Defense or Defensive

I think apologetics is a very interesting issue for emerging generations.  I am a regular visitor to and reader of a few apologetics websites and have read much on the topic in the last 10 years.  And lately I've been starting to wonder if what many call "a defense" of the faith has really become about being "defensive" about the faith. 

In other words, has apologetics turned from being the work of defending the faith against error to being about feeling defensive about our position in the culture?
