To be honest, I think we have yet to see one that particularly stands out, and that is not at all a put down to current Catholic apologists. It is, however, an observation that there is not an apologist among them that really addresses the issues of our time with intellectual sophistication. They may be whizzes with the issues of a generation ago, but not with the issues of today. Moreover, the efforts of Catholic apologists are not happening in serious venues such as in universities.
That being said, I like that this Catholic movement, if it is a movement at all, is not on the radar of most people.
You really need to watch some of the videos from Father Barron. He addresses what he calls the "youtube heresies" with masterful intellectual sophistication. He is totally rooted in our time and addresses things in that way.
He is also close to releasing his massive undertaking called the "Catholocism Project" which is going to be incredible.
He does critical reviews of new movies, books, articles, etc. that come out and comes at them from an interesting, and catholic, perspective.
In addition, he hosts a TV show on WGN which actually does very well.
Check him out when you have a moment!
