E-book and Podcasts: How to Get Apologetics in your Church

We have been asked by Apologetics315 to contribute an essay to a series that will eventually be turned into an e-book and be made available in podcast form.

Brian of Apologetics315 explains:

"During the month of September 2010, Apologetics 315 will feature a series of blog posts that respond to the question: "How can I get apologetics in my church?"

The goal of this project is a simple one: to share stories, experiences, and advice that will help Christians to start their own local apologetics initiatives. Whether you be a pastor, youth pastor, teacher, elder, or lay person, this series of short essays could hold the keys you need to get things started in your own local congregation."

Great job with your section of the podcast! You made great points as to why apologetics is necessary in the church and you've given some ideas as to how to present literature to a couple friends that I'd like to help seek Truth.

Thanks Brother,
