What is a ‘stub’?

Topics we’re working on

A ‘stub’ is an entry which, when first added to Apologetics Index, we considered too short and/or too incomplete to highlight on the front page (and in the articles RSS feed).

It could be that we don’t yet have enough information, or that we simply do not yet have the time to produce a full entry.

Among other things stubs can include

  • topics from our super-long ‘To Do’ list
  • new groups, movements, organizations or individuals in the news, and
  • topics suggested by our readers

While not (yet) complete, these stubs nevertheless provide researchers with useful information.

Keep in mind that we strive for a balance in the information we provide –generally pointing to research resources from a variety of perspectives. That may not yet be the case in these unfinished articles. (See also ‘About the Listings‘ and ‘Work in Progress‘ in the How To Use Apologetics Index section.)

As always, we welcome your input, including suggestions for additional research resources.
