An Apologist Confronts His Doubt

source: youtube.com

Mike Licona was at a spiritual crossroads, and he couldn’t have reached it at a more inconvenient time.

As the apologetics coordinator for the Southern Baptist Convention’s mission board, Mike gained the reputation of a stalwart defender of Christianity. He’d written two books on the historicity of the Resurrection. He traveled the country, debating the philosophical merits of Christianity on college campuses and in churches. But as he continued his doctoral studies, Mike felt a familiar presence lurking near the edges of his consciousness. The unsettling specter he thought he had banished had returned.

His wife Debbie could sense it too. Mike describes the moment they acknowledged its unwelcome reappearance. “One night I’m lying in bed and I figured my wife was asleep. We probably hadn’t said anything for half an hour. And then I just heard her voice pierce into the darkness. ‘You’re doubting again, aren’t you?’”

He could avoid it no longer. Doubt had made a dramatic re-entry into the apologist’s life. But this time was different. This time he would face it head on.

A Simple Way to Develop Application for Your Sermon

LogosPro_blog

Let’s be honest: sermon prep is long, difficult work. When preparing a sermon or lesson, I would typically spend 95% of my time studying the meaning of a passage and the significance of the surrounding context. I’d consult commentaries, track down key terms, and perform in-depth word studies. But even after hours of grueling work, one of the most important steps still remained: application.

The hard task of exegesis often left me with little time to demonstrate practical ways the insights I uncovered connected to people’s lives. But with Logos I can discover how master preachers handled a particular text—and how they applied its message to the lives of their hearers.

In this video, one of our Logos Pros shows you how to incorporate both modern and classic sermons into your Bible study and sermon prep, using one of our most popular sermon collections: the John MacArthur Sermon Archive.
