2926X: Mere ChristianityMere Christianity
By C.S. Lewis

C.S. Lewis sought to explain and defend the beliefs that nearly all Christians at all times hold in common. His simple yet deeply profound classic, originally delivered as a series of radio broadcasts, is a book to be thoroughly digested by believers and generously shared with skeptics.


653019: MiraclesMiracles
By C.S. Lewis

"The central miracle asserted by Christians is the Incarnation. They say that God became Man. Every other miracle prepares the way for this, or results from this." This is the key statement of Miracles, in which C.S. Lewis shows that a Christian must not only accept but rejoice in miracles as a testimony of the unique personal involvement of God in His creation. Using his characteristic lucidity and wit to develop his argument, Lewis challenges the rationalists, agnostics, and deists on their own grounds and makes out an impressive case for the irrationality of their assumptions.


1456: God in the DockGod in the Dock
By C.S. Lewis

God in the Dock is one of the best looks at the broad spectrum of Lewis' apologetic efforts, as it is a compilation of 48 essays and 12 letters on topics as varied as science and Christianity, religion, Christmas, and more. This book is divided into four sections. Section one contains essays that are considered purely theological, section two contains essays which are "semi-theological," section three is primarily ethical essays, and section four includes 12 of Lewis' letters, in the order they were published in various publications. God in the Dock stands as one of the best defenses of Christianity made by Lewis.


39491: The Gospel According to Jesus, Revised and ExpandedThe Gospel According to Jesus
By John MacArthur

What did Jesus mean when he said, "Follow me"? In this revised and expanded classic, MacArthur warns against the "easy-believism" proclaimed by many today, explains his understanding of biblical faith and works, emphasizes the high cost of discipleship, and reinforces his conviction that there is no eternal life without surrender to the Lordship of Christ.


40907: Nothing But The TruthNothing But The Truth
By John MacArthur

How would you respond to this comment: "Christianity is an unhealthy religion that browbeats people with judgment." The tendency may be to snap back. But, drawing from 1 Peter 3:15, MacArthur shows you how to stand up for your faith with gentleness, reverence, and intelligence---just as Christ wants you to do.


345190: Defending Your Faith - HardcoverDefending Your Faith
By R.C. Sproul

In the universities, media, and workplace, Christian beliefs are undermined daily---can you fight for what's right? Outlining the history and fundamentals of apologetics, Sproul explains how reason and scientific inquiry offer strong allies for defending your faith. Great for group study, it equips you for more than just winning arguments, but for changing minds!


12370P: Reason to BelieveReason to Believe
By R.C. Sproul

With his trademark passion for truth and for intellectual rigor, Sproul works through 10 common objections to Christianity. ''All religions are good, it doesn't matter what you believe.'' ''The church is full of hypocrites.'' ''The Bible contradicts itself.'' This is no collection of pat answers with a couple prooftexts; Sproul challenges the skeptic and encourages the believer.


5852X: Not a Chance: The Myth of Chance in Modern Science and CosmologyNot a Chance
By R.C. Sproul

Now you've got an answer for those who believe the world "exploded" into being billions of years ago. Respected theologian and philosopher R.C. Sproul arms you with Not a Chance: The Myth of Chance in Modern Science & Cosmology. Through lively "dialogue" with thinkers from Einstein and Hume to Bohr and Sagan, Sproul consults the law of logic, linguistic and scientific theory, and mathematical understandings to probe the evidence for a cause-effect relationship.


0449510: Classical ApologeticsClassical Apologetics
By R.C. Sproul

Examines the classical arguments for the existence of God (ontological and Thomistic arguments), discusses the philosophical issues that confront contemporary apologetics, and provides an incisive critique of presuppositional apologetics.


45523: More Than a CarpenterMore Than a Carpenter
By Josh McDowell

This classic by McDowell is still consistently one of the top titles in apologetics! McDowell gives readers thought-provoking insights into the events surrounding Christ's life and asking whether they could all be explained by coincidence. Asking the hard questions about the reliability of biblical records, psychological profiles of disciples and apostles (would they die for a lie if the stories are not true?) and whether or not Jesus can be considered simply a good man who spoke some wise words, McDowell shows the light of truth while not overwhelming the reader with too much text. Designed as a missions and evangelism tool.


42199: The New Evidence That Demands a VerdictThe New Evidence That Demands a Verdict
By Josh McDowell

The New Evidence that Demands a Verdict maintains and strengthens McDowell's original arguments for the validity of Christianity. Jam-packed with information, this book looks at why the Bible can be trusted, including its historical reliability and accuracy. McDowell explains who Jesus is, and why the New Testament record of his personality and ministry is the best and most authentic source available. He also explains how several worldviews have attempted to discredit Christianity, particularly through the methods of biblical, form, and textual criticism. He also examines several philosophical systems, including skepticism, agnosticism, and mysticism, and offers a cogent defense of the idea and reality of miracles.


42816: A Ready DefenseA Ready Defense
By Josh McDowell

Here is evidence for the Christian faith by one of its premier defenders! Topically arranged, this "best of Josh McDowell" gives you more than 60 well-reasoned arguments from creation to the virgin birth to the resurrection of Jesus and much more. Ideal for skeptics who are curious about Christianity and for Christians who want to learn how to defend their faith.


4286X: The Gagging of GodThe Gagging of God
By D.A. Carson

Is Jesus the only way to God? This clear, critically-acclaimed, scholarly response to that question affirms the deep need for the Gospel's exclusive message in today's increasingly pluralistic global community. The Gagging of God offers an in-depth look at the big picture, shows how the many ramifications of pluralism are all parts of a whole, and then provides a systematic Christian response.


1516769: Pundit's FollyPundit's Folly
By Sinclair Ferguson

The Pundit's Folly answers the question, is the pathway to personal significance and lasting satisfaction impossible to find? By means of the experiences described in the Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes (the Pundit of the book's title). It unmasks the false promises of happiness which the world offers and uncovers the dissatisfactions, longings and needs of the heart in order to point to the source of true satisfaction in Jesus Christ. Written specifically to help non-Christians, The Pundit's Folly is a tool for evangelism.


57065: Truth Unchanged UnchangingTruth Unchanged Unchanging
By Martyn Lloyd-Jones

What is man? What is wrong with the human race? Unless we answer these questions correctly, we can not hope to solve the problems in our world - problems such as crime, exploitation, greed, proverty, pollution and war. Obviously those who shape social policy today are offering the wrong answers. In this masterful apologetic for the gospel, Dr Lloyd-Jones exposes these flaws in modern thinking, especially in the "scientific approach." Jones shows decisively that the true remedy for our ills is in Jesus Christ - and Him alone.

By J.I. Packer

Drawing from many of Packer's notable shorter writings published over the past 30 years, this historic volume collects his theological insights, opinions, and reflections on Christ, the Trinity, and the Holy Spirit. Dr. Packer strongly defends these beliefs against contemporary challenges, addressing such issues as the atonement, justification, universalism, and the charismatic movement.


41199: Is Jesus the Only Way?Is Jesus the Only Way?
By Philip Graham Ryken

This small booklet is perfect for reference when witnessing or to give to someone who is seeking. Ryken handles some of the tougher questions that Christians get asked in this Postmodern society in regards to the exclusive claim that Jesus is the only way to heaven. Written in a sensitive yet direct way, this is a great introduction to the most essential apologetic issue of our times.
