Just Preach the Simple Gospel?

Is apologetics, philosophy, and worldview training really necessary? After all, shouldn't we just preach the simple gospel and leave all that intellectual stuff to the academics? Nancey Pearcey offers good insight here that I agree with:
"The ultimate goal is to preach the gospel. But the gospel is not simple to those whose background prevents them from understanding it. Today's global secular culture has erected a maze of mental barriers against even considering the biblical message" (Saving Leonardo, 15).
That is why we must help people see that faith is reasonable and that belief in God is not religious wishful thinking (2 Cor. 10:3-5)

I totally agree that we should engage others and disect questions and challenges posed. But let's not forget that this "simple gospel" is the gospel that saves. It has power, not our arguments it is the message that saves. Our confidence needs to rest in God and his unstoppable gospel.
