The Bible instructs us to always be prepared to make a defense to everyone who asks us for a reason for the hope that is in us (1 Pet 3:15). It also calls us to be renewed in the spirit of our mind (Eph 4:23), encouraging us to engage our intellect in service to God. This course will examine topics including truth, reality, faith and reason, the Bible, the existence of God, the existence of the world, morality, the problem of evil, suffering, the deity of Christ, the resurrection, worldview, theism, atheism, pluralism, and postmodern spirituality. The course will equip the believer to defend Christian truth claims with reasons and evidence and to engage those around them with the truth of Christ.
