While I was at church this past weekend, I ran into a friend who is a new member of our Apologetics Team.
Last I had chatted with him, he was working his way through Lee Strobel's latest book, The Case for the Real Jesus.
During our discussion, I asked him if he was still reading the book and he replied, "I kind of got side-tracked. I have a hard time staying on one topic; there is so much to learn."
Later, as I reflected on the conversation, I greatly sympathized with him. As a follower of Christ, it is very easy to get overwhelmed with the amount of information made available in the field of Christian Apologetics. I suspect that this may sometimes be the reason that many Christians shy away from learning to defend their faith. It is not an easy task and does require study and labor. So, why bother? Where can one even get started?
In today's feature article, apologist Charlie Campbell of the Always be Ready Apologetic Ministry, shares:
- that apologetics is a command for every Christian.
- that apologetics can be found in the Bible.
- some practical ways that Christians interested in getting started in apologetics can begin to engage the culture around them.

Courage and Godspeed,
