In this paper an account is offered of a project concerning the prolegomena to Christian apologetics. Two historical soundings are discussed that, between them, raise the questions of the starting-point and content of Christian apologetics. The primary Christian confession and the identity of the confessors are considered, and the challenges to apologetics from within and without the church are noted. The presuppositions concerning transcendence, immanence, and history are discussed, as are the traditional starting-points of reason, faith, and experience. The conclusion is that Christian apologetics will take the form of a reasoned eclecticism that sets out from, and is compatible with, God's saving act in Christ.
