It is a great option for those who want to gain an understanding of the deeper elements of the Christian faith and modern issues facing the apologetic community.

You’ll have the opportunity to advance in pastoral, missions, Christian administration, teaching, and writing positions, as you minister to others with your advanced knowledge of Scripture and acute ability to defend it.

What Will You Learn in Our Master of Theology (Th.M.) – Christian Apologetics?

When it comes to the Christian faith, there are many miracles to be explained by apologists for those with questions. C.S Lewis once said, “Miracles are a retelling in small letters of the very same story which is written across the whole world in letters too large for some of us to see.” You will learn how to respond to the contemporary denial of those miracles, focusing on the resurrection of Jesus.

Another question often heard by ministers and apologists is, “If God is omnipotent, then why does he allow evil to exist?” You’ll take a course that allows you to explain evil in the world and the concept of hell and what happens to sinners in the afterlife. You’ll bring some sense of peace to those with unanswered questions.

In addition to these subjects, you will also you will complete a capstone course related to Christian Apologetics. You will help to contribute to the general knowledge and be even better prepared to present a rational defense of Scripture in your congregation or ministry-related organization.
