Sharing faith in Jesus – Some books to read with friends who are searching

In the final sermon of the Go Fish series this past Sunday I shared the idea that a simple way to share faith with someone is to buy that person a book and read it with them, then meet here and there to discuss the content.  I mentioned one book, but also said I would post a blog with some other good resources.

The Case for Christ by Lee Strobel – Strobel was an atheist who set out to disprove Christianity after his wife became a believer, but his search led him to discover the truth of Christ.  This book is about his journey as a journalist, and what he discovered about Jesus.

Vintage Jesus by Mark Driscoll – Driscoll writes so that believers in Jesus and those who do not will understand and be challenged.  He answers multiple questions about the identity and work of Jesus.

The Reason for God by Tim Keller – Excellent book looking at doubts people have about God’s existence and Jesus’ mission.  We did a sermon series a couple years ago on the content of this book.

Mere Christianity by C. S. Lewis – Absolute classic on the core ideas of Christian faith, especially for skeptics and those with deep doubts.

The Case for Faith by Lee Strobel – Another book by Strobel answering questions from skeptics like, is the Bible reliable, why do innocent people suffer…

The Case for the Real Jesus by Lee Strobel – This is a good option if people’s doubts arise because they have interacted with some of the current debates about the truths of Jesus’ identity.

The Case for a Creator by Lee Strobel – Good book if the doubts are in the area of science, origins, and creation.

Jesus Among Other Gods by Ravi Zacharias – Especially for those who wonder why Christianity is true as opposed to other religions.
