The Fundamentals: A Testimony to the Truth
R. A. Torrey, A. C. Dixon
Description: By the turn of the 20th century, new "modern" and liberal teachings (such as Evolution, Higher Criticism, rejection of the reliability of the Bible and rejection of the deity of Christ) had begun to have a serious influence on American churches, provoking debate across the country. In 1909, two Christian laymen, oil magnates Lyman and Milton Stewart, set aside money for the publication of a group of articles, written by well-known orthodox Protestant scholars, spelling out the fundamentals (or essential doctrines for salvation) of the Christian faith...These articles defend each of the essential doctrines then perceived to be under attack, and cover such things as the inspiration of Scripture, the virgin birth, deity and substitutionary atonement of Christ, and a host of others.

Systematic Theology: Volume 1

Who Is God?
Dr. J. Vernon McGee
Description: Dr. J. Vernon McGee explores the question Who is God? with both reason and reverence in this thoroughly biblical look at the nature and character of God. Never offering pat answers, he addresses the hard questions asked by both believers and nonbelievers without diminishing the mystery and majesty of the God of the universe.  This is hands down the best book on the nature of God I have ever read.

True for You, But Not for Me
Paul Copan
Description: In "True for You, But Not for Me," Paul Copan deals with some of the common slogans that Christians commonly hear but are often unable to intelligently answer: "That's true for you but not for me," "You shouldn't judge others," "Who are you to impose your morality on others?" or "Christians are intolerant of others." This book is a response to the corrosive influences of relativism and religious pluralism, which are challenges that believers will increasingly face. It helps the reader to probe the loaded assumptions behind these slogans.

Who Moved the Stone?
Dr. Frank Morison

The New Evidence That Demands A Verdict
Josh McDowell
Description: Bestselling author and Christian apologist Josh McDowell hopes The New Evidence That Demands a Verdict will further document historical evidence of the Christian faith.  As such, it is a straightforward compilation of notes prepared for his lecture series, "Christianity: Hoax or History?"  The entire book (over 750 pages) is laid out in outline form, which makes it easier for researchers, scholars, and students to access.  As a result, this is not reflective fireside reading.  Rather, it is a tool for locating supporting "evidence" whenever the need arises.

Christianity and Liberalism
J. Gresham Machen

Jesus Among Other Gods
Ravi Zacharias
Description: "The reality is that if religion is to be treated with intellectual respect, then it must stand the test of truth, regardless of the mood of the day. This book is a defense of the uniqueness of the Christian message." Thus begins Ravi's most important work to date in which he contrasts the truth of Jesus Christ with the teachings of Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism.

Deliver Us From Evil
Ravi Zacharias

Can Man Live Without God?
Ravi Zacharias
Description: Ravi Zacharias speaks to the college students and the intellectual and international leaders of today.

Catholicism:


The Gospel According to Rome
James G. McCarthy
Description: Written from a perspective of a former Roman Catholic, and endorsed by those who have been involved with the church (priests,nuns, ect.), McCarthy leaves few stones unturned.  Though many Catholics today are trying to change things, the fact remains that the Pope is still the boss, vicar, and head of a false church.  Martin Luther tried to change it in the sixteenth century, but as he found, the only way for a true Christian to respond to the Papacy is to GET OUT, and find a Bible Believing church.

Geese in their Hoods: Selected Writings on Roman Catholicism
Charles Haddon Spurgeon, Timothy F. Kauffman (Editor),
Description: How refreshing to see in print a wonderful compilation of Spurgeon's comments on the Church of Rome.  Of course, Spurgeon lived in a time when the horrors inflicted upon Protestants by Rome were still a fresh part of collective memory.  The writings in this volume serve to remind us that ideas have consequences, and the threat to peace and civil society from the whitewashed tombs of Rome are just as real in our day as in Spurgeon's.

Description: What does the Catholic Church teach concerning salvation and justification? What are sacraments and how do they function in the life of Catholics? Learn the facts about what Roman Catholicism teaches and how it compares to Protestantism.

New Foxes Book of Martyrs
John Foxe
Description: Whenever someone opens this book, they are grabbing a shovel, and with each passing chapter exhuming a new skeleton. The Church of Rome would be very pleased if these bones would remain peacefully buried in their churchyard caskets, but alas, what was done in the darkness is now revealed in the light.

No true Christian can fully ignore the brutality, the racks, the searing fires, the strangulations, thumbscrews, beheadings, spearings, and crucifixions that the early Christian martyrs endured for the sake of spreading the Gospel seed.

Description: Perhaps the only true rival to Matthew Henry! Charles Spurgeon said, "If I must have only one commentary, and had read Matthew Henry as I have, I do not know but what I should choose Poole. He is a very prudent and judicious commentator . . . not so pithy and witty by far as Matthew Henry, but he is perhaps more accurate, less a commentator, and more an expositor."

