The term ‘Christian apologetics’ doesn’t refer to apologizing (or saying ‘sorry’) for being a Christian. It comes from the Greek word ?πολογ?α (apología) meaning defense. Christian apologetics is the reasoned defense of the Christian faith against objections, but also includes the setting forth of positive grounds for Christianity.  (  Come join us as we dig into the Word to help us "Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have."

Humanity had never witnessed someone who is loving, joyful, peaceful, patient, compassionate, generous, faithful, humble, and self-controlled all the time. It was as if God Himself had become a human being to demonstrate the life that is possible–a life beyond amazing. (Product Description)

Principles include:

  • Knowing that God has prepared the race
