This course introduces Christian apologetics, that is, the giving of well-reasoned and faithful responses to challenges and criticisms raised against the Christian faith (1 Peter 3:15). Common objections to the claims of historical Christianity, such as the problem of evil and the reliability of Scripture, are considered. Various approaches to apologetics are explored. The course helps to equip learners to more effectively serve as ambassadors of Jesus Christ within a radically skeptical, post-modern cultural context.
