This article is firstly an attempt to come to a classification of these different schools. Next, the agreements and disagreements between these schools are investigated. It appears that despite the differences there are several common convictions between the several apologetic approaches, namely 'knowing as basis for showing', and 'faith seeks understanding'. These common convictions appear to be fundamental if compared with the differences. The third part of this article explores the arguments for an integration of the different approaches. However, the concept of a strict integration will be problematic, and this leads in the final part to a proposal. The proposal is for a complementary model of concentric circles, starting with the convictions of the heart in the centre in fideism and presuppositionalism, continuing with apologetics which refer to the human mind in classical apologetics and culminating in apologetics that refer to senses in evidentialism. <![CDATA[<b>A practical theological investigation on preaching and the effect of social cognition in the act of contextualisation</b>]]> http://www.scielo.org.za/scielo.php?script=sci_arttext&pid=S2305-08532016000100002&lng=es&nrm=iso&tlng=es It is indicated in recent research that church and society are conscious of each other through their observation of one another - a process also known as social cognition. This article intends to investigate the manner in which the church is observing society. The following research question is stated: Which role can preaching play to foster good neighbourship in society and what is the aspects that influence the cognition of the church as community of believers? This research will be undertaken from a practical-theological vantage point. This field of research shows a tangency with the fields of Ecclesiology and Missiology. From these two fields the importance of the practical-theological field of research will be indicated. This research will further investigate the problematic praxis through an intra-disciplinary discourse with the field of Social Psychology. In this exposition it will be indicated that the founding and functioning of social cognition is a natural process although it also has it complexities. From a normative vantage point investigation on Jeremiah 29 and Matthew 5 will be undertaken in order to state that the right cognition is important for internalising sermons and the conveyance of sermons into daily life. Distortions, in the process of social cognition, can also cultivate a wrong view on what it entails to be salt and light in the world. Practical-theoretical perspectives on the benefit of a good name in society will be provided that will be favourable for the preaching of the Word. <![CDATA[<b>Finding the lost years of Jesus ... or not</b>]]> http://www.scielo.org.za/scielo.php?script=sci_arttext&pid=S2305-08532016000100003&lng=es&nrm=iso&tlng=es It is indicated in recent research that church and society are conscious of each other through their observation of one another - a process also known as social cognition.
