Everyday Apologetics

I'm currently teaching a very basic introductory class on Christian apologetics at Highland Park Church. I've named the class Everyday Apologetics, since the focus is on equipping believers to engage in one-on-one defense of the faith with people they interact with everyday.

Based on the little book If You Could Ask God One Question, the class explores common questions and misunderstandings about Christian belief, and seeks to provide basic rational, logical and Biblical responses to these questions. *My friend Landon Braithwait will also be writing and teaching a few of these lessons.

You can download the student guide here. Listed below are the lessons, with links to the teaching notes for each, as well as audio.
