THE 360 Apologetics for the Church

This is a study of the basic principles of defending and commending the Christian faith in the edification and evangelistic ministries of the local church. The foundational concepts of apologetics are covered, along with their application to modern skepticism and world religions. These concepts are applied to both the discipleship and outreach ministries of the church, focusing specifically on helping believers grasp the uniqueness of the Christian faith more firmly and clearly, and assisting them in giving an answer to those who ask them for the reason for the hope within them. Role-play, oral reports of apologetic encounters, and debate will supplement the course lectures and reading.
