COURSE DESCRIPTION: If you have ever been challenged to explain the basis for your faith in Jesus Christ, you will understand the importance of the study you are about to begin. From the earliest days of the Church Age, the followers of Christ have faced accusers who questioned their beliefs and tried to put doubts in their hearts. The apostle Peter addressed this problem and exhorted believers in the early church with these words:

"In your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander." (1 Peter 3:15–16).

One dictionary defines apologetics as “a branch of theology devoted to the defense of the divine origin and authority of Christianity.” In this sense, much of what the apostle Paul wrote in his Epistles can be described as apologetics. Simply stated, apologetics is the defense of the Christian faith.
