Apologetics: Defending questions and challenges to the Bible, Christ and God
The word "apologetics" refers to the defense of a position. "Christian apologetics" is specifially the defense of a belief in God, the reliability of the Bible, and what the Bible reports. The Bible is what our knowledge of God is based on. It's always been under attack throughout history, but has to this day stood the test of both time and intense scrutiny to lead people to Christ. You won't go very far as a follower of Christ in this world without some heavy challenges to both your faith and the Scriptures you base it on. These web pages are excellent resources that answer many of the challenges and questions in an intelligent, thoughtful manner. Definitely recommended reading, listening and watching material.
