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.

What are the practical implications of an atheistic worldview?

As I seek to get back into the game and hopefully get a "longer leash," I am thinking about starting up a "Thinkings Group" here in the Fredericksburg area. This idea came about from thinking on what to do to reach out to Christian parents, and students in helping them understand and respond to some important questions that every believer needs to learn to answer.

Natasha Crain provides these questions for us in her Christian Mom Thoughts Blog, in her posting from a couple plus years ago, 65 Apologetics Questions Every Christian Parent Needs to Learn to Answer.
