Course Overview

In Apologetics, Alex McFarland, Elmer Towns, Lee Strobel, Norman Geisler, and others present the case for the importance of apologetics and its application to the modern day Christian walk. Due to the increase of technology and globalization, awareness of cultures and their respective belief systems has also increased; along with that change has come an opportunity for us to share the good news of Jesus Christ to those
cultures. The problem is that due to globalization and such cultural awareness, many have had their faith challenged and are unaware of how to respond. In this course, students will better understand the proof for the Christian faith and can oppose belief systems that stand in opposition to that faith. Some of the questions answered in this course include:

  • Does Truth Exist?
  • Are Miracles Possible?
  • Did the Resurrection Really Happen?
  • How Does Christianity Compare to other Religions?
  • Why Does God Allow Suffering and Evil?

Along with answering these critical questions, presenters in this course provide the student with resources for living out their Christian faith and having meaningful dialogue with others about it. In addition to the video content of the sessions, the student will benefit greatly by utilizing the course workbook and course texts to aid in their discovery.
