Project    Wittenberg is home to works by and about Martin Luther and other Lutherans.    Here you will find all manner of texts from short quotations to    commentaries, hymns to statements of faith, theological treatises to    biographies, and links to other places where words and images from the    history of Lutheranism live. 
The    purpose of this site is to promote, extend, and defend the theology of    Confessional Lutheranism, as reflected especially in the Symbolical Books    of the Evangelical Lutheran Church.

Apologetics - Defending The Faith 

Sound    Witness believes that evangelism must begin with clear communication of the    objective substance of Christian faith and practice. Sound Witness seeks to    speak to the minds of people, communicating objective biblical truths so    that they might have the assurance of God's forgiveness and favor, and thus    be better equipped to discern, not only the errors of sects/cults, but also    the shifting winds of contemporary popular "Evangelicalism". Few    consider the broader implications of many aberrant teachings popular in    "Evangelicalism" today; those who do are not popular. Many    Christians, when hearing such voices, hide behind a curtain of polite    ignorance. Sound Witness aims to open this curtain and call Christians to    walk in the Light. 
Answers    in Genesis is an 'apologetics' (defending the Christian faith) ministry.    Because Genesis is the most-attacked book of the Bible, AiG, as a    specialist ministry, defends the historicity of the Book of Beginnings most    of all. It is AiG's goal to equip Christians to give a credible defense of    Genesis, and to show that the Bible is the correct foundation for thinking    about - and interpreting - every aspect of reality.
The    Creation Research Society is a professional organization of trained    scientists and interested laypersons who are firmly committed to scientific    special creation.

The    Institute for Creation Research (ICR) is a Christ focused Creation ministry    where science and the Bible are fully integrated.
