It’s impossible to sometimes to know where to start when choosing a good book to read.  There are so many out there and although we’re told not to judge a book by its cover it’s hard not to!!  So here are some books that we have found helpful in our thinking through various issues to do with the Christian faith…

The Case for ChristLee Strobel

Lee is a former atheist and very intelligent and logical man who set out to prove that Jesus Christ and the Biblical story of Him could not have been true and accurate.  In that journey to prove against Christ, he ended up proving Christ so undoubtedly true that Lee had no choice except to believe in Jesus and become a Christian – one who follows Christ and seeks to share Christ with others.  Does any of this sound familiar? Maybe you should read this book…or at least watch the video! (CLICK HERE to watch a video of it)

The SourceJohn Clayton assisted by Nils Jansma

John is very similar to Lee Strobel mentioned above in that he was an atheist who set out to prove against the existence of God, only he – like Lee – ended up proving the existence of God and no longer being able to deny it.  To quote directly from his “About Us” page on his website, “The author is John Clayton, a retired physics, chemistry and earth science instructor from the public schools in South Bend, Indiana.  Mr. Clayton holds a B.S. and M.S. from Indiana University in math and physics and a M.S. from the University of Notre Dame in earth science.  He taught in the public schools for 41 years and has been doing presentations on the compatibility of science and faith for 41 years. “

S. Lewis website

C. S. Lewis was one of the intellectual giants of the 20th century and arguably the most influential Christian writer of his day.  He was a hard core atheist for many years before converting to Christianity largely due to the influence of some of his great friends including J. R. R. Tolkein of The Lord of the Rings.  CLICK HERE to read his brief biography. “Cross” Examinations of Scripture and Biblical teachings Debate videos of Frank Turek (Christian) vs. Christopher Hitchens (Atheist) Video clips of various topics relating to intellectually proving the Bible Links to many excellent resources for those seeking proof and Truth Why 3 out of 4 Christian teens walk away from the church after they leave home.
