1st Peter 3:15 tells us to "honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to give a defense." The Greek term used here is "apologia," this is where we get the word "Apologetics." This is a study in Christian theology that defends the faith. A champion in Apologetics is Dr. Alex McFarland.
Alex has spoken at over 1,500 churches throughout the years. A quick search on Youtube will show the many times he has appeared on Fox News and other programs debating Atheists. He has written several books on Apologetics, including his newest book, "21 Toughest Questions Your Kids Will Ask about Christianity: & How to Answer Them Confidently."
Alex attended The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. He received his Master's Degree in Christian Thought/Apologetics at Liberty University and received his Doctorate from Southern Evangelical Seminary, where he has also served as President.
It was a true honor to sit down with Alex and discuss some of the basic ideas of Apologetics. Every Christian, at some point in their walk, will use Apologetics. When you are asked the question "why do you believe in the Bible," how will you answer? This is why Apologetics is so important. In the culture we are living in today it becomes increasingly more important.
