September 21st, 2012Mastering Apologeticsby Joseph Pearce

The St. Austin Review has always advocated education as if truth mattered, as the theme of a recent issue illustrated. This being so, I'd like to draw attention to an exciting new program at Houston Baptist University. It's a Masters in Apologetics, which pays due attention to the connection between faith and reason and to the importance of art and literature to what might be termed cultural apologtics, or evangelizing through the power of beauty. The theological and cultural dynamic at HBU is "merely Christian" in the robust sense in which the term was used by C. S. Lewis and the school, unlike some other Protestant institutions, is very Catholic-friendly. The full program of courses can be viewed here:
