In The End of Apologetics Myron Penner argues that "apologetics" as they have been understood up to the postmodern period are no longer valid. Not only this, but he extends the argument to suggest that they tend toward an unbiblical and unchristian form of Christian witness and do not have the ability to attest truthfully to Christ in our twenty-first century context. He believes Christians need an entirely new way of conceiving the apologetic task.
This provocative text critiques modern apologetic efforts and offers a concept of faithful Christian witness that is characterized by love and grounded in God's revelation. Penner seeks to reorient the discussion of Christian belief, change a well-entrenched vocabulary that no longer works, and contextualize the enterprise of apologetics for a postmodern generation.
