The focus of this class is to serve as an introduction to the field of Christian Apologetics. The course will track Apologetics approaches through the 20 centuries of Christian Thought. This will include Apologetics of the New Testament, Apologetics during the Patristics era, in the Middle ages, during the period of the reformation in the Western Church, and up to the twentieth century. We will also distinguish among the Catholic Church’s approach, the Protestant’s approach, and the Orthodox Church’s approach to Apologetics. The course will also outline the five main categories of apologetics namely: (1) the classical method; (2) the evidential method; (3) the cumulative case method; (4) pre-suppositional apologetics; and (5) reformed epistemology.
