Killer post. Bookmarked!

Roger Sharp said...

Nice lists! Check out http://www.confidentchristianity.com and use it if you feel it is worthy :)

Chad said...

Roger,

I have been there and I will add it! I knew while making the page that I would miss many great sites so thank you so much for the suggestion!

If anyone else has any, please feel free to share them.

Thank you Roger and God Bless

winteryknight said...

Many of the links will not work because they use relative URLs. You need to start the URLs with "http://" so that it will be recognized as absolute.

Right now, some of the links are looking like this:
http://www.blogger.com/www.atheistdelusion.net

instead of like this:
http://www.atheistdelusion.net

Because it is looking for the www.atheistdelusion.net off of the blogger.com host name.

Chad said...

WK,

Thank you and I'll fix that asap!

Godspeed

Chad said...

WK,

All fixed! Thank you again for the heads-up.

If anyone else has any problems, please let me know and I apologize for the error.

Godspeed

Jake said...

Chad,
Amazing Job!!! I mean really I think you just created the yellow and white pages for Apologetics. I especially like the Bible study tools.

For His Glory,
Jake

Chad said...

Hey Jake,

Thank you for the encouragement. I hope that others find it useful!

Godspeed

cv3946 said...

Wow! Thanks for mentioning that you created this yesterday! This is an awesome resource. Added it to my favorites. Thanks also for the discussion on inerrancy. I guess I should've thought to ask my wife about it before admitting to you I needed some clarification!

Chad said...

cv3946,

I hope you find it helpful. Hey, when all else fails, ask the wife! Or maybe you should ask the wife FIRST! :-)

Godspeed

Mariano said...

Chad;

Thanks for including "Atheism is Dead."

http://lifeanddoctrine.blogspot.com

aDios,
Mariano

PS: keep up the good, and important, work!!!

Michael Baldwin said...

Wow this is amazing, I can't believe I haven't seen this before! It's especially helpful for apologetics with regards to other religions and cults. I remember a few months ago I looked everywhere over the internet for some GOOD resources on Hinduism as I've been having great conversations with a Hindu girl I know, but I literally couldn't find anything. I ended up having to buy a little book by ravi zacharias, which was a fictitious convo between Jesus and Krishna and then gave her a copy for her bday lol. I'm glad there are a lot more resources I can take a look at, really appreciate the work you've put in to accumulate all this. Chad!

Chad said...

Michael,

I'm so glad that this will help you.

I am familiar with the Ravi Z. series that you are referring to. I have read the one entitled "The Lamb and the Fuhrer" that provides an account of what a conversation between Jesus and Hitler would have been like. Heavy stuff!

Thank you for your encouraging comment!

Godspeed

Mikel Del Rosario said...

Jamie Pellew said...

Amazing list, and a lot of familiar sites to me! I run a counter-cult apologetics ministry designed to defend the truth of the Gospel against the attacks of Mormonism. Do you think it is worthy of your list?

www.answeringmormons.blogspot.com

Either way, I love your blog. Thank you for your work

In Him, Jamie

Quintessential said...

Ex-atheist - A.S.A. Jones' web sigt seems to be shut down temporarily. I found the following comment on a bulletin board:

Re: What happened to ex-atheist.com?

Hi, I actually spoke to A.S.A. Jones yesterday - we are "phone" friends. She has had a multitude of family health issues that have not given her any time to devote to the website. In short, she says she should be able to put the site back up and running within the next few months. She is still keeping the faith!

Chad said...

Jamie,

I added it to the list!

Godspeed

Jackie said...

A few suggested websites you might want to add to your arsenal:

http://y-jesus.org (Available in 10+ languages)
GodResources.org
JesusOnline.com

Hope you find them helpful!
