Apologetic Resources

Last week, June 24th, James White gave an excellent introductory lecture on his Dividing Line webcast explaining how we should form our methodology for doing apologetics. He makes his case specifically from the text of Scripture without even once mentioning the systems of evidentialism or presuppositionalism. Listen to it or download the MP3 for a limited time: Apologetics Defined.

If you are inclined to watch the Youtube video of the relevant 40 minutes, you can see it here:

Additionally, Dustin Segers, who pastors Shepherd's Fellowship of Greensboro, has a 5-part set of Youtube videos where he leads a study on apologetic and evangelistic methodology. Video uploads are located on the church's Youtube page HERE, and you will have to scroll down the sidebar to find the series labeled Apologetics 051810. To start, here is Part 1.

Then lastly, I have always maintained that the most effective apologetic is a Christian whose life is lived submitted to the Lordship of Christ. Such a testimony of the power of the gospel to change lives is found in a story I ran across of a NBA basketball player by the name of Manute Bol who was from Sudan. I had never heard of him before I read this article. He died last week at the young age of 47, but the impact of his life lived for Christ, especially to the Sudanese people he gave so much to, will be long lasting. The writer of the story, Jon Shields notes, As one twitter feed aptly put it: "Most NBA cats go broke on cars, jewelry & groupies. Manute Bol went broke building hospitals."

Thanks for the plug. I hope these vids will be a blessing to someone who is struggling over the best way to defend the faith.

Soli Deo Gloria,
