Against the Flow
Daniel's story is one of extraordinary faith in God lived out at the pinnacle of executive power. It tells of four teenage friends, born in the tiny state of Judah about 26 centuries ago, but captured by Nebuchadnezzar, emperor of Babylon. Daniel describes how they eventually rose to the top echelons of administration. |
Daniel and his friends did not simply maintain their private devotion to God; they maintained a high-profile witness in a pluralistic society antagonistic to their faith. That is why their story has such a powerful message for us today.More Info...
Gunning for God
Atheism is on the march in the western world, and its enemy is God. Religion, the 'New Atheists@ claim, 'is dangerous', it 'kills' or 'poisons everything'. And if religion is the problem with the world, their answer is simple: get rid of it.|
But are things really so straightforward? Tackling the likes of Richard Dawkins, Stephen Hawking, Christopher Hitchens, and Daniel Dennett head on, John Lennox highlights the fallacies in their approach, arguing that their irrational and unscientific methodology leaves them guilty of some obstinate foolishness of which they accuse dogmatic religious folks.
Erudite and wide-ranging, Gunning for God packs some debilitating punches. It also puts forward new ideas about the nature of God and Christianity that will give the New Atheists' best friends and worst enemies alike some stimulating food for though.More Info...
The Reason for God
This book is a powerful apologetic for the Christian faith, written for believers and sceptics alike. It's thoroughly biblical, but also references a wide range of sources from fiction, philosophers and artists. The first part addresses the most common arguments against Christianity, and the second examines seven reasons for believing in Christianity and ends with the gospel message. This book is a great resource for believers for answering questions and criticism, and I have much more confidence since reading it. This is also the book to give to sceptical, seeking friends, as it respectfully challenges their beliefs and makes reasonable arguments for the Christian faith in an engaging and gracious manner. I highly recommend it!

God's Undertaker (Has Science buried God?)
Have the all-embracing explanations of modern science squeezed God into a corner, killed him, and buried him? Is atheism the only intellectually tenable position? Holding senior appointments in Mathematics and in Mathematics and the Philosophy of Science at Oxford University, the author contributes evidence-based arguments to the debates about the origins of the universe and its physical laws, the origin of complex biological design, and the purpose of mankind. |
