Bringing Apologetics to the Arts

Christians should intentionally and intelligently do more to engage current culture through the arts, says Anthony Horvath, the executive director of Athanatos Christian Ministries, an apologetics ministry.

"If you want to understand the power of culture, look at how gay 'marriage' went from being unfathomable to unstoppable in less than ten years. That doesn't happen by accident," Horvath recently said. "It certainly didn't happen through legislative efforts, which up until recently were all lined up against it. How then did it happen? Answer: intentional manipulation of the culture."

He makes the argument that during this same period of time, the Church has become more aware of the need for Christian apologetics, and Christian apologists in turn have become more aware of the need for cultural engagement through the arts and literature.
