Saint Augustine of Hippo on Giving an Account of One’s Faith

St. Augustine of Hippo teaching in Rome

It is good nevertheless that you also know how to support what we believe by defending it; for the Apostle Peter commanded us to be always ready to give satisfaction to anyone asking us for the reason for our faith and hope…  We should always explain the just grounds of our faith and hope to questioners, whether they ask honestly or dishonestly.

* This excerpt is from “Sic et Non” by Monk Peter Abelard
