I've Been Reading...
So You Don't Want to go to Church Anymore.
It's a short fiction story about a guy who gets burned by the organized church and gets back to what church is supposed to be about: relationships.
Of course! Just about every time I thought William P Young had taken his fantasy about the character of God too far, he'd bring it into proper perspective with a simple statement. In my opinion, he has a deep understanding of who God is and who we are in relationship with Him. I totally recommend this book.
What in the World is Going On?
Dr. David Jeremiah gives a down to earth presentation of Bible prophecy, relating it to the recent developments of our world.
The Case for the Real Jesus
Lee Strobel's latest book delves into issues like the reliability of the New Testament and the supposed influence of pagan religion and the hidden gospels on Christianity. He does an excellent job on these and several other related topics.
The Case for Faith
I finally read this older book by Strobel. He tackles tough questions like the problems associated with pain and suffering, and eternal punishment. I recommend both (well, all) of Lee Strobel's books, especially if you have any concerns or interest in the area of apologetics.
This is actually a multi-volume set published right here in Alberta. They have lots of pictures. In a nutshell it is the history of Christianity written simply and in a style that makes it come alive in the mind of the common reader. So far I have read volumes two and three, which covers the growth of Christianity in the Roman Empire from the end of the New Testament era to the time of Emperor Constantine. The accounts of how many Christians endured severe persecutions joyfully are amazing. I'm looking forward to reading more in this series of books.
