We have just launched a companion site to Prophecy Central. It is Apologetics Central. We have been working on this project little by little for over a year, so that it would have enough substance to make it worth visiting regularly.

Christian Apologetics is a description of the work that serious scholars do to provide answers to the tough questions we have about our faith. It comes from the Greek word apologia, “to speak in favor of.” It is a defense of the Bible and of Christian beliefs.

Before saying any more, let me agree with the old saying, “You don’t need to defend the Bible, you just need to use it.” In Ephesians 6:10-18, every piece of armor except one is used for protection. Items like the breastplate, the shield and the helmet are defensive. But one piece is used for offense, and that is the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God!

On the other hand, seekers and followers of Christianity have a right to know the reasons why the Bible stands alone as the one holy book in the world that is completely true and trustworthy. Skeptics can bring up some serious questions that ought to be answered. Great Christian authors from Augustine to C.S. Lewis have provided eloquent answers to these objections to the Christian faith. And today we are fortunate enough to have the ongoing wisdom of many “defenders of the faith” like Josh McDowell, Lee Strobel, and Ravi Zacharias.

Apologetics Central lists about 20 of these heroes, and gives some basic information about each one of them and how you can reach their websites and obtain their resources. Many others will be added soon. In addition to the well-known leaders in this field, there are literally hundreds of sites on the Internet that you might want to visit to understand the essence of Christian belief or for help with various questions about evolution, atheism, cults, and other false teaching. We list many of them for your convenience.

Bible Prophecy is just one branch of the immense subject of apologetics. We are grateful for the privilege of starting this project and of sharing it with you. It will grow gradually, just as Prophecy Central has done over the years. Please pray that it will be beneficial to Christians. We would be honored to have you visit the site.

    Dear Friend in Christ,
    “Praise God for Tattered Dreams” – my memoir – tells how God used the time and space provided by my stroke (at 33) to reach my heart and mind, and lead me to Salvation.
    My husband and I have two sons, who were 1 & 4 at the time. The doctors gave me a 5-10% chance of living, and told my husband, no matter what they did, I’d never get out of bed again. Obviously God had other plans for me, as I’ve exceeded those expectations…in a big way.
    With a BA in English, an MA in journalism, and 18+ years experience in corporate communications, God helped me reset my priorities, which are now, “First comes God, then comes family, then comes others.”
    In the interest of furthering His Kingdom, would you please write a review of “Praise God for Tattered Dreams” and mention it on your website? Simply email me to let me know if you prefer an e-copy or print copy.
    FYI: Praise God is currently available only online at http://www.lulu.com (ISBN=9780578033754).
    Peace,
    Elle
