“Faith & Reason Made Simple: Rationally Defend What You Believe In A Culture of Skepticism” – by Rev. Rick McGough, founder of “Local Church Apologetics”; leader guide and video study package also available.

“Is Atheism Dead?” – by author and radio show host on, Eric Metaxes; book description: “in a voice that is by turns witty, muscular, and poetic, Metaxas echoes C.S. Lewis and G.K. Chesterton in cheerfully and logically making his case, along the way presenting breathtaking—and sometimes astonishing—new evidence and arguments against the idea of a Creatorless universe. Taken all together, he shows that much we have assumed about the biggest questions of human existence is in fact dramatically outdated — and is therefore in need of the most urgent reevaluation”; excellent 34-min interview with the author about the book and the big questions of life with Kevin Swanson on his “Generations” podcast (site founder’s favorite podcast); can also see 4-min newscast on “CBN News”.
