The purpose of apologetics in religion.

I thought this was a very good and succinct purpose of apologetics. On the Mormanity blog, a commenter, "Pops," wrote

"The goal of apologists is to knock down obstacles that might prevent others from taking their spiritual quest down avenues the former have found fruitful.

God could easily prove the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon. But then, wouldn't that sort of defeat his purpose?"

I thought it was interesting that Elder Holland's talks for the past two conferences have been apologetic. Very good talks, too.

Apologetics goes back centuries to the early years of christianity with Jerome, Ignasias, orgin, Justin the Martyr, and Tertullian. their purpose was to show that christianity was a viable faith, and not just something for the lower class of romen society.
