John Lennox: What Is Apologetics?

The Bible commands Christians to be apologists (1 Peter 3:15). However, despite the appearance of the term, apologetics has nothing to do with apologizing. In Greek, apologetics refers to giving a reasoned defense of one's position. Thus, in Plato's Apology, Socrates doesn't apologize to the court. Instead, he gives a defense of his actions.

John Lennox explains apologetics in a Christian context.
