An Approach to Christian Apologetics by Dennis McCallum, author of Christianity, The Faith That Makes Sense
Apologetics' Missing Links Why Christian apologetics sites on the Web have a postmodern-sized blind spot. Matt Donnelly notes that "the great majority of Christian apologetics sites overlook the issue of relativism" [Unfortunately, this article is no longer available for free as ChristianityToday.com charges for older items].
Anwering Objections by Greg Bahsen
By studying the objections of unbelievers and preparing to reason with them, we take the high road of apologetics, the road of obedience to the direction of our Lord and Savior. His categorical claim was "I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father except through Me" (John 14:6). The apologist responds to the objections of unbelievers in a way which sets forth the objective truth of Christianity and the exclusive character of the system. He or she offers reasons for belief, vindicating the Christian worldview over against competing systems of thought and living.
Not all believers (or professing Christians) have chosen to take that high road. It has often happened that those speaking for the Christian faith settle for much less (especially but not exclusively in the current century). They have settled for much less than apologetics by reducing Christian commitment to subjectivism. It is certainly true that Christianity brings us a sense of personal peace and confidence before God, and this inner experience of the faith being right and our own coming to be right with God (cf. the witness of the Spirit, Rom. 8:16) cannot adequately be communicated in words. However appeals to this inner feeling do not constitute an argument which should persuade others of the truth of Christianity.
