Resources for the Christian apologist

A Christian apologist is by necessity a jack of all trades.  Objections to the Christian faith come from all directions and so inevitably the Christian apologist has to learn how to interact with a variety of perspectives.  At the same time, there are core arguments and evidences that surface time and time again.   There is, therefore, a reason for the apologist to read broadly but also be intimate with some ‘classics.’

This site will catalog some of the resources.  Links to books and websites that are useful, sometimes with reviews, will help apologists expand their reference library and expand their ‘toolkit.’
