Whether you’ve been following Jesus for 5 minutes, 5 years, or 50 years, it’s important to understand what you believe and why. It is so important for each of us to study Apologetics. We need to provide intelligent answers for the questions we may be asked. In this course, we’ll look at the basics of Apologetics (what is it and why is it important), explore positive evidence for Christianity, and study the person and resurrection of Jesus. The curriculum for this course is derived from Sean and Josh McDowell’s, Evidence for Faith Apologetics Course and Charlie Campbell’s Contending for the Faith online course.
