Exploring Faith

Recommended Reading

All of us have questions, and there are many ways to explore them. If you’re the kind of person who loves to read in search of answers, then here are our top five recommended books to get you started:

The Reason for God – Timothy Keller

The first half of this book explores a number of objections that people often have to the Christian faith, while the second unpacks some reasons why Christianity is plausible. A great place to start exploring.

Making Sense of God – Timothy Keller

This book addresses those who feel that religious faith has nothing to offer in a sceptical age. Keller makes the case that religion has a vital role to play in meeting the needs all of us have – for meaning, satisfaction, freedom, identity, justice and hope – in ways that no other philosophy can. It can be challenging in places, but is well worth the effort.

If God, Then What? – Andrew Wilson

This is a witty, creative, engaging book, in which the author ‘wonders aloud’ about ten key questions, addressing issues like the nature of knowledge, the origins of the universe, the possibility of the miraculous and the problem of suffering.

Mere Christianity – C.S. Lewis

This book is a classic, by a brilliant and well-known author. It explores many of the main beliefs of Christianity, and shows why they’re powerful and relevant today. It was written during the Second World War, so some of the references are a little dated, and it requires a bit of work to follow, but it’s highly recommended.

Simply Jesus – Tom Wright

At the heart of the Christian faith is the person of Jesus. You cannot understand the uniqueness of Christianity without understanding something about who he was, what he taught, and the meaning of his life, death and resurrection. This is a great little book from one of the world’s leading theologians, seeking to answer each of these questions.

Hunger

Liam Thatcher 3rd February 2019
