Early Christians weren’t afraid to study, to learn and to engage in the intellectual fight for the faith. Much of their writings were for the purpose of defending the faith. Interestingly, a lot of it focused on the same kind of charge we face more and more every day: that Christianity is immoral, harmful and generally bad for people and for the nation. Christians took those concerns seriously and answered them thoughtfully. — Tom Gilson (from, How Christians Can ‘Outthink, Outlive, Outpray’ Today’s Many Small Gods)
