Trying o! Yes! Sort of! Well, just read on and decide for yourself.
The term “apologetics” creeps into Christian conversations on occasion, but many don’t really know who and what apologists and apologetics are. Apologists are everywhere, and anyone can be an apologist. Not a religion, denomination, sect, club or organization, apologetics is largely a frame of mind or attitude of an individual.
The term ‘apologetic’ comes from the Greek ‘apologia’ meaning a factual verbal defense such as the type of argument a lawyer might give a jury on behalf of a client. So, while the root is similar to that of ‘apology’, apologists are defenders and deliverers of facts, not persons making excuses… contrary to definitions found in so many modern dictionaries.
Trying to clear things up…
Apology – a document, speech, conversation, video or any communication in defense of Christianity.
Apologist – one who makes delivers an apology to intellectually defend the faith.
Apologetic (n)– a particular way of defending the faith.
Apologetics – either the practice or disciplines of defending the faith.
The classic of children's literature, The Chronicles of Narnia, with over 100 million copies sold in 47 languages was written by one of the most famous apologists, C. S. Lewis. Other noted apologists you may have heard of include: Lee Strobel, Ravi Zacharias, Norman Geisler, Josh McDowell and R.C. Sproul.
The noun and verb form of ‘apologia’ appear 17 times in the Bible. Perhaps the most appropriate passage is concerning apologetics is:
“ but in your hearts sanctify Christ as Lord. Always be ready to make your defense to anyone who demands from you an accounting for the hope that is in you;  yet do it with gentleness and reverence.” (1 Peter 35:15-16)
In simple terms, apologists practice the defense of the Bible as the inerrant Word of God. They do this through learning, study, thinking, discerning and questioning to find the truth… answers to questions… that arise regarding the Word of God. There are several philosophical approaches to apologetics, including: classical (logical), evidential (factual), reformed (theistic) and fideism (faith-based). However, the casual apologist may not and need not necessarily recognize such distinctions.
Few people advertise being apologists, but many people privately practice apologetics to better understand and be confident in their own faith. Some may engage in apologetics and not even realize it.
So, Christian apologists do apologize when defending their faith, but they don’t apologize for doing so.
“If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth only soft soap and wishful thinking to begin, and in the end, despair.” ― C.S. Lewis
