Believe it or not, I’ve been looking at the subject of apologetics since the beginning of the year. I really hope you have found it useful. As I don’t like my blogs to be too long, some of the subjects have not been as ‘in depth’ as I would have liked. And believe it or not, I could have said a lot more.
I thought that this week I would finish the series by providing some links to some great resources on apologetics in case you fancy studying the subject further. I have also listed some of my favourite apologists.
One of the best sites with thousands of apologetics links is ‘Apologetics 315’ http://www.apologetics315.com/which has all sorts of resources, such as; Articles, blogs, podcasts and a whole page of excellent MP3 downloads. It can be a bit overwhelming when you first look at it, but it’s fun to explore.
Another great resource is ‘be thinking.org’ which is a student Christian union site with a lot of material for further study http://www.bethinking.org/apologetics
One of the first sites I discovered, when I first became interested in this subject is CARM which stands for Christian Apologetics Research Ministry https://carm.org/They have some great material on just about every ‘apparent’ contradiction in the bible giving a reasonable explanation for each one. They also have a lot of information about all sorts of religious groups and cults which I have found very useful.
If you are looking for more information on creationism, you won’t do much better than ‘Answers in Genesis’ which has a lot of good scientific material. The link is https://answersingenesis.org/
Some of my favourite Apologists who are my heroes at defending the faith are:
· Ravi Zacharias http://rzim.org/
· William Lane Craig http://www.reasonablefaith.org/william-lane-craig
· Michael Ramsden http://www.bethinking.org/author/michael-ramsden
· Lee Strobel – author of many great and accesible books such as “Case for Christ” http://www.leestrobel.com/
Another one I have discovered recently is Cliffe Knechtle (thanks Arthur) who has amazing conversations with college students. He has a YouTube channel called “askcliffe” In fact all of these people you can find on YouTube. Ravi and William Lane Craig have some great debates with Atheists such as Richard Dawkins.
If you know of any good websites that you have found useful, please put the links in the comments box below.
Next week I will be starting a new subject, but if you would like me to cover a subject, please let me know. God bless
