TS230 : Christian Apologetics (3 Credit)
Academic Year : AY 2019-2020 Sem 2
About this course
From apostolic Christianity to the 21st century, Christians of every place and culture have been criticised for their faith and compelled to make a public explanation of why they believed and how they lived. This apologetic challenge has only become more varied and complex in the present globalised world, as different philosophical, cultural and religious ideas and lifestyles interact at a greater pace and proximity. While this presents greater opportunities for missions and evangelism, it also introduces diverse challenges for the Christian faith, and thus calls for a more dynamic approach to Christian apologetics. This course will survey the theological foundations for Christian apologetics before considering the use and limits of historical, scientific and philosophical arguments in apologetic discourse. It will also explore strategies that will help students articulate their faith and dialogue with non-believers in multi-cultural and religious contexts.
