A Rational Look at Christianity; Basing Reason in Truth

Apologetics Advice from the Professional

J.P. Holding of offers two sets of advice for Christians interested in becoming apologists. The second set is for those thinking of making a ministry or profession out of apologetics. As such, it is likely to have a more limited audience. Still, Holding is one of the few to actually do this so if that is what you are interested in, I am sure it's good advice.

The first set is more likely to appeal to a broader audience and offers some practical advice for those interested in getting down in the trenches with the internet skeptics. I agree with all six points, but think 1) "Be a master of a few trades and not a jack of all trades" and 3) "Don't worry about not having answers to everything -- and not having them right away" will really help you keep your santity and become truly effective in your chosen field.
