As example of Christian apologetics[edit]

I hear this event cited both by classical apologists and presuppositional apologists as the model for all Christian apologetics, each side claiming it to be exemplary of their particular methods by stressing different parts of the message differently. Peter Kreeft in particular has a lot of interesting stuff to say about this. Maybe some information on the role of this account in Christian apologetics would help the article? --Nerd42 (talk) 20:50, 11 May 2011 (UTC)

I looked at the page for Christian apologetics now for the first time. It looks like Hurricane Katrina passed through it. It is a mess itself with multi-colored flags at the top. And the talk page was no peaceful event either. Clearly Wikipedia owes an apology to all the readers who click on that page - pun intended.
So while that article needs so much help, discussing that messy topic may lead to further confusion, given that Wikipedia does not successfully tell a reader what "Christian apologetics" are. As a start one needs to tell a reader what apologetics are - and at the moment we (i.e. Wikipedians) have failed there. So I would start thee, get that house in order, before creating further confusion. History2007 (talk) 21:01, 11 May 2011 (UTC)
