APOLOGETICS & CRITICAL THINKING

Apologetics (from the Greek apologia, 'speaking in defence') is the rational defence of Christianity.

This typically involves the justification of Christian claims in response to non-Christian critiques.

Critical thinking is the process of rationally and objectively evaluating information and argumentation.

It requires intellectual honesty and a degree of scepticism.
