3.1 Christian Resources: Apologetics – Christian Answers

At this time of year, near Resurrection Sunday, the topics of Jesus’ life, miracles, death on the cross, and resurrection often come up. Christian Answers takes on these and other questions in sections for adults and children. You might start with the resurrection and discuss how to answer challenges or questions with your older children, then glance at the main page with its changing list of monthly questions.
