Apologetic Resources for Kids

by Daryl E. Witmer

Christian apologetics isn’t just for theologians, educators, or adults. What follows here is a compilation of apologetic resources for youth (toddler to teen), all of which have been acquired and reviewed for our AIIA Resource Library. This listing should prove helpful to parents, church leaders, Sunday School staff, homeschoolers, and Christian educators. AIIA does not necessarily endorse every detail of every response by every one of these resources, but we do recommend them all on the whole. Our comments follow the listing. Call us for more info.
