Gospel Witness: Defending and Extending the Kingdom of God
Cornerstones Volume 2
How should we think about Christian apologetics in a society where people are encouraged to discover, determine, and live their own truth?
In this short book, Joe Boot explains that Christ-centred gospel witness is about getting to the heart of a person, for the root of unbelief is a heart condition, not a lack of evidence or convincing arguments. Sin has a profound impact on the heart and human understanding.
Dr. Boot considers some of the prevailing worldviews in the West today, demonstrating that their foundational problem is a refusal to acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord and King. As we think about and engage in witnessing to the gospel of the Kingdom, the heart and its attachment to cherished lies must be taken into account.

“A fresh, sharp and thoughtful book on Christianity and society, full of provocative and challenging insights on how we speak and live out the gospel in the 21st-century.”
Revd Canon J. John, Evangelist
Gospel Witness presents the modern reader with a profound analysis of the three systems that oppose belief in the truth of the Bible in our time—Islam, Religious paganism and Secularism…Boot has his finger on the pulse of modern apologetics.
