    I agree. There are too few women doing apologetics. I have heard women say that they don't get involved in it because they don't like to argue.

    But I think apologetics is way more than disagreeing with non-Christians. Even if women don't participate in debates with atheists, etc., I think every mother out there needs to be able to defend God, the Bible and Christianity in their own homes to their own children. They can play a vital role in helping their kids understand their faith so that they can meet the attacks to it successfully and represent God well when they get out into the world.

    I pre-ordered Sharp's Defending The Faith and expect to get it by the end of this week. Look for my review of it here at Apologetics315 in the near future.
