July is here. Time to do some fun reading on some smaller sized titles. Here are six selections for summer reading from Apologetics315. Read along if you like. By the way, congratulations to Ben H., the Kindle winner from the summer drawing. Enjoy!
Correct, Not Politically Correct by Frank Turek
With the subtitle: How Same-Sex Marriage Hurts Everyone. Seems timely and appropriate. Also a small and quick read. Makes a non-religious case against same-sex marriage. Also, Cisco didn’t like it.
God and Stephen Hawking by John Lennox
Alister McGrath calls this “a brilliant response to Stephen Hawking’s Grand Design.” Discusses the multiverse, design, science and rationality. Already available in the UK.
The Philosophy of Jesus by Peter Kreeft
This pocket-sized book looks at Jesus through the eyes of a philosopher and discusses Jesus’ metaphysics, ethics, epistemology, anthropology, etc. And Kreeft is a great writer.
On Jesus by Douglas Groothuis
Right along the same lines of Kreeft’s book, this title by Groothuis covers Jesus as a philosopher along the same topcis! Perhaps an interesting comparison. And you gotta love Groothuis.
God Behaving Badly by David T. Lamb
As discussed in the author interview here, this book is a great first choice for looking into the tough questions raised by some Old Testament passages. Written in a very accessible style.
Existential Reasons for Belief in God by Clifford Williams
This one got put on hold on the reading list due to other projects — time to knock it out. This book argues that certain needs, emotions, and desires have a legitimate place in drawing people into faith in God.
What’s on your summer reading list?
