I am graduate student of theology and I was reading some of your posts and articles about professional apologists. I was wondering if you could give me some exact details about the differences between apologists and theologians. I ask this, because while in your various articles you mention that while a degree is theology can be helpful for being an apologist, it is not necessary. I know, however, that at times my professor has written non-scholarly articles for various publications (in fact, he just wrote one for This Rock). I have, of course, engaged in informal apologetics many times with friends, family, etc., but have never written anything formal or any formal speeches.
I enjoy both apologetics and formally studing theology and was hoping to get some clarification on these two careers.
