What is Apologetics?

Apologetics may be simply defined as the defense of the Christian faith. The word “apologetics” derives from the Greek word apologia, which was originally used as a speech of defense or an answer given in reply. In ancient Athens it referred to a defense made in the courtroom as part of the normal judicial procedure. After the accusation, the defendant was allowed to refute the charges with a defense or reply (apologia). The word appears 17 times in noun or verb form in the New Testament, and both the noun (apologia) and verb form (apologeomai) can be translated “defense” or “vindication” in every case.

RZIM: Is America Abandoning God?

One of our heroes in the apologetics ministries is doing a lot to address the challenges coming from the (no so) "new atheism."  Ravi Zacharias and Bob Ditmer have a great interview that we need to share with others.  

Please be in prayer as Ravi is either getting ready to have back surgery or is recovering from back surgery.  To learn more about how you can receive resources, subscribe to RZIM podcasts and stay in the know of events, please go to http://www.rzim.org.  -- RL
