The Best Books On Christian Apologetics

The Books I Picked & Why

The Atheist Who Didn't Exist Or: the Dreadful Consequences of Bad Arguments

By Andy Bannister

The Atheist Who Didn't Exist Or: the Dreadful Consequences of Bad Arguments

Why this book?

Andy Bannister has written this book in response to popular one-liners by new atheists, particularly Dawkins. Tired retorts comparing God to Santa Claus and the tooth fairy are hilariously dealt with by the author's dry British humour. I had a good couple of chuckles in this book. I particularly loved his imaginary friend who claimed he stole the Venus di Milo's arm, and also how he sarcastically puts trademark symbols on the words 'Science' and 'Reason'. Still, I think he does a good job of preventing his teasing from becoming a poo-flinging contest. Such a talented writer - loved this book!

Answering the Objections of Atheists, Agnostics, & Skeptics

By Ron Rhodes

Answering the Objections of Atheists, Agnostics, & Skeptics

Why this book?

This is a book aimed at Christians and regards arguments that sceptics tend to raise.  This was a great book. It wasn’t an easy read, or particularly well ordered, but it had a lot of meat and a few amazing nuggets.

The Reason for God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism

By Timothy Keller

The Reason for God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism

Why this book?

The first couple of chapter's deal with answers to questions by sceptics, and then it sort of branches off more philosophically. The book had some good insights that I thought were worth the time I spent on it.

The Black Prism

By Brent Weeks

The Black Prism

Why this book?

Though not a Christian series at all, the books contain religious lore that, in many ways, mirrors Christianity (especially in the later books). It contains some truly brilliant philosophical arguments that anyone interested in apologetics could appreciate.

Amplified Holy Bible

By Zondervan

Amplified Holy Bible

Why this book?

The AMP (Amplified Bible) is a word-for-word translation with additional information in brackets to help clarify the meaning of ambiguous words and difficult passages. This is also an incredibly useful study Bible, and is more convenient than cross-referencing Strong’s numbers.
