SAVING TRUTH

BY ABDU MURRAY. This book made my "best book I read this year" a few years ago. Murray has an excellent take on how our culture has abandoned truth and what we need to do to recover it.

FOOL'S TALK

Recovering the Art of Christian Persuasion, BY OS GUINNESS

Os Guinness wrote another winner. Combining Evangelism with Apologetics, Guinness does an artful job of laying out the process of restoring the art of Christian persuasion. I've read this book several times and continue to reap its gems.

FAULT LINES

The Social Justice Movement and Evangelicalism's Looming Catastrophe. by VODDIE BAUCHAM.

 

One of the best books I've read on the social justice movement from a Christian perspective. Baucham is clear and compelling citing numerous incidents that fly in the face of statistics proving them erroneous.

This is not just recommended, but urgent reading.

CYNICAL THEORIES

How Activist Scholarship Made Everything About Race, Gender and Identity - and Why This Harms Everybody. By HELEN PLUCKROSE and JAMES LINDSAY.

Written from a secular perspective this book confirms the harm that Critical Theory is doing to everyone - even those who support it. I found this book to be extremely informing and full of background information, too. Must read if you want to understand the underpinnings of Critical Theory.

AMUSING OURSELVES TO DEATH

Public Discourse in an Age of Show Business, by NEIL POSTMAN

If there's one book I could point to that lifted the veil on culture for me, this is it. Postman was a terrific pundit on the way video affects our lives. He spare no one, though he is a perfect gentleman when he points out how the video world turns everyone into a showman. 

His main point, however, is that video is making us dumber and he wrote this in 1985. Postman shows how reading is the best way to grow your mind and how video can make us mindless.

I recommend this book all the time. Aside from Scripture and several saintly books, this book changed my life the most. 

There are several other titles by Postman that I would say are required reading today.

TECHNOPOLY

The Surrender of Culture to Technology, by NEIL POSTMAN

There are few books that I've read that actually frightened me. This was one of them.

Here Neil Postman explains how technology takes over a culture and becomes "technopoly." Whether we acknowledge it or not, we're living in a technopoly.

TACTICS

A Game Plan For Discussing Your Christian Convictions, by GREG KOUKL.

By far, this is the best book on keeping the conversation going. More than that it is a "rule book" for the conversation. What is acceptable? What crosses the line? When is the conversation over?

One of the best parts of the book is about asking the right questions. This book makes my "must read" list.

I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH FAITH TO BE AN ATHEIST

By Dr. NORMAN L. GEISLER and Dr. FRANK TUREK.

If you want an in depth study on Classical Apologetics, ala Geisler and Turek, this is it. 

There isn't another systematic explanation of evidence for the existence of truth, God, miracles, and the reliability of Scripture that I know of. I constantly recommend this book as a way to understand the arguments against Christianity and how evidence refutes those arguments. 

This must be on your bookshelf to refer back to time and time again after you read and study it.

A QUICK SOURCE GUIDE TO CHRISTIAN APOLOGETICS

A Clear and Complete Guide. by DOUG POWELL.

Doug Powell has published a very useful guide to apologetics. As the subtitle says, it is a clear and complete guide.

I found Powell's book very helpful in articulating concepts that we find in apologetics. It is a thorough book, yet not a comprehensive one at Apologetics. What I mean that it is "thorough but not comprehensive," is that it doesn't explain everything fully. A book of this length couldn't explain everything fully, neither do I believe that Doug Powell set out to do that.
