Apologist Ignite is the premier Christian apologetics platform for ministries, publishers, and independent apologists to promote their resources and events.

Follow these steps to get started:

  1. Sign up as a user on Apologist Ignite, or sign in if you already have an account. If signing up for the first time, you will need to verify your email address by clicking on the verification link sent to you.
  2. You will automatically become a member of the Community Team when you first join. This is so that you can explore a bit before you create a new Team of your own.
  3. Next, you will want to ensure that your Source has proper attribution by adding one or more Contributors. A Contributor is any person that had a role in the publishing of the Source. The most obvious Contributor is the author him/herself, but you are encouraged to include translators, editors, commentators, and foreword / introduction writers. Once a new Contributor is submitted, it must be approved by a member of our staff before it can be associated with a Source.
  4. And now the most important step: adding a Source. A Source is a written apologetics work (book, anthology, or article) that you wish to promote within the Apologist ecosystem. You must have the legal right (licensing) to submit the Source. Once the Source is submitted, a member of our staff will review it to ensure it meets our standards.
  5. Finally, you will add Contributions to the Source. Source Contributions are the roles that were involved in publishing the Source. You will associate the Contributor(s) that you added in step #3 with the Source you added in step #4 and specifying their specific roles in publishing the Source.

That’s it! Once your Source and its Contributors have been approved, you are now ready to advertise your Source on Apologist Agent and Apologist Social (coming soon).

Advertise on Apologist Agent #

Apologist Agent is an advanced chatbot programmed to accurately and empathetically respond to theological questions. It is trained to provide biblically-based responses that incorporate Bible verses and context from trusted extra-biblical sources. You may promote your apologetics materials by uploading them in plain text format to Ignite, which will then make them available as context for Agent to draw on when responding to prompts.

If your apologetics resource is used as context in one of Agent’s responses, it will be cited in a list of referenced materials — along with a referral link of your choosing. The referral link you enter could be a link to purchase the material from your website or even just more information about your company or ministry.

Apologist Agent Sources

Apologist Ignite reports how many times your source was used on context in an Apologist Agent response, as well as how many times a user clicked on its referral link. This gives you the insight you need to determine the exposure your source is getting by being part of Agent’s corpus of apologetics materials.

Apologist Social (currently in development) is an online community centered around Christian apologetics. It will feature book reviews, discussion forums, and opportunities to promote your ministry, materials, and events.
