Our world is multicultural, multi-religious, multi-philosophical. It ranges from fundamental monotheism to do-it-yourself spirituality to strident atheism. Ho can Christians authentically and effectively present the message of Jesus the Messiah in such a pluralistic and often relativistic context? When the apostle Paul visited Athens, he found an equally multicultural and multi-religious setting. From Jews to Gentiles, elite to poor, slaves to slave-owners, from Greeks to Ethiopians - the Greco-Roman world was a dynamic mixture. Religious practices were also wide and varied, with the Roman cult of emperor worship being the most prominent. Many also frequented the temples of the traditional Greek pantheon and participated in the secret rituals of the Mystery Religions. In this stimulating and accessible study, philosopher Paul Copan and New Testament scholar Kenneth Litwak show how Paul's speech to the Athenians (in Acts 17) provides a practical model for today. The authors encourage Christians to 'be moe biblically informed, culturally astute, and creatively engaged to winsomely challenge the idols of our time and to point contemporary Athenians beyond 'an unknown God' to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.'
