Clearly a communication breakdown had occurred… and not the sort of Communication Breakdown (pictured right) that one desires to revisit again and again. Nay! This was a simple breakdown of verbiage. When my friend heard the word “apologetics” he had thought I was suggesting that Christians should go around apologizing to everyone for the claims of Chrsitianity – but nothing could have been further from the truth!
So… What is meant by “apologetics” anyway?
