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.
