Apologetics Links

By Mark D. Roberts | Thursday, November 15, 2007

Today I want to suggest four excellent apologetic links.

The first is a short piece by Stan Guthrie of Christianity Today called “Answering the Atheists.” The subtitle is “A Reader’s Digest version of why I am a Christian.” Good food for thought here, especially if you’re not “into” apologetics.

The second link is to what might be the finest apologetics website anywhere. It’s Stand to Reason, featuring the works of Greg Koukl and several other fine thinkers. This site includes written pieces, podcasts, and other material on a wide range of topics. Greg and his colleagues are thoughtful, non-reactionary evangelical Christians. Greg Koukl has a radio program called Stand to Reason, which is well worth listening to, either live or by streaming/podcast. (Photo: Greg Koukl on the air)

The third link is to what many people have called this generation’s Mere Christianity. It is the book Simply Christian by N.T. Wright. In a simple but compelling manner, Wright lays out the case for Christianity in a way that appeals to postmodern thinkers.

Finally, my fourth link is to the latest entry from my guest blogger, Dr. James Arlandson. His latest post is called: “Did Jesus Even Exist? Can you have an effect without a cause?” As always, this is a thorough discussion with plenty of links.

While I’m talking about apologetics links, I suppose it wouldn’t be out of line to mention my own book, Can We Trust the Gospels? In a readable way, this book makes the case for the historical reliabilty of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. It would make a fine Christmas present for anyone who is wondering about the Gospels. I would recommend it especially for high school and college students who are forced to grapple with this issue.

    Darn it. I’ve had Simply Christian on my shelf for far too long. I guess it’s time to read it!

    Hi Mark!

    I have also had NT Wright in my “queu”.

    A great apologist I love, with an exhaustive bibliography on a variety of different issues confronting Christianity today, is Ravi Zacharias. He is quite challenging and encouraging.

    Thanks for the resources.

    Jeff: You’re right. Ravi Zacharias is excellent.

    Thanks for the links. Stand to Reason is a superb ministry. I highly recommend their weekly Podcast and materials. I have used them extensively.

    I thoroughly enjoyed your book as well and have referred to it many times.

    Thanks, Neil. I loved the 80s Lakers too.

    “Defending Our Faith” by R.C. Sproul is a good apologetic read also. I really enjoy your posts.


Thanks for your willingness to make a comment. Note: I do not moderate comments before they are posted, though they are automatically screened for profanities, spam, etc., and sometimes the screening program holds comments for moderation even though they're not offensive. I encourage open dialogue and serious disagreement, and am always willing to learn from my mistakes. I will not delete comments unless they are extraordinarily rude or irrelevant to the topic at hand. You do need to login in order to make a comment, because this cuts down on spam. You are free to use a nickname if you wish. Finally, I will eventually read all comments, but I don't have the time to respond to them on a consistent basis because I've got a few other demands on my time, like my "day job," my family, sleep, etc.
