What does “apologetics” mean?

“Apologetics” does not mean “to apologize,” though they come from the same root word. Rather than making excuses or saying “sorry” (as in apology), apologetics is a logical defense of a belief or position.

This is very important for Christians today, especially children. Why do we believe what we do? Others will ask or challenge at some point in our life, so we need to be ready to give an answer (1 Peter 3:15). This is why our family Bible studies include a lot of apologetics for kids. I know of a kindergartener who was challenged with stanch opposition insisting there is no God. Will your child be ready to meet such opposition?
