Apologetics is often understood as a list of facts and arguments that Christians need to memorize if they don’t want to get intellectually slaughtered by the nearest angry atheist who says, “Jesus didn’t exist” or, “Why would a good God allow evil?” Ironically enough, many (if not most) books on apologetics...
  • Making the Most of Every Opportunity

    This past weekend, I was out spending time with a friend for her birthday, when a group of ten guys who were part of a bachelor party came and surrounded us. They were actually really nice, respectful guys, and since the night was still young, they were still mostly...

    If God, Then…

    The other day, I was listening to Larry Mantle’s show AirTalk on my local public radio station. His guests for one of the segments that day were Michael Shermer, founder of Skeptic Magazine, and William Lane Craig, philosophy professor at Biola University’s Talbot School of Theology. Their discussion was...
  • Qur’anic Corruption

    If you have ever had the privilege of sharing the Gospel with a Muslim, you have probably heard many of their standard objections to Christianity. One of the most common that they turn to rather quickly is that the Bible has been corrupted. The objection has the effect of...

    Innate Morality & Godlessness

    Is there any good reason—biblical, philosophical, scientific or otherwise—to believe in innate morality? This post is partly a sequel to my earlier response to Ray Comfort’s video, Evolution vs. God. If you haven’t seen the video or read my comments about the video, check it out here. I don’t intend...

    Ray Comfort vs. Evolution

    Fellow Christians, our enemy is not evolution, it is naturalism. Please, please, please recognize the difference. Ray Comfort, well-known evangelist and co-founder of The Way of the Master along with Kirk Cameron, has produced a new apologetics video entitled, “Evolution vs. God.” Here it is below. It is only...
  • Sean McDowell Interview

    My name is Brad Blakeley—I’m a graduate of Biola’s Master of Apologetics program, a teaching pastor at the Church at Lake Mead (C@LM), a high school teacher at Lake Mead Christian Academy, and an adjunct professor at Lincoln Christian University Las Vegas Extension campus—and I recently had the privilege...
  • Seeing the Resurrection of Jesus through the Life of James, His Brother (Guest Post)

    It’s 62 A.D. and James “the Just” (the brother of Jesus), stands atop the parapet of the Temple. Festus, the Roman provincial governor, has just died and his replacement, Albinus, has yet to arrive in Jerusalem to restore order. The Jewish Sanhedrin seize this opportune time to strike against...
  • Apologetics: To What End?

    Last week I talked about advertising and evangelism.  As a related issue, I also want to discuss the way in which Christians do Apologetics.  How far can Apologetics take us?  Do we assume that someone can be argued into the Kingdom?  Is the goal of Apologetics merely to convince?...
