Over the years, this site has seen a number of designs. The page you are currently viewing shows our latest design.
However, since thousands of older pages on this site were built with no particular, consistent design in mind updating those older entries is a slow, page-by-page process.
Thus for a long time to come you'll still find many old-style Apolgetics Index entries, ranging from really old pages (ouch!) to a more recent look, and of course our latest design
In addition, all new pages (with the same design as the page you are currently viewing) have a navigation bar which - where appropriate - includes a link to the A-Z Index.
Note: Currently, the 'alphabetical pages' - for example, the list of subjects starting with the letter 'T' - include many brief entries. "Extended entries" have their own pages. Since many of the alphabetical pages have grown too long (with too many short entries), we've changed our approach. Over time, each entry - long or short - will be on a page by itself. This will ensure that pages load faster, that entries are easier to find in off-site search engines, and that it is easier to link to them.
You will probably not need our site map. But since we frequently add or update items, you will want to check the home page each time you visit Apologetics Index.
Apologetics Index provides 47,830+
pages of research resources on religious cults, sects, new religious movements, alternative religions, apologetics-, anticult-, and countercult organizations, doctrines, religious practices and world views. These resources reflect a variety of theological and/or sociological perspectives.
The site provides information that helps equip Christians to logically present and defend the Christian faith, and that aids non-Christians in their comparison of various religious claims. Issues addressed range from spiritual and cultic abuse to contemporary theological and/or sociological concerns.
Apologetics Index also includes a Cult FAQ, information about cult experts, ex-cult support resources, up-to-date religion news (ReligionNewsBlog.com), cult news, articles on Christian life and ministry, and a variety of other features.
