Class Description: The purpose of this course is to give you a pathway to understand how to defend your faith, and synthesize a way to do so. We'll overview different historic approaches, look at the strengths and weaknesses of those approaches, and give you resources for further exploration in terms of canon development and text criticism, alongside approaching creation and evolution as Christians. You'll have 3 major writing assignments, and a fair amount of reading and discussion in class of the material read. The payoff will be a secure understanding of how to articulate your faith using various approaches, depending on who you're persuading, and with an understanding of how that approach can glorify God.
