For the last 3 years I learned so much from catholic answers and I still learn something every video.
This course was a pleasure...Jimmy Akin presented the material in a logical way. Learned so much and highly recommend this great course!
Love the course, only about 30% complete so far. Looking forward to version that can be used to teach in parish environment.
An excellent course, very well thought out and presented.
An improvement that could be made Is in the short quizzes which are fine. Rather than just letting you know whether you got the correct answer, provide a brief summary of why the answer is correct ( or incorrect) which provides another learning experience
Jimmy does a great job kicking off The Catholic Answers School of Apologetics with the Beginning Apologetics course. I found it well organized and highly informative. i can't wait for the next course offering.
Makes a complicated subject easy to understand.
Formal, apologetic training is something sorely needed in today's Western culture, where devoted Catholics live in a culture surrounded by skepticism and even outright hostility to all things religious. Too many people are infected with the poison of moral relativism and refuse to acknowledge basic realities such as the existence of objective truth, but there are still those people who will listen to reasoned arguments with an open mind. It is those people that good, apologetic arguments can reach to plant the seeds of truth, such as the existence of God, Jesus as God incarnate, and the historical establishment of the Catholic Church through Jesus. In the course on Beginning Apologetics, Catholic Answers, Inc. has developed an outstanding series of online video lessons that teach the what of the Catholic faith, and how to convey that truth to a skeptical audience. The course is composed of 41 videos, presented in small, bite-sized segments of 5 - 20 minutes long, followed by a quiz to test one's knowledge. The course comes complete with a study guide, and with the notes one can take, and with practice of the techniques and tactics of apologetics, over time one can become skilled at explaining and defending the Catholic faith to a skeptic. Nobody else in the Catholic world is doing this, and Catholic Answers, Inc. should be highly commended in their efforts to train a whole new generation on how to explain defend the faith with clarity and charity.
This is a great way of learning how to defend our faith. I recommend this tool to anyone who is serious about learning more.
