Biola's Christian apologetics programs at Talbot School of Theology are led by some of the most respected thinkers and scholars in the field — individuals who seek to honor God with their minds and engage the world with a rationally grounded, intellectually sound case for faith. Talbot’s Christian apologetics programs seek to train Christ followers to defend the faith, present the gospel and impact the world.

Both of Talbot's Christian apologetics degree programs will stretch you as you explore a faith-based perspective on topics such as evolution, the reliability of Scripture and the problem of pain. You'll have the opportunity to wrestle with challenging questions, both in the community of your classes and independently as you reflect on course material. You'll come away with a secure foundation of faith, a compassionate heart and a mind that's been prepared to answer questions with confidence and authenticity.
