About The Listings

The purpose of Apologetics Index is to encourage and facilitate research regarding religious cults, sects, new and/or alternative religious movements, apologetics ministries, apologetics-related issues, counter-cult ministry, Christian denominations, world religions, etcetera.

Therefore, Apologetics Index contains links to Christian, non-Christian and secular research resources.

Examples:

  • If you are looking for information about, say, Mormonism, you will find listings for Christian apologetics ministries, secular anti-cult sites, but also links to the Mormon Church and Mormon apologetics organizations, as well as selected articles on the subject.

  • Likewise our section on, for example, Wicca, includes resources from Christian, secular, and pagan perspectives.

While the publishers operate from an orthodox, evangelical Christian point of view, the intent of this site is to provide research resources from a variety of perspectives. Thus, unlike many other websites that deal with the issues Apologetics Index addresses, many topics on this site include links to pro-, contra, and neutral presentations. See also: Apologetics Index Viewpoint.

We encourage you to fully research subjects and issues from a variety of perspectives and sources. You may also want to read our disclaimer.

Work In Progress

Please note that this site is a work in process. It is never quite finished, is not all-inclusive (many topics are slated to be added), and is not complete.

  • 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.

  • Entries are expanded and/or added as time and energy permit.

  • Priority is given to those subjects on which we receive many inquiries, and/or topics currently in the news.

We welcome suggestions for relevant resources to include.
