YES, WOMEN NEED APOLOGETICS, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, APOLOGETICS NEEDS WOMEN

[I love this great article by my good friend Hillary Morgan Ferrer, who has a marvelous apologetics ministry called Mama Bear Apologetics. Read her article about why women need apologetics, and apologetics needs women.]


YES, WOMEN NEED APOLOGETICS, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, APOLOGETICS NEEDS WOMEN


By Hillary Morgan Ferrer
1 Peter 3:15 says that we are to give a ready defense for anyone who asks for the hope that is within. 2 Corinthians 10:5 says that we are to “demolish arguments that set themselves up against the knowledge of God.” Now with words like “defense” and “demolish,” it is not surprising that the field of apologetics has been dominated by men in recent years.
Apologetics is important for all Christians, including women, but that’s actually not what we’re here to talk about today. Whenever you hear people talk about “women in apologetics,” they are usually focusing on why we need to reach women with apologetics. And it’s true, we do! The mandate to love the Lord our God with all our hearts, souls, MINDS and strengths is a universal command. So yes, I get it. Apologetics for women is vital. However, there is a lesser talked about issue, and that is the one we will discuss today: why apologetics needs women!
