Answering apologetics questions for a living can sometimes feel a bit like riding a unicycle on a high wire, fifty feet up, no safety net, with only a tiny umbrella for counterbalance—in a hailstorm. When done well, it can draw oohs and ahs from onlookers. When you falter, the results can also be spectacular but not in a good way.

I started thinking about this when my Facebook newsfeed exploded with reactions to a...
