As followers of Jesus, we are commanded to engage in apologetics, which is the study of how to provide a defense (apologis) to anyone who asks us for a reason for the hope that is in us (1 Pet 3:15). In this course, students will be equipped with various apologetic methodologies and gain exposure to both historical and contemporary challenges to the truth of the Christian faith.
