Great Reads…

In our attempt to share some good reads, interesting books, and insightful publications, this post will be constantly (hopefully) updated to include a list of books we’ve read and other writings that we recommend. For specific reviews or thoughts on individual books, search the posts.  We have read nearly all of the books listed here and now form part of our personal libraries.  We always state that the intelligent and reasonable thing to do is to inform oneself and also explore opposing views, therefore you will also see listed books at the end of this list on Christian Apologetics.  Happy reading!
