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

ClearLens.org – Many excellent posts on apologetics, theology, and more. Here are a few good ones to start with:

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

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.

How to Lie with Statistics by Darnell Huff – I haven’t read it yet, but I’ve heard it’s good. This isn’t your typical apologetics book, but it does provide a good awareness of how even science can be manipulated by an agenda.
