What are the Best Apologetics Resources for Students?

What Are the Top Apologetics Resources for Students?

With the release of my newest book on teaching apologetics and worldview to the next generation (So The Next Generation Will Know with J. Warner Wallace), I decided to update the list of top apologetics resources for students. There are many more quality resources than this, but here are a few of my favorites:


1. The Apologetics Study Bible for Students. This Bible has quick answers to the top 130+ questions students have about God, the Bible, ethics, and other religions, as well as many other apologetics features spread throughout its pages.


1. Summit Ministries: A life-changing 12-day worldview training experience for students in Colorado, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee.

2. Reality Apologetics Conferences: Weekend apologetics conferences tailored uniquely for students featuring leading apologists, thinkers, and influencers.

3. Impact 360 Immersion: Two-week summer worldview and apologetics experience for high school students in Pine Mountain, Georgia.

4. Wheatstone Academy: One-week worldview experience designed to help students ask deep, meaningful questions, think Christianly about the arts and culture, and cultivate their own faith.


1. More Than a Carpenter (J. McDowell & S. McDowell)

2. Cold Case Christianity (J. Warner Wallace)

3. Is God Just a Human Invention? (McDowell & Morrow)

4. Welcome to College (J. Morrow)

6. Love Thy Body (Nancy Pearcey)


1. Evidence for Faith: Six 10-min sessions, along with study guide and discussion questions, on evidence for the Christian faith with Download Youth Ministry.

2. Advocates: A yearlong apologetics study for high school students in partnership with AWANA.

3. True U: Three 10-part apologetics series for upper high school and college students on the existence of God, reliability of the Bible, and the historical Jesus.

4. The Defense Never Rests: Student workbook to go along with training material from William Lane Craig (ages 10-16).

5. Understanding the Times: High school worldview curriculum for the Christian school classroom.

6. I Don’t Have Enough Faith to be An Atheist: Curriculum created by Frank Turek to go along with his classic book.

7. Foundation Comparative Worldview Curriculum: Designed for small group, church, and homeschool environments (3rd-6th grade).
