Individual Courses

AP120 Introducing Covenantal Apologetics I: Foundations

  • Instructor: K. Scott Oliphint
  • Video hours: 10

Dr. K. Scott Oliphint begins with the basics—what is covenantal apologetics and why do it? What is the basis for defending the Bible’s truths? He provides examples from the Old and New Testaments, and uses the doctrines of Scripture, God, man, and salvation as a biblical warrant for apologetics. Throughout the course, Dr. Oliphint focuses on humanity’s covenant relationship with God in all things.

Dr. K. Scott Oliphint, is professor of apologetics and systematic theology at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, and the author of numerous articles and books, most recently Covenantal Apologetics.

Dr. Oliphint provides ample biblical and theological support throughout.

AP211 Show and Tell: Apologetics in the Postmodern Context

  • Instructor: Jim Belcher
  • Video hours: 6

Dr. Jim Belcher’s course offers a necessary look at postmodern culture and how living in this time affects believers, unbelievers, preaching, apologetics, and the future church. He begins with the philosophical and social background to postmodernism, considers characteristics of postmodern people, and suggests the consequences for these individuals and the community. Finally, Dr. Belcher provides a solution for sharing Christianity in this context.

Contents:

  • Philosophical Foundations: Medieval to Modern to Postmodern
  • The Postmodern Context
  • The Style of Our Apologetics

AP221 Apologetics in an Urban Context

  • Instructor: Carl F. Ellis Jr.
  • Video hours: 6

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.

Contents:

  • The Multifaceted Nature of Theology
  • A Christian View of Knowledge
  • The Practice of Apologetics
  • The Challenge of Apologetics Today
  • Worldviews of the West
  • Shifting Paradigms in Social Outlook
  • Development of the Theological Vacuum
  • The Rise of Ghetto Nihilism
  • Three Phases of Blackness
  • The Roots of Ghetto Culture
  • The Old Paradigm: Ideas, Assertions, and Rationales
  • Toward a Restored Comprehensive Biblical Gospel
  • Anatomy of a Valid Movement

Dr. Carl F. Ellis Jr. is the assistant professor of practical theology at Redeemer Seminary in Dallas, Texas, and the associate pastor for cultural apologetics at New City Fellowship. Dr. Ellis studied under Francis Schaeffer at L’Abri in Hermoz sur Ollon, Switzerland, completed his ThM at Westminster Theological Seminary, and holds a DPhil from Oxford Graduate School.
