RESPONDblogs: Free Resources for Responding to Christian Skeptics


Hey there – here are some free resources to help you as you make a case for Christian faith and belief. And if you are not yet personally convinced yourself about the claims of Christ – these free resources might help you.


I’m a big fan of David Robertson’s book “The Dawkins Letters” – much recommended! C S Lewis’s important work, “The Abolition of Man”, is also there – it’s quite tough going in places and so I’ve included a brilliant video commentary on the book that helped me get his more subtle points.


I have personally checked each and every one of these links – so they are correct at time of posting. Apologies if one doesn’t work for you. Try googling the book if you run into trouble? And please let me know of any problems and I’ll update the link.


There are a mix of downloadable PDF’s (indicated in brackets) and web published book versions here.


There is no intentional copyright infringement going on here – these books have been made available online for free use. This list was first compiled by
