Book recommendations, Days 6, 7, 8

Sorry for the delay, but it was a very busy weekend with no time to post. I’ve decided to theme this post around apologetics, that is proofs for the Christian faith. Four books will be included. Each is worth the read; any combination would be a great gift.

First up is Joan Ball’s Flirting With Faith a review of which can be found in my book reviews. This is a first rate book, helpful to any and all who are struggling with issues of belief.

Next is a book that was hugely popular in recent years, Lee Strobel’s The Case for Christ. Strobel, also a former atheist like Ball and the next writer, Josh McDowell, is a journalist who undertook to find whether truth supports Christianity.

Josh McDowell’s The New Evidence That Demands a Verdict is one of the more comprehensive–some might even say “encyclopedic”–volumes in the field. Contains volumes 1 and 2, with new material for this publication.

Finally, a recent work from Christian writer/philosopher Dinesh D’Souza, currently the president of King’s College. D’Souza’s book, What’s So Great About Christianity?, was praised even by a few atheists for its thorough approach.

Just a guy writing some things.

  • I picked up Flirting with Faith on your personal recommendation a few weeks ago and read it last week. It was a great read and I passed it on to my wife who then recommended it to our Life Group.

    Ball has a great writing style and the book is an easy, but inspirational read. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
