In part 1 of this post, I shared 6 helpful apologetics websites, which I hope have challenged you to be a thinking believer and helped you to answer the questions of your non-Christian family and friends.
Here are the final 6, in no particular order:
(7) Christianity Explored

This site has a page with 15 videos on commonly asked tough questions, including ‘Why bother with church?’, ‘Surely it’s arrogant to say that your religion is the only right one?’ and ‘How can a loving God send anyone to hell?’.
(8) Got Questions
iOS app download
Android app download
This site focusses on questions about the Bible and claims to have over 502,413 answers in its archives! It’s run by non-denominational conservative evangelical Christians who aim to glorify Jesus by providing biblical answers to spiritual questions. There’s a clear statement of faith on their website so you can see where they're coming from theologically.
BeliefMap is a novel approach to apologetics that takes you on a ‘choose-your-own-path’ journey through questions of faith and belief. The idea is that you start with your most pressing question and explore evidence and further questions that follow on from there. There’s a helpful 3-min video to show you how it works. The site is a work in progress so there are some areas where content is missing. BeliefMap supports orthodox evangelical beliefs.
(10) Ravi Zacharias International Ministries
RZIM is all about ‘Helping the thinker believe and helping the believer think.’. There’s lots to explore on the site including audio, video and articles. It’s quite hard to navigate as content isn’t presented thematically, so it’s best either to use the search bar, or just go exploring and see what sparks your interest.
It’s worth subscribing to the free Just Thinking magazine.
(11) Answers in Genesis
A wealth of highly detailed and well-curated information, with great links to further resources. The focus is on helping Christians defend their faith and proclaim the Gospel of Jesus effectively by providing answers to questions about the Bible (particularly Genesis). Key issues covered include creation, evolution, the age of the earth and science. [Their statement of faith asserts that they believe in a young earth and a six 24-hour day creation which is a view that many believers, myself included, do not agree with.]
(12) Apologetics Academy
Apologetics Academy is run by Jonathan McLatchie, a Phd student in Newcastle. He is a Christian speaker, writer and debater who holds a Bachelor’s degree (with Honours) in forensic biology, a Masters (M.Res) degree in evolutionary biology, and a second Masters degree in medical and molecular bioscience. Currently, he is studying for a Phd in cell biology.
His site explores matters of faith and science. The unique feature of Apologetics Academy is that you can take part in free weekly webinars hosted by leading scholars and thinkers on subjects such as the multiverse, genetics, human origins, thermodynamics, quantum physics, young earth theory, religion, feminism, LGBT issues and many other interesting topics. The beauty is these is that you can submit questions live for the experts to answer. You can also watch videos of previously recorded webinars.
I hope you enjoy investigating the above. If you missed part 1 of the series, you can see the first 6 apologetics websites here.
