Apologetics means to give an explanation or defense of the Christian faith.  This course will cover questions like how do we know that God exists, how do we know that the Bible is God’s word, how do we know that Jesus is God, and how do we know that evolution is not true.  We will also cover some of the basic Christian doctrines included in the list of apologetics questions posted on the STOA website.  The purposes of the course are to strengthen the faith of young Christians, to prepare them to share their faith with people who have questions, and to prepare them for STOA tournaments.
