The Poached Egg Christian Worldview and Apologetics Journal is a website founded and edited by Greg West. Greg is passionately committed to the cause of Christian apologetics; providing an adequate and reasonable defense of the Christian faith. The Poached Egg is a large and continually expanding virtual library of articles and essays compiled from all over the World Wide Web. Noted apologists, biblical scholars, philosophers, scientists, historians, students, and laymen all come together under this one site.
Because The Poached Egg is a mix of original articles, scholarly commentary, Christian news, controversial issues, and other relevant content, there is almost nothing this blog does not cover in terms of apologetics resources. The layout is friendly, easy to navigate, and there is a wealth of information to be found. Topics include: The Historical Jesus; Is God a Moral Monster?; The Universe and Self-creation; The Case for Christianity, Evolution and Intelligent Design; reviews of new book releases in the field, and much more!
The Poached Egg derives its name from the famous C.S. Lewis quote from, Mere Christianity. “A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic -- on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg -- or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God: or else a madman or something worse.”
With so many resources and so much content, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised each time you visit. The Poached Egg is a one-stop shop for discovering vital resources that you may not even knew existed. Whether you are new to apologetics, or a veteran apologist, The Poached Egg should be one website that every Christian has bookmarked and shares with their church community, skeptics of Christianity, family and friends, and fellow believers who may be struggling with the doubt.
Greg believes that in today’s modern, post-modern, and relativistic culture, where truth is sacrificed on the altar of tolerance, and indifference and skepticism are on the rise, that “apologetics is vital for every believer; to help equip them not just in defending their faith, but in sharing it as well.” As he has succinctly put it:
It is not only reasonable to question when it comes to matters of faith, but also responsible. If we are not open to investigating dogmatic sacred or secular beliefs, whether they be our own or those of others, and placing them under scrutiny, then we are destined to be tossed about on the waves of popular opinion and become potential victims of those wolves in sheep’s clothing who prey on the ignorance of others.
