Season: 13 Episode: 186
Most women’s Bible studies don’t focus on theology as much as they focus on felt needs. Why is that? Isn’t theology for women too? Nikki Stull from Women In Apologetics advocates for why every believer ought to be a theologian. We talk about:
- How does the average Christian study theology?
- Reasons Christians need both apologetics and theology.
- Some next steps for how to dive deeper into Bible study.

About Nikki Stull
Nikki holds a Bachelor of Arts in Ministry Studies. She has almost made it halfway in her degree towards a Master of Arts in Theology. She teaches Bible Studies/Theology/Apologetics classes when the opportunity presents itself and has spoken on various apologetics topics in area churches as well has served as a curriculum consultant for all ages for various churches. Because of her love for theology and apologetics, she started a blog several years ago called Seeking Sacred Truth (which can be found at SeekingSacredTruth.com). She’s been married since June 2005 (over 18 years) and has an ambitious, middle-school son who loves Minecraft, Lego, dinosaurs, and all things science. She’s currently serving as the Events Coordinator at Women in Apologetics and has been with them since November 2021.
The word “theologian” sounds intimidating and like something only smart people do. What does it mean and why do you think every Christian should be a theologian?
You are a firm believer that theological study is of utmost importance. How does someone study theology if they consider themselves an ordinary Christian working an ordinary job?
People often streamline apologetics or theology. Why do Christians need both?
Along with learning theology, some don’t even know how the Bible was put together or why some books are included in the Canon of Scripture. Why is this also necessary?
What are some next steps – maybe 3 – anyone can do today in becoming a theologian?
