Melissa Cain Travis (‘12) holds an M.A in Science and Religion from Talbot School of Theology and is currently a professor at Houston Baptist University, a national speaker, and author for Apologia Press. Her work in apologetics has gained publicity as she was recently featured in an article in the April 2015 issue of Christianity Today. In the article, Cain Travis states that “Women have this misconception that theology and apologetics are something men do, but the more women we have entering apologetics at the lay and academic levels, the more women we can disciple and draw into loving God with their minds”. The growing number of women studying apologetics is fostering well-rounded perspectives on apologetics in today's Christian culture. As a faculty member at HBU, she specializes in looking at arguments for God based on reason and scientific study. Her desire, along with the other apologetic professors at HBU, is to spread the gospel and make a case for Christ for future generations to come. To read the full article, click HERE.
