Urban Apologetics for Today's Youth

366D Urban Apologetics for Today's Youth

Much of the New Testament was written in urban settings, in which the Christian communities had to deal head-on with issues such as race, equality, justice, sexuality, money, and economics.  But much of today’s apologetics (engagement with the questions that people are asking about Christianity) come from suburban churches and academic studies.  Urban believers—those who live and minister in America’s inner cities—often face unique issues, not often addressed by the larger Christian community.  In this course, we seek to connect the riches of the Gospel with the issues facing cities to bring about healing.
