  • Becoming All Things to All People with Apologetics

    “Apologetics is something that is integrated into my faith, so in a sense I am always doing it. It is the way that I love God with all of my mind. So I would never want to stop.”

    These are exciting words from Jessica Thompson about using our minds along with our heartfelt faith. Jessica is the outgoing student president of Ratio Christi at Rutgers University. Upon graduating this past spring, she was acknowle...   More

  • Dr. Carol M. Swain on Satanism, Wicca, and Black Lives Matter - Video

    Professor Carol M. Swain of Vanderbilt University was the Keynote Speaker at our October, 2016 RC Symposium and Student Retreat.

After her keynote speech, she was interviewed by Assistant Editor Tyler O'Neil of PJ Media. O'Neil had   More

    Matthew Adamson is the current president of the Ratio Christi chapter at the University of Alabama Huntsville (UAH). This aerospace engineering major says he likely would have abandoned Christianity if he had not discovered apologetics through our chapter there.

    “Apologetics and RC saved me from leaving the faith after high school,” he says. “I had experienced a couple years of extreme doubt and had...   More

  • Professor Carol M. Swain, Conservative on the Front Lines of Secular Academia

    Carol M. Swain, Ph.D., is a professor of political science and law at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. She also happens to be a Conservative Christian African American with traditional family views. As far as secular universities go, this makes her a rare bird. In an academic setting where "tolerance" has ironically become "intolerant" toward Judeo-Christian worldviews and African Americans who are conservative, she's got two strikes against her. And she cour...   More

  • "Apologetics Made Me a Confident Christian"

    Recently, we published a post about how our relatively new apologetics program for high school students is exploding in numbers and in requests for more chapters. RC College Prep prepares high schoolers early for the tough questions they may face about Christianity when they get to college.

    (Reprinted with permission from the blog "An Abundant Singleness" by Allison Zeigler)

    (Reprinted with permission from the blog of RC College Prep Director Michael C. Sherrard)

    Everyone is peddling fear. Spread it then leveraged it to promote personal agendas. This is how “leaders” grab power these days. Well, while everyone else is fear mongering, here is a bit of hope.   More

  • RC College Prep Update: "Our High School Movement Grows Weekly!"

    It all began when we heard our RC college students say things like:

    "I never learned this in high school — not in church or in my youth group."

    “I didn't really know what substantiated my Christian faith."

    "I haven't been able to answer questions on campus about my biblical beliefs."

    An idea was born. It was time for Ratio Christi to start reaching out to high school students in addition to what we were doing at...   More
