This is an introductory small group study on Christian Apologetics.

Please note that this is a compilation and selection of existing material, and that throughout this study I have referenced the original literature sources. It is highly recommended that you consult these sources if a more in-depth study is required.

Where to start?

  1. You can work your way through the contents table.

  2. This study can be also be used as a ten week small group course.

    There are discussion questions and a guideline at the end of each section describing the material that needs to be read for the following week. I have also provided the worksheets that I used to facilitate the weekly group discussions, you will need to modify them to suit your particular needs. I have zipped the Word file and made it available, click here to download the worksheet file

  3. An high-level summary is available. Please note that this is very brief and will make far more sense if you have already worked through the actual study.

  4. You can download the entire study in a zipped Word file format
