Why Apologetics? Why is it so important? Is this something we should be thinking about more, or less? How do we find the balance? Is there a balance? On this week’s episode of indoubt, Justin Brierley joins Isaac to discuss the question, why is the study of apologetics important, and why is it important to have a balanced perspective of apologetics? So often, we can be hyper-focussed on chasing the experience of Christianity or we can narrow in on the discussion of Apologetics and argue for argument’s sake. But Isaac and Justin discuss how each of us can come to a healthy place of understanding the role of apologetics in our day-to-day conversations.
