1 Peter 3:15: "...and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you..."
Christian Apologetics = apologia (Greek): To offer a reason, defense of the Christian faith.
- It helps a believer better understand and share his faith with others.
- It removes intellectual barriers and helps non-believers know why to choose Christianity over religions and Atheism.

Christianity is not based on what Jesus taught but on who Jesus is. If Jesus is truly dead, then Christianity collapses.
Christianity is based on the person of Christ. It can be reasonable even with the Bible closed.
The problem of unbelief is not an intellectual matter but moral choice.
