Every Christian Is an Apologist Now (Part 2)

Garrick and Timothy are still adventuring through time with a second-century apologist named Aristides
2

This is the second half of an exciting two-part episode of The Apologetics Podcast. Garrick and Timothy are still adventuring through time with a second-century apologist named Aristides, exploring three key points in his apologetic that addressed those that were skeptical of Christianity in his day. Aristides understood that every Christian is an apologist—and that’s the truth that your intrepid cohosts are doing their best to recover.

However, the dynamic duo doesn’t stay put for long as they return to their DeLorean and launch into a perilous exploration of modern civic liturgies. Soon, Garrick and Timothy find themselves face to face with an intergalactic bounty hunter immersed in an age-old honor culture. Then, they confront the deeply theological commitments of Christianity that have persisted through the centuries, calling the church of today to faithful public practice of truth. The adventure ends with a look at the stars as they wistfully long for another season of The Mandalorian. And also, why didn’t the members any 1980s power metal band think of naming themselves “Böünty Hüntër”?

Here’s Part 1 of the podcast, in case you missed it:
