Great Christian Books

    Below are some of the best books that I've read since becoming a Christian. I give a brief summary of the contents of each book.

- In Light Of Eternity by Randy Alcorn
    This covers everything you want to know about what the Bible says about heaven. It's not a big book, so it's a quick read. I think I'm on my seventh copy, since I keep giving it away! The older I get, the more I'm interested in heaven because it's where I'll be spending eternity.

- The Islamic Invasion by Dr. Robert Morey
    This a must read for information about Islam, especially after the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks by militant muslims. Everyone should know something about the violent nature of Islam, and this is the first book I recommend. Very easy reading.

- Scientific Creationism by Henry Morris
    This is the bible of scientific creationist books. Morris did an awesome job in this book of documenting the solid evidence supporting creationism. If you only want to own one book on the subject, get this one!

- Beyond Mormonism by James Spencer
    This is the story of a man who was lured into Mormonism by two Mormon missionaries, and who later became an elder in the LDS church. The book tells of his struggles with Mormonism and the Bible and how he came to know Jesus and leave the Mormon church, despite the opposition of his Mormon wife and friends. An awesome tale.

- Gehenna by Paul Thigpen
    "Nearly seven hundred years ago the Italian poet Dante wrote The Inferno, an epic tale of the fate awaiting doomed souls in the underworld. Now the story continues......" Thomas has died and is now in hell. But he's not quite dead, and there may yet be a way out. But he'll have to travel down to the bottom of hell for any chance of escape. This is a much-improved modern-day version of Dante's Inferno. This sobering book is replete with demons with chain-saws, the "hoarders vs. the wasters", the giants of Gen. 6:4 chained in the ice, and more. It's my all-time favorite Christian novel.

- The Answers Book vol. 1-4 by Ken Ham
    Ken Ham, one of the world's foremost creationists, answers 12 of the most common questions asked of Christians today regarding Genesis and science.

-Fox's Book of Martyrs
    This book has been around for hundreds of years, and it's still a classic. Read of the faith of the early Christians as they proclaimed Jesus as Lord under persecution, torture and death. Their astounding faith in God should serve as an inspiration to us today.

-God's Smuggler by Brother Andrew
   This is the story of one man's vision of putting Bibles into the hands of believers in the countries behind the Iron Curtain during the Cold War. Read of the harrowing escapes and miraculous interventions in the life of this bold man of God.

-Pro-Life Answers To Pro-Choice Arguments by Randy Alcorn
    This is, in my opinion, the best book dealing with abortion in the bookstores  today. Alcorn takes the best arguments from the proabortion position, then he doesn't just refute their arguments, but answers them several different ways! He uses excellent examples and accounts in his rebuttals, which makes his book easy reading.

-Creation And Time by Van Bebber and Taylor
    This book is a rebuttal to the book with the same name by Dr. Hugh Ross, who is a theistic evolutionist and director of the ministry Reasons To Believe. Bebber and Taylor defend a young earth from Scripture, taking the arguments Ross uses to allegedly support evolution and shows how they, in fact, support a six-day creation. There's no way that I, as a Christian, can ever believe in evolution now after having read this book.

-A Skeleton In God's Closet by Paul Maier
    Archaeologists on a dig in Israel make a shattering discovery - Jesus' bones have apparently been found! Rock-solid evidence accompanies the discovery without any evidence of a hoax. This work of fiction by Maier is intensely riveting, and I really wondered how the story would end in the face of the supposed indisputable evidence. You'll stay up all night reading this one.

-Reasoning From The Scriptures With The Jehovah's Witnesses by Ron Rhodes
    Rhodes takes the favorite texts used by the Jehovah's Witnesses and shows how a Christian can respond to them accurately. Rhodes takes a text that they use, puts what they say about it, then he states what the Bible actually says. It's a great way to learn how to defend your faith, as well as a way to learn sound biblical doctrine.
