  • 1. What is the 'Apologetics' course?

    Apologetics is a term which indicates giving a defense. In this course, Christian Apologetics, you will learn how to give a defense for the Christian faith.

    The course consists of 3 modules:

    • Module 1: 12 Steps that Demonstrate Christianity to be True
    • Module 2: Apologetics Issues
    • Module 3: Conversational Apologetics

    Module 1 will provide you with a well-rounded apologetic method, taught by Dr. Norman Geisler.

    Module 2 is taught by several instructors including Dr. Gary Habermas, Dr. Richard Howe, Dr. William Dembski, and more! This module will provide you with some in-depth information regarding specific topics, some of which include:

    • Faith and Reason
    • The Resurrection
    • Biblical Interpretation
    • Intelligent Design
    • The New Atheists

    Module 3 is a practical module aimed at helping you employ the material from the first two modules in your evangelism. This module is taught by Dr. David Geisler.
