More Details

The Bible calls us to give a defence for the hope we have in Jesus. It's the Christian life that prompts the question, and relationship is the best context to display and explain the hope we have. This course helps us to understand where objections to the Christian faith come from and how to answer them with a relational approach to apologetics.
