With so many books, videos, and other online materials begging to be discovered and read, where is the best place to begin studying apologetics? These five books are among my personal favourites and, in my opinion, present a solid starting point for those looking to get into the ministry.
A couple of critics have given us a few instructions on how to live but are they consistent or have they made a hilarious blunder?
The atheist debate notes have asked us to conjure up the evilest God possible. What do I think of their findings?
During debates with online atheists, one thing I notice is that the focus always turns to the nature of God’s character. What should be our focus when we evangelize to the non-believer?
After a short break over the holidays, it feels good to be back in the apologist’s seat. Getting here wasn’t easy and I made plenty of the mistakes along the way. As the new year begins I’d like to offer a few handy tips for those interested in entering apologetics.

There has been come confusion among critics of the faith regarding Jesus’s stance on family. Was He anti-family? Let’s take a look.
Although science isn’t my field and my knowledge of such an area is limited, I wanted to share this fantastic and well-researched video by YouTuber and apologist Inspiring Philosophy. I hope this can break the attack of delusion and open the door to intelligent discussion among both believers and non-believers.
Did the Biblical authors use manipulation tactics to win over converts? If not, why is the church doing so today?
