Title: Apologetic Conversations


Author: Cheung, Vincent



Our subject is apologetics. Specifically, I have in mind the intellectual vindication of the biblical worldview and the destruction of all non-biblical worldviews in the context of informal debates, such as in personal conversations. Formal debates are regulated by elaborate rules, time limitations, and each side are often called upon to defend or refute previously announced propositions. These factors combine to construct a rather "artificial" environment for intellectual confrontations.

He must think and operate strategically.
