Someone (Kelseigh, I think) talked about a blog post about book recommendations. Good idea. Here are some I would recommend
Reason for God Tim Keller-This is the best book out there. Period. Written by a pastor of a church in New York City. He’s a Rresbyterian too!!!!
Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis The classic. Nothing more needs to be said.
The God Who is There Francis Schaeffer
Science and Christianity
I love Jesus and I accept Evolution Denis O. Lamoureux-Don’t agree with points of his theology and he is missing some key gaps in his argument, but other wise, some good things to say.
The Language of God Francis Collins- The book that started my path to accepting most of evolution.
Science and Faith: Friends or Foes? C. John Collins
Anything by Ken Miller
ANYTHING by N.T. Wright-If you haven’t read any of the good bishops work, you can’t seriously say you have really thought through the historical claims of the New Testament.
Jesus and the Eyewitness by Richard Bauckham- A very technical book, but a revlotionary one in the field of the reliability of the Gospels.
Is God a Delusion? Eric Reitan One of the best things about this book is how he demonstrates that while Dawkins is an excellant scientist, his grasp of philosophy, theology and history is high school at best and blantantly cavalier at worst.
Why People Believe Weird Things-An excellant book by Shermer. Too bad more people, Christian and atheists haven’t read it.
Orthodox by GK Chesterton- It’s amazing how much Lewis actually borrowed from this guy. His mystery novels are first rate, too.
For you Fiction Lovers:
Anything by Flannery O’Connor
Anything by Walker Percy, especially if you love “philsophical” novels.
The Space Trilogy, Screwtape Letters and Till We Have Faces, by CS Lewis, bet you thought I was going to say Chronicles, didn’t you? They don’t make the top three of his works in my mind.
Anything by Charles Williams A friend of Lewis and Tolkien, his novels are very high on the weird-o-meter. That’s why I love them.
Anything by Jane Austen. Yes, I said it, Jane Austen. She is my saucy little English tart.
I’m sure there are others, but those the ones that jump out at me. I’ll try to think of more later. Feel free to post your own.
