Apologetic Engagement of Church and Contemporary Culture

Designation: EVAN 7123, THEO 7123

This course will orient students to the field of Christian apologetics in contemporary context and equip them to engage faith and culture for ministry. We will examine the rationale for apologetics and its place in contemporary society, identify and explore cultural shifts that need to be addressed by the church, explore the nature of worldview and the philosophical viability of faith, and consider some major issues in apologetics today. Special topics include the existence of God, the problem of pain, the authority of the Bible, the supremacy of Christ, creation-evolution and other religions, while considering how Christians express their faith in contemporary context.
