Definitions of "Christian Apologetics"

Apologetics - from the Greek "apologia," a legal term meaning "defense" - is the branch of Christian theology concerned with the intelligent presentation and defense of the historical Christian faith.

This defense is aimed at challenges from both outside and inside the Church.   We are human and prone to err.  Apolgetics can help us rightly divide the Word of God and stay on course -- even in the midst of a stormy, angry and troubled sea.

Christianity is under attack today, and it must be defended.

There are attacks from within--from
cults, sects, and heresies. And there are attacks from without--atheists, skeptics, and other religions. The discipline that deals with a rational defense of the Christian Faith is called apologetics. It comes from the Greek word apologia (cf. 1 Peter 3:15) which means to give a reason or defense.
