Here are some apologetics-focused resources I hope you’ll find useful in your walk with Christ, specifically your desire to ask and answer great questions. If you have any suggestions for resources to add to this page, feel free to send me a message or leave a comment below!

Websites

ConfidentChristianity.com – The blog of apologist Mary Jo Sharp. I especially recommend this series of three posts: “Is it Okay to Question Beliefs?” (1, 2, 3) for excellent thoughts on doubt and questions, and how to respond to them in yourself or others.

Creation.com – Tons of articles, Q&A, videos, and other resources specifically on the topic of creation and evolution. I recommend the posts 15 Questions for Evolutionists and It’s Not Science as a starting point, then make great use of the search bar!

ClearLens.org – Many excellent posts on apologetics, theology, and more (and I was saying this before I started writing for them!). Here are a few good ones to start with:

BeThinking.org  Articles, recordings, and other resources on current issues and apologetics. This lecture on Conversational Apologetics is engaging and truly phenomenal!

AnswersinGenesis.org – Perhaps one of the most famous apologetics ministries, creator of the Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter. The focus of this organization is on answering the world’s questions, specifically in the context of Genesis (origins, the fall, the flood, etc.).

Stand to Reason’s beginning training – A page with some introductory articles about apologetics.

Books

None of these are affiliate links–that is to say, I do not make any money by listing links to Amazon for these books. I find it convenient when reading about a book to have a link for more info, and that’s the only reason why I include them!

Tactics by Greg Koukl – One of my favorites! It’s a practical guide for the how side of apologetics, intended to help you put into action all the knowledge you’ve been learning. Read my review here.

Making Sense of Your World by Phillips, Brown, and Stonestreet – The textbook for the Comparative Worldviews course I took. It’s not written in the most intriguing way, but it’s solid. The focus is on the different types of worldviews in play today, and breaking them down, as well as the evidence for a Christian worldview. It’s on the more philosophical side of apologetics.

Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis – A classic. Lewis writes in a very easy-to-follow, conversational style that nicely blends philosophy and practicality. He progresses through foundational apologetics all the way to some basic Christian doctrine.

The Case for a Creator by Lee Strobel – All the Strobel books are in the style of expert interviews, each targeting a specific category of evidence. I’m still working my way through this one, but it’s excellent. It touches on more of the scientific side of origins. If you’re looking for a focus on the big bang and evolution, this is the book for you.

The New Answers Book 1 – From Ken Ham, the founder of Answers in Genesis, this book (and the other three) is structured in a question-and-answer format, providing answers to questions you have and questions you didn’t even know you had about creation, evolution, and the Bible. Great blend of science and readability.

Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus – This is the true story of a beautiful, painful, passionate seeking of truth that would cost Nabeel Qureshi nearly everything. You get to know Nabeel and the people close to him and feel their emotions, as well as learn so much about what it’s like to live as a son of eastern Muslim immigrants. I learned countless things about Islam, but more than just facts, I learned the lifestyle and the worldview and the culture. I highly recommend this to Christians wanting to better understand the hearts and lives of Muslims. Read my review here.

How I Changed My Mind About Evolution: Evangelicals Reflect on Faith and Science – This is not an apologetic for those who have left the faith or become name-only Christians. It’s a book of personal stories of theologians, scientists, and others, and it’s absolutely worth reading for the understanding it will bring you. Don’t read this so you’ll change your mind about evolution, but so that you’ll change your perspective of those who sincerely love and serve God, but have found themselves on a different path intellectually. Listen to their stories. Let them tell you how they came to this place. And use the understanding you gain to flavor your conversations with more grace. Read my review here.
