Today's Top Christian Apologist

Updated on November 14, 2010

Are you ready?

Salt and Light

 "You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men.

 14"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. 15Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:13-16

 

1 Peter 3:15"...sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence;"

 

We are called as Christian to defend to faith, and give an answer for why we hold this faith. We educate ourselves and speak with knowlegde of God and His Word. We are living in a time where truth has become hate speech. I encourage you not to be discouraged when it gets harder. I'd like to so you some amazing videos of todays top Christian apologist. Enjoy!

      Professor John Lennox of oxford is in my view one of the top Christian apologist out there. He has a number of lectures on Youtube, check him out. Hes quiet simply brilliant.

      Just found your website while looking for more info on

      Ravi Zacharias - he is my favorite apologist. When I listen to Ravi debate it is like listen to a symphony. He

      is so gifted. Thrilled to find your site and the other

      apologists whom you presented thru these videos. Your salt and light presentation also caught my attention because I have a website called: seasaltandlight.com which I simply put together from images of God's creation out the front window of our home. I will continue to visit your site often.

      spiderpam, thanks for the enjoyable audio and videos. I'm a Craig person myself, having met him the first time in 1996 when he wore a beard and having the opportunity to clarify some issues on the problem of evil with him on another occasion. All these guys are great apologists and worthy of mention. My favorite apologist of all time was my best friend. He died 2003, way to young. He was lovingly called the apologist's apologist or some called him the apologist trainer. He worked to help many apologists with their books and debates. He was the one who introduced me to Dr. Craig along with Francis Beckwith, Hank Hanegraaff, Lee Strobel and many others. He was the original Bible Answer Man Walter Martin's research department. He would always say, "anytime you hear Walter refer to his research department, that's me." When the Heavens Gate Cult killed themselves back in the late 1990's he was the only person who had comprehensive work on them for the media. We would always go and evangelize at the New Age Fairs here is So Cal and they would be there with some other strange people like Timothy Leary. Look him up, his name was Robert (Bob) Passantino.

      First I need a definition. How about this from Wikipedia, "Christian apologetics is a field of Christian theology that aims to present a rational basis for the Christian faith, defend the faith against objections, and expose the perceived flaws of other world views."

      Or this one from the Christian Apologetics and Research Institute, "that field of Christian study that defends biblical truth against anything that opposes it."

      Having discovered this, I am curious why an approach to one's faith should be so exclusive and argumentative considering other spiritual approaches have much to share with Christians.

      I love Ravi! I saw him in person here in Orlando a couple years ago and he is featured in "The Truth Project" which is a great small group teaching DVD set. Great work, Pam. Thank you very much for the edification.

      Pam,

      Another Christian apologist that used to appear regularly on television was John Ankerberg. I remember watching him starting in about 1982 and the last time was about a year ago but I believe the ministry went off the air due to lack of finances. They certainly had some impressive debates on that show.

      I'm going to take a look at the videos you added, I'm betting they're really good.

      Thanks also for the Hub!
