Resources Galore!

I've just spent ages writing a list of resources for a seminar I'm giving on Answering Tough Questions on Saturday. So I thought I'd post it here for anyone who's passing. I'll also put it in my website's Talks By Me section. Cheers to Peter for his help with this.

If you spot any glaring omissions or unwise inclusions, I'd be interested to know.

Websites – UCCF's excellent apologetics website. - UCCF's excellent theology website. – Ravi Zacharias International Ministries – seminar from Forum 07 on holding apologetics lunchbars. – Glad You Asked is an evangelistic course which gives an opportunity for non-Christians to discuss tough questions. You staffworker may well have a copy. – living as a Christian in the 21st century. The articles on discernment are particularly helpful. – a Christian perspective on media and culture.
