The Earth. Christianity. They go together.

Top apologetics books

Throughout the centuries, there have been a number of very able defenders of the truthfulness of the Bible and Christianity. C. Michael Patton at Parchment and Pen lists Top Fifteen Must Have Books on Apologetics. His top five are:

  1. Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis
  2. The Case for the Resurrection of Jesus by Habermas and Licona
  3. The Resurrection of the Son of God by N.T. Wright
  4. Faith Has its Reasons by Rob Bowman and Kenneth Boa
  5. The God Who is There by Francis Schaeffer

He has a poll, where readers of his blog currently have a different top five:

  1. Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis
  2. The Resurrection of the Son of God by N.T. Wright
  3. Reasonable Faith by William Craig
  4. The Reason for God by Timothy Keller
  5. The Case for Christ by Lee Strobel

I’ve read Mere Christianity, The God Who is There, The Reason for God, and parts of The Case for Christ and Reasonable Faith, and recommend all of them. I have The Resurrection of the Son of God in my Amazon shopping cart, but am not making book purchases right now.

Grace and Peace
