What do you do when someone asks you a “hard question” about what you believe – or why you believe it? What about when you ask those questions yourself? Where do you turn? What books are helpful for new believers, skeptics, students, or analytical thinkers?
Fortunately, there are lots of terrific resources out there. (I did a deep review on one last week.) There are blogs, books, university degrees, speakers, and whole ministries dedicated to “apologetics.” (Definition: reasoned arguments or writings in justification of something, typically a theory or religious doctrine)
Over the years, I have read a bunch of these books. I own several. Even though I’m not really a fan of “arguing” about the Christian faith, I do enjoy reading how other people address common, honest, difficult questions.
Today’s podcast is dedicated to my six favorites. You’ve probably heard of some of them. (After all, a few of them have been around for several decades.)
