Jesus’ Resurrection on Easter morning is the focal point of Christian apologetics. As the apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians:
“For if the dead are not raised, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is useless; you are still in your sins. … For if only in this life we have hope in Christ, we should be pitied more than anyone.” (1 Corinthians 15:16-17, 19 NET) (more…)
This coming Friday, March 4th, the 5th Apologetics Canada Conference kicks off at Northview Community Church in Abbotsford, BC, Canada. I can hardly believe it has been five years since I attended the very first one. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to make it this year, which is disappointing for me because I love meeting all of my apologist friends and experiencing the excitement of so many people interested in Christian apologetics (a Christian apologist’s dream!).
But one of the main reasons I’m bummed is that one of my favorite Christian apologists is going to make his 3rd appearance at this year’s conference! (more…)
I will be speaking at the Science and Faith Symposium in Prince George BC Canada on the topic: Creation vs Evolution: 4 views.

Do you get blank stares when you mention apologetics? Should we drop the term and find another, like case-maker? Having tried apologetics as well as other terms, I think the problem is deeper. What can we do, and what might we learn from others who share a similar identity problem? (more…)
People believe all sorts of things. Some believe in aliens, while others don’t. Some believe in global warming, while others don’t. Some believe in evolution, while other’s don’t. Some believe in a God or gods, while others do not. Why the disagreement, given there are certainly people of good intention and intellect on either side of many important issues? Why should we believe something? (more…)
It isn’t much of a secret anymore that the church in the West is in crisis. If you haven’t read one of the many church-produced or sociological studies, you’ve probably noticed it just by watching the news or looking around at society. But why is this the case? How did we get here and, more importantly, how do we fix it? (more…)
I can’t lay claim to being great at planning, as I had intended to finish this series some time ago. But with it being Holy Week, and with Easter just around the corner, it seemed a perfect time to conclude by looking at the evidence for the Resurrection of Jesus. (more…)
The idiom ‘forest for the trees’ in American English is a phrase that means that one might get so caught up in the details that they miss the larger concept or the goal; they are looking at the trees so closely, they don’t recognize the forest. This can be a danger in Christian apologetics; especially for us apologists! (more…)
