Apologetics, from the Greek apologia (ἀπολογία – 1 Peter 3:15) is the reasoned defense of Christian theology. To apologize is not to admit fault or say that you are sorry. Apologetics presents arguments for an idea or worldview. It can be a formal debate, an argument, or a simple statement of reasons. While apologetics may involve argument, the goal should not be to defeat your opponent. The goal of apologetics is to give sound reasons for the God of the Christian Bible. It can involve arguments from history, philosophy, math, as well as natural and other scientific fields.
