Season: 9 Episode: 132
More women are finding value in knowing what they believe and why they believe it. Why now? Are women supposed to be seen and not heard in the church? Laura Powell from WIA is on the show this week and we talk about why we need Christian women’s voices in our culture and why apologetics matters.

“Why apologetics matters to women now more than at any other time” is our topic today. Let’s start with what apologetics is and what it’s not.
What are some of the issues women face today that apologetics prepares us for?
With J Warner Wallace, Frank Turek and other well known men in apologetics, why are women needed in this area and why do you think women haven’t jumped in as much until now? (We do have Alisa Childers, Natasha Crain and Mama Bear Apologetics, but they are just becoming more known).
What about people who say women shouldn’t be heard in the church and that means they shouldn’t be in apologetics?
Most don’t know what apologetics is. Moreover, I don’t know if it’s because I work with apologists at OCC and CE, or if it’s because I’m in the church, but I do see it growing and I see women in apologetics rising up. What do you suggest for those who desire to learn more?
