arguments deployed. Some of the biblical background is explored and then a theological reflection is given on the practice of apologetics within western culture. He writes carefully and with a great deal of hesitation knowing that apologetics is easy to write about, but far more difficult to do!
