Spotlight On Apologetics Guy

Apologetics Guy was founded by Mikel Del Rosario, who, has quite an impressive resume’ in apologetics. From his bio it says that he received an M.A. in Christian Apologetics with highest honors from Biola University (2003). He has shared the stage as a speaker, and lectured alongside expert apologists like William Lane Craig, J.P. Moreland, Craig Hazen, and Greg Koukl.

His website is quite user friendly and includes six categories for your viewing pleasure. The one that jumped out to my eyes was his “Basics” section. In the world of apologetics, apologists can get so deep in the various studies of theology and other worldviews etc, that we can sometimes take for granted that people are not on the same page -or even book for that matter- as we are. (I know I have been guilty of this) Mikel does a superb job in not overlooking the ground level of what it takes to defend the Christian faith.

Another great feature of his website is that he is diversified in a range of topics. Though his bread and butter (if I’ve read him correctly) seems to be “Classical Apologetics“, but he branches out into other fields of study and defense as well. One of my favorite topics within apologetics is dealing with cults, and he has a nice three part series 10 Surprisingly Simple Tips for Talking with Cult Members that gives simple and concise tips on how to reach out to the various cults that are out there. Most of these tips will work for not just one group, but many of the sects who have tried to usurp and hijack Christianity.

In addition to all of the great material that Mikel has provided for free on his website, he also has a curriculum and online courses where you can learn from him personally, for a small fee. A huge bonus about his online course, which runs five weeks, is that it’s fully accredited. That’s a great feature for those who are working towards that paper and the letters which accompany it. On his resources page he has listed a variety of products (at a very reasonable price) consisting of lectures and digital books from various apologists; on topics such as Why The New Testament Can Be Trusted, Defending the Resurrection in Everyday Conversations, and Arguments for the Existence of God etc.

In closing, the most important aspect to the Apologetics Guy website and ministry, is that it/he comes across as very humble and approachable. I have unfortunately witnessed first hand where there are veteran apologists who are simply burned out and rather jaded. Understandably, you can get worn down by incessant debates and attacks from people who may misrepresent your view, call you names, or even worse threaten you and your family, but that’s part of the game. And yes, Mikel plays the game well while maintaining the utmost respect for his opponents.
