Theology

When considering taking a deeper dive in the defense of the faith it’s important to keep in mind that apologetics is a branch of theology. Specifically, it’s the branch that provides rational warrant for the truth claims of Christianity. In other words, I’m not crazy for placing my trust in the ideas and historical events the Bible says are real.
