Maybe you’re already a Christian and would like some good books to give to friends who are interested in your faith, or would like to make sure that you have rigorously thought through what you believe. Or maybe you have doubts about Christianity and objections to the claims Christians make. Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, I would highly recommend the books below.

Doesn’t religion treat women terribly?

Posted by Anne Witton on Tuesday, May 23, 2017, In : Apologetics 


One of the many reasons that I love Jesus is his radical approach to women. At a time when women were treated as possessions and had virtually no voice in public life, Jesus unequivocally saw women as equal in worth and value to men.

Luke 7: 36 - 50 records the account of Jesus eating at a Pharisee's house when a prostitute weeps over his feet, kisses them and pours perfume on them in an intimate gesture of devotion. It's hard to describe how shocked and horrified the Pharisee (an up...

Why believe? 12 Apologetics sites and apps [Part 1 of 2]

Posted by Anne Witton on Friday, May 12, 2017, In : Resources 


In Scripture we are exhorted to “Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have” (1 Peter 3: 15). Many of us will have non-Christian family and friends who ask us questions about why we believe what we believe, and we need to be prepared to answer them “with gentleness and respect.”

Many atheists, especially those who follow the teachings of Richard Dawkins and the like particularly closely, think that faith is ‘blind faith...

Gunning for God Book Recommendation

Posted by Anne Witton on Monday, September 19, 2016, In : Books 


I'm a big fan of John Lennox and really enjoyed Gunning for God: Why the New Atheists are Missing the Target: A Critique of the New Atheism. Lennox is learned, intelligent, rigorous and writes with clarity and wit. Here he tackles the seductive arguments of the likes of Dawkins, Hitchins, Dennett and Hawking and argues robustly that intelligent people can put their faith in the evidence for Christianity and enjoy a vibrant faith that is anything but 'blind'.

To give you a flavour of the book, ...
