Some Christian apologetics seem to simply confirm what believers already know. Others genuinely strive to hear the concerns of nonbelievers. This site fits the latter approach, with a “Skeptic Welcome Station” for agnostics, atheists and others who don’t believe.

Visitors are encouraged to peruse a collection of articles, many of them aimed at debating evolution and promoting the intelligent design theory. Writings of C.S. Lewis are also featured prominently.

Site director Tom Woodward, a college professor, tells his personal journey from non-belief to Christian faith. He recalls the “skeptical” question of John the Baptist, who asked Jesus, “Are you really the Messiah, or should we look for another?” (Matthew 11:3). Jesus doesn’t denounce John’s skeptical questions, Woodward notes, so he doesn’t either. Instead, site moderators have engaged many skeptics in dialogues that evolved into virtual friendships.

The site itself may not convert skeptics, but it has clearly initiated meaningful conversations.
