About Our Research Resources
Variety of Perspectives
While the publishers of Apologetics Index operate from an orthodox, evangelical Christian point of view, the intent of this site is to provide quality research resources from a variety of perspectives.
Therefore, unlike many other websites that deal with the issues we address, many topics on this site include links to:
- non-Christian, and/or
research resources, presented from:
- pro, and/or
viewpoints. In other words, while we'll usually give you our informed opinion, we also encourage you to do your own research.
We don't just throw a lot of links at you. Instead we try to find the best, most helpful resources on each topic.
You're also welcome to suggest additional research listings.
A simple color-coding system is used to help you identify the general background of sites, articles and other listings.
These color keys are meant as handy visual aids - not full-blown theological commentaries.
For example, they are helpful to quickly find a site that addresses Scientology from a Christian perspective, or one that deals with Wicca from a non-Christian viewpoint.
They are not meant to convey, say, the degree of orthodoxy or heresy of the information linked to.
Christian (in a wide sense of the term. We and/or you may not necessarily agree with everything preached or practiced)
Non-Christian (i.e: other religious background)
"Grey Zone" or Offkey

Throughout this site we quote material from various resources. Some of it, quoted inline, "looks like this; navy-colored text between quotation marks."
...most quoted material looks looks this -- an indented block of text with a vertical, blue-colored bar to the left.
More of than not you'll find the citation directly underneath the quote.
Note that we often turn specific terms or phrases within quotes into clickable links that lead to additional information.
