Atheist Overreach
What Atheism Can't Deliver
Christian Smith - Dec 01, 2018
Goodreads Rating
In recent years atheism has become ever more visible, acceptable, and influential. Atheist apologists have become increasingly vociferous and confident in their claims: that a morality requiring benevolence towards all and universal human rights need not be grounded in religion; that modern science disproves the existence of God; and that there is ...

Political Visions & Illusions
A Survey & Christian Critique of Contemporary Ideologies
David T. Koyzis - May 07, 2019 (first published in 2003)
Goodreads Rating
What you believe about politics matters. The decades since the Cold War, with new alignments of post–9/11 global politics and the chaos of the late 2010s, are swirling with alternative visions of political life, ranging from ethnic nationalism to individualistic liberalism.Political ideologies are not merely a matter of governmental efficacy, but a...

Definitely the best book I've read on the current state of political thinking happening among evangelicals in 2020. Evangelicals fused social thinking to political ideology giving themselves over to at least four major ideologies, none of them biblical.     source
Two DozenArguments for God
The Plantinga Project
Jerry L. Walls - Sep 04, 2018
Goodreads Rating
Thirty years ago, Alvin Plantinga gave a lecture called "Two Dozen (or so) Theistic Arguments," which served as an underground inspiration for two generations of scholars and students. In it, he proposed a number of novel and creative arguments for the existence of God which have yet to receive the attention they deserve. In Two Dozen (or so) Argum...

Why I Am Not a Secularist
William Connolly - Jun 23, 2000 (first published in 1999)
Goodreads Rating
Religion's influence in American politics is obvious in recent debates about school prayer, abortion, and homosexuality, as well as in the success of grassroots religious organizations in mobilizing voters. Many liberal secularists decry this trend, rejecting any interaction between politics and religion. But in Why I Am Not a Secularist, distingui...

The Year of Our Lord 1943
Christian Humanism in an Age of Crisis
Alan Jacobs - Aug 02, 2018
Goodreads Rating
By early 1943, it had become increasingly clear that the Allies would win the Second World War. Around the same time, it also became increasingly clear to many Christian intellectuals on both sides of the Atlantic that the soon-to-be-victorious nations were not culturally or morally prepared for their success. A war won by technological superiority...

The Tech-Wise Family
Everyday Steps for Putting Technology in Its Proper Place
Andy Crouch - Apr 18, 2017
Goodreads Rating
Making conscientious choices about technology in our families is more than just using internet filters and determining screen time limits for our children. It's about developing wisdom, character, and courage in the way we use digital media rather than accepting technology's promises of ease, instant gratification, and the world's knowledge at our ...

Disruptive Witness
Speaking Truth in a Distracted Age
Alan Noble - Jul 17, 2018
Goodreads Rating
We live in a distracted, secular age. These two trends define life in Western society today. We are increasingly addicted to habits―and devices―that distract and "buffer" us from substantive reflection and deep engagement with the world. And we live in what Canadian philosopher Charles Taylor calls "a secular age"―an age in which all beliefs are eq...

GRACE AND GLORY
Sermons Preached in Chapel at Princeton Seminary
Geerhardus Vos - Aug 31, 2007
Goodreads Rating
John Murray said of him, "Dr. Vos is, in my judgment, the most penetrating exegete it has been my privilege to know, and I believe, the most incisive exegete that has appeared in the English-speaking world in this century." The uniqueness of Vos's emphasis on the centrality of the covenantal work of Jesus Christ in history and our possession of tha...

Thinking through Creation
Genesis 1 and 2 as Tools of Cultural Critique
Christopher Watkin - Oct 31, 2017
Goodreads Rating
Reading Genesis 1 and 2, we are tempted to see only problems to solve. Yet these two chapters burst with glorious truths about God, our world, and ourselves. In fact, their foundational doctrines are among the richest sources of insight as we pursue robust, sensitive, and constructive engagement with others about contemporary culture and ideas.With...

Summer Reading Book #3 Christopher Watkin, Thinking through Creation: Gen 1-2 as Tools of Cultural Critique. This is a remarkable book, from a top flight expert in post-structuralist French philosophy-meaning he understands our current cultural context.     source
