The culture around us so dominates the discussion of truth today that our Christian witness appears to have no credibility left. However, neither monastic isolation nor aggressive culture warring are adequate solutions. Instead, churches must equip believers to read and understand the Bible correctly while training those same people to answer the intellectual, philosophical, and moral challenges they confront in the world. The field of evidential apologetics is a species of Christian evangelism uniquely useful for the Church today. This basic course on evidential apologetics introduces participants to a useful and encouraging approach to defending the Christian faith and giving a reason for your hope in Jesus Christ.
The introductory lesson in Reason for Hope offers an overview of the principles and goals of evidential apologetics. Participants will discover the relationship between faith and reason.
