A Brief Summary of the different types of Apologetics

So in this endeavor of questioning my faith.  I’ve spent a significant amount of time going to apologetic websites and blogs.  MVWcreative is a blog that did a short explanation on the seven forms of Apologetics.  (Now just as a reminder, his post are just brief summaries, not exhaustive studies on the subject.)

1. What is Cultural Apologetics?

2. What is Cumulative Case Apologetics?

3. What is Evidential Apologetics?

4. What is Pre-suppositional Apologetics?

5. What is Classical Apologetics?

6. What is Defensive Apologetics?

7. What is Positive Apologetics?

*Update 06/11/2013…Another great source I found on the different types of apologetics as present by Radical Discipleship.

  1. Classical Apologetics
  2. Evidential Apologetics
  3. Historical Apologetics
  4. Presuppositional Apologetics
  5. Prophetic Apologetics
  6. Philosophical Apologetics
  7. Apologetics in Conclusion

About M. Rodriguez

When I first received Christ salvation, I made it a priority to read the whole bible and I did. But it was the Bible that made me question my faith. For I found it flawed and lacking. Due to this I launched a personal inquiry/investigation into my faith, and ultimately realized that the Christian God of the Bible was indeed man-made. Now I Blog about those findings and life after Christ.

  1. Robert says:

    2, 3, 5, 6, and 7 are all intertwined. In fact I’d even say that they’re all subtypes of 3, which is the preferred method of most of the big names in apologetics today (people like Craig, Pruss, Swinburne, Collins, McGrew, and Moreland, for example).

    4, however….avoid 4 at all costs. It’s not taken seriously even by most scholarly Christians. And the authors’ mention of Plantinga and reformed epistemology aren’t entirely correct, by the way. They’re similar, but not identical to, presuppositionalism.

  2. like I said brief summaries, short and to the point
