I would never actually consider myself to be a good apologist, but I have always had an interest in spirituality and other theological subjects. When I was a kid, my family always watched Bishop Sheen. I was fairly young at the time, but I still listened to what he said, so a lot of that stuff still got absorbed. (Yeah, I’m pretty old.) I’ve also read a lot of books about Saints and spirituality that most people my age (at the time) wouldn’t have even thought about reading, back then.
More recently, I’ve spent a lot of time reading stuff online, like at New Advent. Watching EWTN and reading CAF have been great sources, too. I’ve been very lucky to have had a lot of very spiritually minded friends and relatives that taught me a lot over the years, too. But, I really started getting into apologetics when I joined a couple of other forums, where the occasional thread popped up about religion. But, I was really horrible at it back then. I said some things that were so far off base that I’m embarrassed to even think about them, now. I hope I do a little better than that, now, but I’m still very far from being an expert, by any means.
