Have you ever wondered where you can go to access apologetics information on the internet? After evaluating a number of websites Quest has narrowed the list down to the top five for our readers. One of the most difficult tasks is attempting to narrow down apologetics web sites to the “top five.” There are so many apologetic focused web pages on the Internet it is a challenging task to say the least. Many web pages have upwards of 60 or 75 listed web sites that have an apologetics bent. Some are better than others but many have unique features that each person my find to be helpful. We have attempted to include a unique reason why each web site has been identified as being unique and helpful. Quest finds many of these web pages to have tremendous resources but may not agree with all of the positions of writers.
This is the undisputed champion of all apologetics web sites. This site has more resources and references than you could possibly imagine. It is difficult to believe that one would not be able to find what you need on this web page so this is a GREAT place to start! This page was founded by Brian Auten who is apart of the ministry called Reasonable Faith in Belfast, Ireland in the UK.
2. Christian Apologetics & Research Ministry
Coming in at a very strong second place is CARM. This website was founded by Matt Slick in 1995. This is a great place to find a wide range of resources and information including a radio program you can listen too and a school where you can take basic classes in theology and apologetics. Slick provides a great place where you can quickly identify a location for a number of resources on world views, world religions, early church fathers, cults, etc. Each of these main heading has options for additional topics within that general area. These are then linked to various articles the reader can pull up and evaluate. Most are very well researched and written. CARM is located near Boise, ID and it is a great website!
3. RZIM (Ravi Zacharias International Ministries)
RZIM has been a stalwart in Christian Apologetics for upwards of 40 years. The founder of the ministry Ravi Zacharias has been at the fore-front of Christian Apologetics with the mission of impacting those who are cultural shapers across the globe with the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

4. The Poached Egg
Yes, it is a very odd name however, this web page has a large volume oflinks to resources, articles and links. Founded and maintained by Greg West as to what he calls a “continually expanding virtual library of articles and essays compiled from allover the world wide web.” This is a website that is well worth having as a bookmark! The name is taken from the famous quote by C.S. Lewis in his book Mere Christianity – very clever!!!! The web page is the byproduct of a larger ministry that is called Ratio Christi that is in Erie, Pennsylvania. Ratio Christi is dedicated to a student apologetics ministry where they have chapters on a number of college campuses. Perhaps most impressive is the catalog of apologetics organizations on their “apologetics online” section.
