Who Made God? by Edgar Andrews

In recent times the so-called “new atheists,” most notably Richard Dawkins, have launched an aggressive attack on the existence of God in general and the God of the Bible in particular.  In books such as Dawkins’ The God Delusion, the “new atheists” have taken their agenda to the masses with a popular writing style that […]

The Case for Christ by Lee Strobel

Strobel was for many years an investigative reporter for the Chicago Tribune.  He was converted after carefully examining the evidence for the claims of Christ as found in Scripture and subsequently became a minister.  In The Case for Christ, he uses his investigative training and skills to lead his readers through the same spiritual journey […]

Jesus Among Other Gods by Ravi Zacharias

In a pluralistic society all religions are equally true.  Zacharias claims that this is an impossibility because the various religions do not give the same answers to the vital issues and questions which confront life.  When these issues are thoroughly worked out, it is discovered that Jesus Christ is unique—He is not like other gods, […]

The Case for the Real Jesus by Lee Strobel

The Case for the Real Jesus is Lee Strobel’s follow-up to his excellent 1998 book The Case for Christ.  This volume seeks to answer some of the more recent objections to Christianity popularized largely through the internet, novels such as The DaVinci Code and new aggressive forms of atheism.  Skeptics, taking advantage of the ignorance […]

The Reason for God, by Timothy Keller

Timothy Keller has pastored Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan since 1989. In the course of twenty years in New York, Keller has encountered many skeptics who vocalized sincere concerns about the Christian faith. The Reason for Goddescribes Keller’s approach to handling the most pressing questions of our time, especially those of young people. The first […]

A Reasonable Faith by William Lane Craig

Craig was for many years a professor at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School where he taught apologetics. This book is a product of those classes and, as such, is a weightier apologetic work than many would desire. But for those up to the task A Reasonable Faith offers a gold mine of information. Craig defines apologetics […]

Who’s Afraid of Postmodernism? by James K. A. Smith

For a basic understanding of postmodernism, and its affect upon the church, you could not do much better than this little volume. Smith rightly traces postmodernity to three French philosophers, Derrida, Lyotard, and Foucault, then summarizes, illustrates (through literature and film) and clarifies what they really are saying. He then “takes these philosophers to church” […]

Truth Decay by Douglas Groothuis

This is an absolutely marvelous defense of truth in our age of postmodernity. Groothuis cuts right through the rhetoric and pierces the very heart of postmodernists, both outside and within the evangelical church. He deals well with both the philosophical – the elite who challenge objective truth, and the practical – the filtering down of […]

Total Truth by Nancy Pearcey

Pearcey is a disciple of Francis Schaeffer. In Total Truth she reintroduces Schaeffer and his apologetical approach (sadly, many today need to be introduced) to a new generation. But she does much more than that as she traces the historical and philosophical underpinnings of Western culture as we experience it today. Pearcey develops three separate […]

Time for Truth by Os Guinness

I thoroughly enjoy reading Guinness. He always stretches me, gives marvelous quotes, and is usually on the money in his evaluations. Time for Truth is no exception as it deals, in overview fashion, with the beliefs and consequences of postmodernism. What Guinness does so well is to carefully document the past philosophies that have taken […]
