There are two main schools of thought among Christians on presenting apologetic defenses of the faith. One is called Evidentialism and the other is Presuppositionalism. Evidentialism basically takes the unbeliever by the hand and says, "Let's assume common ground together in reason or science or historical studies, that sort of thing. And then sharing as we step into the shared world that we both have let me reason with you to the Bible or to the resurrection of Christ. I want to come along side you and lets reason to a Christian conclusion.
The Presuppositionalist begins with the ...doesn't try to reason to the Scripture. He rather reasons from the Scriptures. He assumes the truth of Scripture and reasons from that, and then requires the atheist or the unbeliever that he is debating with to do the same with his premises. So it is kind of like a demolition derby. Everybody gets into their presuppositions and drives around the ring.
