Apologetics is derived from the Greek word (apologia) meaning “defense” or “answer.”  Apologetics is giving a reason for the hope of Christianity and a defense of the gospel.  Because of the identity of Christians with the One true God, the Christian worldview is antithetical with the world of unbelievers who hate their Maker and thus Christianity as well.  Christian apologetics serves its Creator by affirming Him as the basis and purpose of rationality before men, and showing that the basis of other
worldviews cannot account for the reality they live in.  The goal of reformed apologetics is to defend the gospel from the wisdom of the world by silencing its foolishness and offering the only possible interpretation of reality in light and hope of Jesus Christ.
