Brett Kunkle on Teaching Apologetics to Our Youth

"Apologetics helped rebuild my faith in Christ, and I became convinced of its absolute necessity for student discipleship.  That's right, I said necessity.  Apologetics is not optional in a post-Christian culture.  It's not just for the nerdy youth group kid 'who's into that kind of stuff.' God is a rational God, and we are made in his image.  Therefore, every student is rational by design, instinctively gathering reasons and evidence as they seek to make sense of the world around them and form a coherent set of beliefs about reality.  As the church equips a new generation for the cause of Christ, we must begin with the conviction apologetics is an indispensable tool."1

Courage and Godspeed,
Chad
