Here is great encouragement and food for thought for apologists everywhere. This is taken from Francis Schaeffer’s “Death in the City.” Schaeffer was an 20th century apologist and confronted post-modernism.

“Sadly enough, there is a kind of an anti-intellectualism among many Christians; spirituality is falsely pitted against intellectual comprehension as though they stood in a dichotomy. Such anti-intellectualism cuts away at the very heart of the Christian message. Of course, there is a false intellectualism which does destroy the work of the Holy Spirit. But it does not arise when men wrestle honestly with honest questions and then see that the Bible has the answers. This does not oppose true spirituality. So Paul writes, “I’m not ashamed. I’m not ashamed of the gospel because it will answer the questions of men; it is the *dunamis* of God unto salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
