As I see it: On your marks, get set, Go!
Clark, MT; Ross, K. 1992.  Facts and Faith 6(3):10-11. CELD ID 6412

The word apologetics may be more familiar today than it was a decade or two ago. And yet there are still many people to whom it sounds strange. It comes from a Greek word, apologia, which means to make a defense or to make a case for one's cause (Thayer's Greek Lexicon). That cause may be anything about which people argue passionately, but in the case of Reasons To Believe, apologetics refers to defending the cause of Christ, making a case for personal faith in Him.
