What is an Apologetic

This may be an silly question but what is an apologetic?

This Wikipedia article is a good starting point: Christian apologetics. It’s very long, so if you’re just interested in the definition, stick to the first paragraph.

Thank you for this comment. The site proved to be very helpful:) .
