10 Online Resources to Help You Defend Your Faith

by Mar 14, 2024Apologetics, Christian Living

When asked a difficult question about why you hold orthodox Christian beliefs, “I don’t know” or “Let me think about that and get back to you” are two of the best, most honest answers you can give. People respect authenticity, and if you can’t answer a question, don’t try to fake it. However, you should try to find the answer afterward. This not only gives you an opportunity to follow up with them in a later conversation, but better equips you for the next time someone asks the same question.

There is a wealth of resources and organizations whose sole mission is to help the believer become better equipped to answer those tough questions in defense of their faith. Below is a list of ten websites that provide a variety of tools to help with apologetics. They all have a wealth of information you can access for free as well as many books, videos, and other resources available to order.
