Does God Exist?
Simple explanations of common arguments for the existence of God and the deity of Jesus.

Proof of the Existence of God
A summary of four philosophical proofs of God’s existence.

The Ontological Argument
The claim that God doesn’t exist makes no more sense than the claim that four-sided triangles do. Objections to the Ontological Argument.

The First Cause Argument
From nothing, comes nothing. The universe simply cannot have popped into existence uncaused. Objections to the First Cause Argument.

The Argument from Design
The universe is exactly as it needs to be for human beings to flourish. Christianity can explain this; atheism cannot. Objections to the Argument from Design.

The Moral Argument
Morality consists of a set of authoritative commands. Only God could issue such commands. Objections to the Moral Argument.


Arguments Against the Existence of God
Attempts to prove that atheism is true.

Is Faith Just Wishful Thinking?
Is religious belief just an emotional crutch for those unable to cope with the reality of life without God?

The Problem of Evil
If God knows how to, wants to, and is able to prevent suffering, then why doesn’t he prevent it?

The Paradox of the Stone
Can God create a stone so heavy that he cannot lift it?

Religious Pluralism and Tolerance
Must we abandon the absolute truth-claims of Chrianity in order to be tolerant of those of other faiths?

Can Evolution Explain Our Origins?
Can Darwin’s theory of evolution remove the mystery from the question of human origins?


Lord, Liar, or Lunatic?
Jesus was either much less than, or much more than, a great human being.

Evidence for the Resurrection
The historical evidence surrounding the resurrection defies explanation in naturalistic terms.


Antony Flew Abandons Atheism
Atheist figurehead Antony Flew has changed his mind on the question of God’s existence, citing the argument to design as the reason.

Evangelicals and Mormons come together for a landmark event in Salt Lake City.

Nancy R Pearcey, Total Truth: Liberating Christianity from its Cultural Captivity

 

Many Christians find that their faith is compartmentalised; that they have a religious side, and a secular side. The religious side is personal, private. The secular side gets on with dealing with the world.

Nancy Pearcey’s Total Truth seeks to shatter that distinction. Heavily influenced by Francis Schaeffer, Pearcey’s goal is to present a Christian world-view that will have an impact on our day-to-day lives, and the lives of those around us. Faith should not be private; it should define who we are. There should be no division between the secular and the sacred.

This is not just a book about theory; the concluding section entitled “Living it Out” sets out a practical way of integrating the Christian way of looking at the world with a Christian way of living in it.

Alister McGrath, The Twilight of Atheism: The Rise and Fall of Disbelief in the Modern World

 

The Church is under attack. In an increasingly secular world, the influence of Christianity is steadily being eroded. It is only a matter of time before this process is completed, before reason triumphs over faith, and atheism wins. At least, that’s what we keep hearing.

In The Twilight of Atheism, Alister McGrath challenges this view. Atheism, he argues, has had its day. He sets out to chart its growth and decline, asking of the movement, “What brought it into existence? What gave it such credibility and attractiveness for so long? And why does it seem to have lost so much of its potency in recent years? Why has it faltered?”

McGrath writes as one who long-ago abandoned the sinking ship of atheism. His history of the ideology ranges from classical Greek atheism, through Voltaire, Marx, and Freud, to Richard Dawkins and Madalyn Murray O’Hair, remaining readable and accessible throughout.

Francis J Beckwith & Gregory Koukl, Relativism: Feet Firmly Planted in Mid-Air

 

Relativism is the spirit of the current age. It’s no longer enough tolerate one’s neighbours in the sense of treating them with respect; now, we are told, we must believe that their views, along with everyone else’s views, are as true as our own.

This relativist zeitgeist is both immoral and dangerous. It’s immoral because though it pays lip service to freedom it denies us all freedom of thought on the most basic level. It’s dangerous because some views are morally abhorrent and need to be condemned and opposed. Hiding behind relativism just isn’t the way to make the world a better place, and we certainly a need to make the world a better place.

This book, co-authored by Greg Koukl, a popular radio apologist and speaker who’s participated in public debates on this topic, and Frank Beckwith, a philosopher from Trinity International University, exposes relativism for what it is. The book is straightforward and readable, designed to equip normal Christians to think clearly and speak with confidence against the moral decay that surrounds us and the worldview that goes with it.
