Apologetics is about building the case for our Faith...learning how to explain and defend our Faith.
Basically, there are 3 types of apologetics: natural apologetics, Christian apologetics, and Catholic apologetics.
But rather, an apology in the ancient sense of the word - which is to make a reasoned defense of something or someone.
