I’ve been asked to teach a four-week Adult Education class (one hour for four Sunday mornings during Advent). Praise God - this topic has been sorely neglected in Catholic Parishes.
I’ve been involved in apologetics for twenty years; I have an extensive library and consider myself very well informed. However, I have never attempted to present Apologetics in a classroom setting to a (presumably) receptive audience (my audience is generally hostile to my viewpoint).
I have a total of four hours of instruction time (probably three hours “quality” time), and my audience is not expected to be well informed even about general apologetic topics.
I’ve torn up at least ten prospective syllabi. I’m finding it very challenging deciding what topics to cover in such a short timeframe. I’ve come to realize that teaching the class will probably be far easier than deciding what to teach!
I would very much appreciate any suggestions!!!
