“Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have” (1 Peter 3:15 NIV). Even in today’s anti-Christian culture, Peter’s words still ring true. Apologetics have long played an important role in explaining and defending Christian truth. Each new generation of believers is told to give an explanation for the hope they have in Christ. Through the ages, Christ’s followers have prepared themselves for such a task. The study of apologetics shows how to grapple with the relationship between faith and facts and will build your confidence in sharing your faith with others.
