  • Interests:My wife, physics, other science, history, philosophy, music- especially Bach. I enjoy debate as a means to learning. I'm in my second year as a believer and am generally astounded by how much God has done in my life.

What are your favorite books with regard to Christianity (aside from the Bible)? I have enjoyed some CS Lewis writings a lot. Now I am curious to see what people enjoy, particularly with regards to stuff touching on theology and philosophy, biblical interpretation and the like.

1) Surprise Endings

2) God Works the Night Shift

3) The Tender Commandments.

Philip Yancey is a good author, I think.

 

Michael Card, while better known for his music, has also written some deep and insightful theological books.
