Book Recommendations

For those looking for more information about Jesus, the gospel and the claims of the Bible:

Basic Christianity — John Stott
Who was Jesus? Why was he crucified? Did he really rise from the dead? We need answers to these key questions in order to understand the basics of Christianity. John Stott offers a clear and full explanation, showing what it means to be a Christian today.
The Case for Christ — Lee Strobel
Using the dramatic scenario of an investigative journalist pursuing his story and leads, Strobel uses his experience as a reporter for the Chicago Tribune to interview experts about the evidence for Christ from the fields of science, philosophy, and history.
Vintage Jesus — Mark Driscoll
Bruce Ware says in his endorsement, “Vintage Jesus offers a fresh, engaging, and insightful discussion of some of the oldest and most crucial truths about Jesus Christ that constitute the very core of the gospel itself.”
Real Life Jesus — Mike Cain
Mike Cain unpacks Jesus’ claims in John’s Gospel and shows us why they cannot be ignored: sin, forgiveness and restoration affect us personally. With humour, originality, passion and sensitivity, Mike asks us to look again at Jesus: the real-life version, not the caricature.
How Good is Good Enough? — Andy Stanley
Surely there’s more than one way to get to heaven? Andy Stanley addresses this popular belief, but believing that all good people go to heaven raises major problems. Readers will find out why Jesus taught that goodness is not even a requirement to enter heaven. Andy Stanley leads believers and skeptics alike to a grateful awareness of God’s enormous grace and mercy.
Mere Christianity – C.S. Lewis
The late C.S. Lewis, Oxford professor, scholar, author, and Christian apologist, presents the listener with a solid case for orthodox Christianity.
Reason for God — Tim Keller
Pastor of an inner-city church in New York City, Timothy Keller has compiled a list of the most frequently voiced ‘doubts’ sceptics bring to his church, as well as the most important reasons for faith. In this book, Keller uses literature, philosophy, real-life conversations, and reasoning to explain how faith in a Christian God is a soundly rational belief, held by thoughtful people of intellectual integrity with a deep compassion for those who truly want to know the truth.
Evidence That Demands a Verdict — Josh McDowell
Is the Bible historically reliable? Is there credible evidence of Christ’s claim to be God? Will Christianity stand up to twenty-first century critics? Josh McDowell makes a strong defence of the Christian faith as well as answering new questions posed by today’s culture.
