Welcome

Welcome to NewApologetics.com, a New Apologetics for a New Evangelization.

Our mission in developing the content of a New Apologetics is to reach out, as Cardinal Francis George has written, “with the faith that comes to us from the apostles, without compromises that would contravene the dignity and vocation of beings made in the image of a self-giving God.”

It is our hope that what is to be presented here will become the ignition point of a renewal in theology and philosophy of religion.

All contributors to NewApologetics.com are loyal to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church, but our methodology in dialoging with those who do not share the faith is strictly limited to using well-accepted principles of reason without appeal to authority.

The content of NewApologetics.com will always be open to respectful and rational critique from all sources.

Our work is under the patronage of Saint Therese of Lisieux who tasted the “bread of sorrow” in solidarity with unbelievers, and who, from that place of communion with her atheist brothers and sisters, prayed for divine light.

This category addresses topics pertaining to the work of the New Apologetics broadly. Some important considerations for distinguishing between the New Apologetics and the “old apologetics” in terms of both method and content will be proposed.

New Evangelization Series, Part II: Compassion or Something Better?

We Christians have a problem. We know that God is love, and that all of the teachings of the Church are to be understood as propositional manifestations of that love. We know that we are called to love one another as Christ loves us. And yet, we often find ourselves on the outside of social interactions where someone is talking about something that they are happy about. You may have heard the maxim,... Read More

The New Evangelization Series, Part I: The Atheists are Right

An Open Letter to Atheists

As Catholic apologists, we want to do something that our name would suggest we do far more often: We’d like to apologize. By that we mean exactly what you would think; we want to say that we’re sorry.

A Line in the Sand

Since the time of the Apostles, the Church has been engaged in the business of explaining Christian doctrine and defending it against error from both outside forces and inside forces (heresies). 1 Peter 3:15 tells us to “always be ready to give an explanation for the hope that is within you.” Recently, Cardinal Levada stated that the Church needs a New Apologetics for the New Evangelization.

The Redemption Series, Part I: Finding Our Way Out

In “The Theodicy of Divine Chastity, Part I,” we explored some aspects of the problem of evil in light of God’s perfect opposition to evil.

The Theodicy of Divine Chastity, Part I

 The occurrence of tragedy is especially problematic for the worldview of the Christian who believes in a good God.

Historically, most (if not all) explanations of the presence of suffering... Read More
