Welcome to Apologetics! In a world increasingly hostile toward Christianity, believers need to be prepared to take a stand for their faith – knowing not only what we believe, but why – and being “prepared to make a defense (“apologia” in the Greek) to anyone who asks for a reason for the hope” that is in us (1 Peter 3:15).  We don’t need to hold to a “blind” faith or simply hope that we are right; there is solid evidence for faith in Jesus Christ! In this course, students will discover intelligent answers to such questions as: Does God exist? Is the Bible reliable? Was Jesus really God, and did He really rise from the dead?  What about other religions – why are they not all equally valid paths to God?
