Of late I've been putting a lot of my research efforts into meta-apologetics, that is, to thinking about the nature of apologetics, and I've been doing this in the context of on-going research into the nature of Christian Spirituality, Classical Rhetoric, and the Transcendental values of Truth, Goodness and Beauty; all of which has, I think, proven quite fruitful. I've given three talks on different aspects of this research which I'd like to highlight by presenting them here:

‘The Damaris Approach - How Paul in Athens Provides a Biblical Basis for Engaging with Popular Culture through Classical Rhetoric’ (43:00) 1st Sept 09

'Apologetics in 3D' (55:00) 24th Sep 09

'1 Peter 3:15 - Apologetics: What, Where, When, Who, How & Why?' (31:00) 23rd Nov 09
