For anyone looking for an intelligent discussion of the validity of Christianity or someone seeking a deeper understanding of the truths upon which Christianity is based, I would like to suggest the following three books:

How Now Shall We Live?
By: Charles Colson and Nancy Pearcey

From the cover notes:
“How Now Shall We Live? Will help Christians make sense of the competing worldviews that clamor for our attention and allegiance in a pluralistic society. Pulling no punches, Colson and Pearcey show that all other worldviews fail to meet the test of rational consistency or practical application in the real world. Only the Christian worldview provides a rationally sustainable way to understand the universe. Only the Christian worldview fits the real world and can be lived out consistently in every area of life.”

Modern Physics and Ancient Faith
By: Stephen M. Barr

From the cover notes:
“A considerable amount of public debate and media print has been devoted to the “war between science and religion.” In his accessible and eminently readable new book, Stephen M. Barr demonstrates that what is really at war with religion is not science itself, but a philosophy called scientific materialism. Modern Physics and Ancient Faith argues that the great discoveries of modern physics are more compatible with the central teachings of Christianity and Judaism about God, the cosmos, and the human soul than with the atheistic viewpoint of scientific materialism.”

Genesis and the Big Bang: the discovery of harmony between modern science and the Bible
By: Gerald L. Schroeder, Ph.D.

From the cover notes:
“The culmination of a physicist’s thirty-five-year journey from MIT to Jerusalem, Genesis and the Big Bang presents a compelling argument that the events of the billions of years that cosmologists say followed the Big Bang and those of the first six days described in Genesis are, in fact, one and the same – identical realities described in vastly different terms. In engaging, accessible language, Dr. Schroeder reconciles the observable facts of science with the very essence of Western religion: the biblical account of Creation.”
