Lecturer

Dr. Ted Cabal

This course equips pastors and lay-leaders with the intellectual tools needed to be able to “give a reason for the hope” that is ours in Christ the Lord (1 Pet. 3:15). We will focus on the rationale for belief in Christ by observing how Biblical faith should be defended as an organic whole. Consideration will be paid to the nature of apologetics, its history and various methods. This will be followed by addressing various challenges to the faith.
