Why Minor in Apologetics at PBA?

Apologetics—which comes from the Greek word meaning “defense” (apologia)—is the sub-discipline in theology and philosophy that helps Christians know and show the truth, goodness, and beauty of Christianity. It involves answering objections raised against the reasonableness and desirability of Christianity as well as offering positive reasons for believing Christianity is true to the way the world is (i.e., reasonable) and true to the way the world ought to be (that is, desirable). This undergraduate minor in apologetics aims to equip students to know and show the truth, goodness, and beauty of Christianity.
