Logic's End Gets an New Cover!
Keith A. Robinson's bestselling novel, Logic's End, just got a new look!
Logic's End was Mr. Robinson's debut novel. Originally published in 2007 by Anamalos Publishing, it set the groundwork for what has now become the Apologetics Fiction genre. It was updated in 2017 and given a new cover.
Now that Mr. Robinson has connected with the amazingly talented cover artist, Amalia Chitulescu, he made the decision to have her create a new cover for his bestseller. We hope you enjoy the new cover as much as we do!

Jesus always used stories and illustrations like these when speaking to the crowds. In fact, he never spoke to them without using such parables.
1 Peter 3:15
But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.

WHAT IS APOLOGETICS FICTION?
Apologetics comes from the Greek word apologia, meaning: an apology, as in defense or justification of a belief, idea, etc.
The Random House Dictionary defines apologetics as: the branch of theology concerned with the defense or proof of Christianity.
Many Christians throughout the centuries, from Thomas Aquinas and Justin Martyr, to C.S. Lewis, Josh McDowell and Lee Strobel, have written numerous works demonstrating time and again how orthodox Christianity makes sense of the world and is based upon historical, scientific, and logical grounds.
While these works are powerful and convincing, there are many people who, for one reason or another, are not interested in reading non-fiction books.
Therefore, we at Apologetics Fiction.com feel called to take the amazing truths and arguments that support the Christian faith and repackage them in action/adventure fictional novels.
Although we know that our stories are limited in their ability to present complete and exhaustive arguments, it is our goal to whet the appetite of the reader. For example, a young person who is initially disinterested in reading a non-fiction book on the archeological proofs supporting the Bible may change his/her mind after reading a fictional story that brings the topic to life.
Furthermore, well-designed stories have a way of grabbing our imaginations and helping us to remember what we learned. A good analogy can go far in teaching a specific idea, and a good story can forever ingrain a truth in our minds and spirits.
The ultimate teacher himself, Jesus, used stories and parables to present the truths of the gospel. We hope to merely emulate his example for His glory and the furtherance of His kingdom.
This site is designed to highlight the work of several authors who are dedicated to writing this type of fictional novel.
