    Finished:

    Erasing Hell: What God Said About Eternity, and the Things We've Made Up, Francis Chan and Preston Sprinkle

    The Four Loves, C.S. Lewis

    God's Not Dead, Rice Broocks

    Irreligion: A Mathematician Explains Why the Arguments For God Just Don't Add Up, John Allen Paulos (This one was pretty bad. I had never heard of the author but the title intrigued me, so I got it. The author should have read a few books before writing one.)

    The Complete Bible Answer Book, Hank Hanegraaf

    The Everlasting Man, G. K. Chesterton (I ended up skipping this one only 5% in. I just could not follow his train of thought. Maybe I'd do better with a print copy.)

    Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus, Nabeel Qureshi


    Right now I am catching up on the Naked Bible podcast, and then I'll pick up where I've left off on my book list.

    I want something good to die for to make it beautiful to live.

    Justo Gonzalez - The Story of Christianity (volume 1)

    Once I get paid I want to buy Michael Heiser's new book (can't remember the title offhand)

    Interesting. As a side note, every time I see his name, I can't help but wonder what his position is on baptism.

    I have Kindle copies of his fiction books, plus The Unseen Realm and Reversing Hermon. I need audiobook versions or I'll never get around to reading them.

    I've read both volumes of this work, and I was rather underwhelmed. It's written very much on a popular level, with few supporting footnotes or references.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist

    Both volumes were used in my History of Christianity classes. I have a feeling Gonzalez's targeted audience are Bible College students or Christians wanting a layman's perspective of Theology.
