One-Stop Apologetics: Visit these 6 Supersites today!

LocationBookmarksSTART HERE: Apologetics Supersites to Visit – and Bookmark

Want a fast track to finding faith-defending resources and practical help?

Here’s a list of a few great places to start. The first three sites, especially, will quickly bring you up to speed in two ways:

1. They feature the best answers for our times to all the main objections to Christianity, and

2. They analyze current events from a Biblical perspective to help you formulate well-thought out answers to challenges from secular society.


#1. The Poached Egg Greg West

This site is HUGE! It’s also continually updated with content from all over the internet. (Which leads me to a quick disclaimer – I don’t personally endorse every source linked to from the Poached Egg. Nevertheless, you’ll find plenty of excellent content of all kinds here.)

In the words of founder, Greg West: there is almost nothing this blog does not cover in terms of apologetics resources. (He’s right.) You’ll come away with something good every time you visit!

The Poached Egg is a Christian Worldview and Apologetics Journal, a huge, continually expanding virtual library of articles and essays compiled from all over Internet. The site derives its name from a famous C.S. Lewis quote in Mere Christianity in which Lewis said that a man who claimed to be God {but wasn’t} would be on a level with a man who said he was a poached egg.

I’d highly recommend following The Poached Egg on Twitter (@ThePoachedEgg), Facebook, or subscribing to the daily email digest or the monthly e-newsletter.

And the site’s YouTube Featured Channels is a fantastic gateway to the the best video content on multiple apologetics sites


#2. Apologetics 315 Brian Auten

An equally HUGE site, updated daily. Founded by Brian Auten in 2007, Apologetics 315 is “an accessible and growing repository of educational resources for the defense of the Christian faith.”

Another goal of the site is to serve as a means of networking within the apologetics community. To that end, Brian maintains a Directory of Christian Apologetics Blogs which you can access here.

There is way too much on this well-developed site to mention here, so I recommend that you check it out for yourself. Here are some highlights:

Interviews with 150 Christian apologists
– The 16 best Apologetics Podcasts and the Ultimate Apologetics mp3 Audio Page
– 12 free Apologetics Powerpoint Presentations
you can use!


#3. Cold Case Christianity J. Warner Wallace, “The Evidence Whisperer

This is a very active site, filled with fresh content several times a week. Content includes articles, video, podcasts, radio, and even TV broadcasts.

Former atheist and career homicide detective, J. Warner Wallace is absolutely passionate about what he terms Christian Case-Making. His passion is contagious and his resources are sharp and highly relevant for right now.

It’s worth following him on Twitter because he reads and scans 400 apologetics blogs every day and posts links to the best evidential articles – essentially a Christian “Drudge Report(News aggregation site run by Matt Drudge.).

A highlight is the development of innovative apologetics tools and practical tips for engaging skeptics.  For example, this post helps you see where someone who rejects Christianity is coming from so that you can better reach them with the truth. Another very useful and free resource is the Monthly Bible Insert which you can download here


#4. Probe.org

Probe has been answering apologetics questions for 40 years, and has amassed over 1,800 articles. The staff will also respond to emailed questions in the unlikely event the answer cannot be found in their database.

Probe is also featured on several radio stations and you can listen online or download mp3s of past broadcasts here.

A freebie on the site is a collection of downloadable Powerpoint presentations that you can access here. Topics include Christian Evidences, Bible Reliabily, Current Issues, and resources for children and teens.


#5. Truthbomb Apologetics   Faith Christian Fellowship Williamsport, Maryland

Not as huge as the Supersites, but a good collection of apologetics resources, mostly articles and some video. Founded in 2007, some highlghts are:

The Apologetics Arsenal – links to apologetics questions, organized alphabetically.
-The Free Apologetics e-Book library – great collection. Topics include apologetics, Christian living, logic, and philosophy.

Follow the site on twitter at @TBapologetics.


#6. The Christian Apologetics Alliance

Short, well-written blog posts on every conceivable apologetics topic. Go here for a full list of blog post categories on this site.

The CAA has an active social media presence (for one, a Facebook community of nearly 2,500 apologists where issues of the day and various apologetics issues are robustly debated).

Another feature is the free quarterly magazine, “Equipped”
Launched October, 2014. Themes of the first three volumes are, respectively, Evidence for the Existence of God, Evidence for the Existence of Jesus, and Evidence for the Resurrection.

(Note: For some reason, you’ll need to click on the title of each volume until you download the pdf. The first time you click on the title, it may take you to a screen that looks identical – just persevere and click on the title in the new screen.)


I’m so grateful for the gifted and passionate faith-defenders God has given to us in our times! I hope you will be encouraged and equipped by the resources they have developed.

Before we move on, I’d like to pray for these dedicated men and women – and for you:


Father, thank you for the men and women who love you and your people enough to do the hard work of contending for the truth. Thank you for their sacrifices of time and resources to make these materials available to the Church.

We ask that you would prosper them, protect them, and encourage them. Please give pray silhoette sitthem creative ideas for resources that can be used by ordinary people, give them favor with people both inside and outside the Church, and help them to be very discerning as they study and teach the truth.

Thank you so much that there IS truth, and that you’ve revealed it to us. Thank you that we have some firm ground to stand on in the midst of turbulent, uncertain times.

Father, I pray for myself and for the visitors to these sites: that our hearts and minds would be changed and strengthened by encountering truth and, especially, Truth in the form of your son, Jesus. I pray that you would make him precious to us as he is to you, and as we are to you.

I pray that we would know the truth more and more, and that it would keep setting us free until we are fully conformed to the image of Jesus. Thank you for this glorious hope!
Amen.
