While studying the history of apologetics, you will find a consistency on the function and goals of apologetics. The Scriptures presents multi-dimensional approaches. There are numerous passages which shape our apologetic approaches such as 2 Cor. 10:35, Jude 3-4, Col. 4:2-6, Heb. 5:12-14, 2 Cor. 11:34, 12-15, Titus 1:9, Phil. 1:7-16, just to name a few. We encourage you to read about the history, practice, and art of apologetics. But we pray that you too will engage in the important privilege and task of advancing the truth and contending for the faith to the glory of God.
