How to find information in Apologetics Index

Since Apologetics Index first went online, in September, 1996, this website -- along with sister website Religion News Blog -- has grown to include over 47,830 pages. Yet, relevant information is easy to find.

Note: On your trips through the Apologetics Index website you're likely to encounter lots of older style pages -- dating back as far as 1996, and complete with funky color-schemes and odd layouts. Rest assured... as long as it says '' in your address bar, you're still within our website. (And yes, we will update those pages...)

Perspectives / Color Key

The publishers of Apologetics Index operate from an orthodox, evangelical Christian point of view, but the intent of this site is to provide research resources from a variety of perspectives.

We employ a simple color-coding system is used to help you identify the general background of sites, articles and other listings.

Put another way: we don't see ourselves as 'the last word' on the topics addressed. While we certainly have (and share) our opinions we purposely encourage you to do your own research.

We also encourage you to suggest additional research resources for possible inclusion.

Quoted Material

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.

Stubs -- Work In Progress

A website like Apologetics Index is never quite complete. There will always be entries to update and new topics to add.

Throughout the site you'll find both extensive and brief entries. Some entries include pointers to a wide variety of resources, usually from various perspectives, while other entries are - for the time being - briefer and/or more one-sided.

As always, we encourage you to fully research subjects and issues from a variety of perspectives and sources.

One way we approach newer entries is by creating so-called stubs.

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).

While not (yet) complete, these stubs nevertheless provide researchers with useful information -- and you will therefore find links to them within the A-Z index.

Suggest Additional Research Resources

We always welcome suggestions for additional resources.
