How To Build An Apologetics Ministry

I recently listened to an interview of Brian Auten by Wintery Knight. Both men have good apologetics blogs, and they discuss their backgrounds and some apologetic issues during the interview.

For those who aren’t familiar with it, Brian’s blog is Apologetics 315. I suggest that anybody involved in online apologetic work visit the site regularly. The number and variety of resources is impressive, and a lot of the material is unique to that site. See his collection of apologetic-related interviews, for example. I’d also recommend following his Twitter feed.

As far as I know, Brian didn’t start out with a large amount of money, a close association with some major ministry, or other advantages that a lot of popular Christian sites have had. He built his site from the ground up, the same way other Christians could. But few are willing to do that sort of work.


  1. and A-315's Ultimate Apologetics MP3 Audio section is a very useful resource.

  2. I didn't know about Brian's 315 blog. I wondered why he stopped writing about foreign and nuclear policies over at his other blog. :) Duly noted and duly bookmarked.

  3. One thing I don't like is that Auten promotes Romanists like Peter Kreeft. Not only is Kreeft Roman Catholic, but he has some odd, universalistic type views.
