AP221 Apologetics in an Urban Context

not enough ratings
In this course, Dr. Carl Ellis describes the assumptions and implications of urban apologetics. The urban environment is distinct and growing quickly, and a biblical apologetics approach that recognizes this is more necessary than ever. Unlike classical apologetics which stems from philosophy, urban apologetics also incorporates sociology, anthropology, and history (global and local). Dr. Ellis uses the African-American experience as a case study to clarify his points.
