If Christians are going to be capable, powerful, efficient teachers of God's Word, we must not only pay attention to what we tell those who are interested but also how we tell them. Yes, we must focus our attention on the message of God's Word that we share but also the method in which we do so. Our message, the Gospel (ie, the good news of the Kingdom), this does not change, but we do adjust our methods. Why? We are seeking to reach as many receptive people as possible. "You will be my witnesses ... to the End of the Earth." - ACTS 1: 8.
Christian apologetics [Greek: apologia , “verbal defense, speech in defense”] is a field of Christian theology which endeavors to offer a reasonable and sensible basis for the Christian faith, defending the faith against objections. It is reasoning from the Scriptures, explaining and proving, as one instructs in sound doctrine, many times having to overturn false reasoning before he can plant the seeds of truth. It can also be earnestly contending for the faith and saving one from losing their faith, as they have begun to doubt. Moreover, it can involve rebuking those who contradict the truth. It is being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks the Christian evangelist for a reason for the hope that is in him or her. – Jude 1.3, 21-23; 1 Pet 3.15; Acts 17:2-3; Titus 1:9.
What do we mean by obligated and what we mean by evangelism are at the heart of the matter and are indeed related to each other.
EVANGELISM: An evangelist is a proclaimer of the gospel or good news, as well as all biblical truths. There are levels of evangelism, which is pictured in first-century Christianity. All Christians evangelized in the first century, but a select few fit the role of a full-time evangelist (Ephesians 4:8, 11-12), as was true of Philip and Timothy.
OBLIGATED: In the broadest sense of the term for evangelizer, all Christians are obligated to play some role as an evangelist.

MISREPRESENTING JESUS Debunking Bart D. Ehrman's "Misquoting Jesus" is an attempt to look behind the scenes at Ehrman's book, and get a picture of his mindset as he penned it by the way he worded something, or repeatedly worded something, or left something out, and far more. This is not to say that I did not get into his arguments, and debunk them, for that was done as well. By the time you finish this book, you will find that Bart Ehrman in Misquoting Jesus is evangelizing for atheism, and using his misleading words to find new members, by way of doubt, contributing to the unwary Christian's spiritual shipwreck.
