Why yet another Apologetics blog?

Good question, glad you asked.

I am not going to claim to have any special insights, or advanced training. I am not formally educated, or have special life experience. I am not going to try to convince you that I am even worth listening too at all. All I know is that I know the Gospel, and I have a voice, so I am commanded to share. If I reach only one soul it will be worth it. If I don’t, well, putting things in writing is always helpful in order to sort things out in my own mind.

I think it was J Warner Wallace that first said that the world doesn’t need a million-dollar apologist, but a million one-dollar apologists. That phrase has stuck with me and has inspired the name for this blog. I am not sure I qualify even as a one-dollar apologist, but I am able to put in my two cents.

I have been studying Christian Apologetics for almost two years now. I have read a large number of books on the subject and have been constantly watching lectures and debates (driving my wife crazy in the process). I listen to podcasts while working and follow many Apologetics pages on my phone. Recently I have been engaging atheists in the comment sections of social network sites, with mixed results. I have not received any formal training, but have always been auto-didactic, and have picked up an eclectic supply of information. I can’t seem to make up my mind yet on any certain topic to really delve into. I am hoping that this blog will help me organize my thoughts and allow me to find my own voice.

If you are reading this post it means that I have reached at least one person, and that you are interested enough to go back to the humble beginnings of this site to see how it started. Let me say to you, if I can do it, so can you.