Famine In The Land
Steven J. Lawson
Description: As the church is called upon to meet the unique needs of the emerging post-modern culture, the pressure to create bottom line results has led many ministries to sacrifice the centrality of biblical preaching on the altar of human pragmatism.  Many churches today have traded the pulpit for a stage -- a venue for church-growth techniques and vaudeville-like pageantries.  The result is a malnourished community starved for truth. Spiritual famine has hit the land.

Hard to Believe

The Total Money Makeover: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness
Dave Ramsey
Description: Radio talk-show host and bestselling author Ramsey (Financial Peace) is less a financial analyst and more of a preacher, which explains both his popularity and the appeal of this book, which just might gain a wide audience. The bedrock of his system is simple: work hard, pay what you owe and stay out of debt. His main commandment is "Pay cash." He first exhorts the reader to take "baby steps," which are designed to build on each other: first, save $1,000 as an emergency fund; then, pay off all debts from smallest to largest; save a larger three-to-six-month emergency fund; finally, start to save for college and pay off your home mortgage. Ramsey understands the difficulty in putting these steps into action, and therefore packs his book with personal testimonials from everyday people who have used his system and have become debt free, with obvious struggles.

Forgotten Spurgeon
Iain Hamish Murray
Description: This book seeks to throw light on the reasons which have given rise to the superficial image of Spurgeon as a genial Victorian pulpiteer, a kind of grandfather of modern evangelicalism.

Spurgeon Vs Hyper Calvinism: The Battle for Gospel Preaching
Iain Hamish Murray
Description: In this book, Murray gives us the historical account of the legendary prince of preachers, Charles Haddon Spurgeon against extreme Calvinist who saw no need to preach the gospel to all men since only the elect would be saved and that by God's sovereign choice. While Spurgeon agreed that God predestined men to salvation he also believed that the gospel was to be preached to all men, allowing the Holy Spirit to draw men to Christ, and that it was through the medium of preaching that men are saved (1 Cor. 1:18-25).

Martyn Lloyd-Jones and an exhaustive index of Scripture.

Old Paths
J. C. Ryle
Description: It was the prophet Jeremiah who first used the expression 'old paths' and assured those who followed them that they would find 'rest for their souls' Jeremiah 6:16.  J. C. Ryle was of the same conviction and wrote: 'The longer I live the more I am convinced that the world needs no new Gospel, as some profess to think.  I am thoroughly persuaded that the world needs nothing but bold, full, unflinching teaching of the 'old paths.'

Evangelicalism Divided: A Record of Crucial Change in the Years 1950 to 2000
Iain Hamish Murray, Ian H. Murray
Description: Iain Murray's history of the change within evangelicalism over the last 50 years is both impressive and frightening.  He shows how decisions by some noted evangelical leaders in Britain and the U.S. for the sake of "unity" or "results" have compromised the church and watered down the message of the Gospel.  This helps us see why so many claim to be beleivers in Christ, and yet there is so little impact on lives and on our culture.

New Testament Teaching on Tongues: A Biblical and Historical Survey
Merrill F. Unger

New Foxes Book of Martyrs
John Foxe
Description: Whenever someone opens this book, they are grabbing a shovel, and with each passing chapter exhuming a new skeleton. The Church of Rome would be very pleased if these bones would remain peacefully buried in their churchyard caskets, but alas, what was done in the darkness is now revealed in the light.
No true Christian can fully ignore the brutality, the racks, the searing fires, the strangulations, thumbscrews, beheadings, spearings, and crucifixions that the early Christian martyrs endured for the sake of spreading the Gospel seed.
Every Christian should read the gruesome stories beginning with stoning of Steven and continuing on into the ages of the Protestant reformation and hideous inquisitions devised by Satan to "purge" the fruit of Jesus Christ from this world.
Every born-again believer in Christ should know the story of William Tyndale, and the price he paid so the world could have an English New Testament.

Fireproof

A still boyish-looking Kirk Cameron (Growing Pains) stars as Caleb Holt, a mercurial-tempered firefighter whose marriage is on the rocks. He clearly enjoys his status as a hero, but it comes at the expense of his marriage. His wife Catherine (Erin Bethea) is tired of the distance and wants him to make more of an effort at home, rather than surf porn on the Internet and hoard his earnings toward his dream fishing boat instead of helping out her disabled mother.

Jesus
Description: "This film is taken right from the book of Luke which many believe to be the book of the Bible that gives the most complete and accurate picture of Jesus' life. If you watch the movie with a Bible open to Luke you'll be able to follow right along. Brian Deacon plays the most believable Jesus (other than Robert Powell in the 1977 mini-series "Jesus of Nazareth) in any film, especially those done recently. The only drawback to this film is that it is quite wordy and at times moves slowly. The crucifiction scenes, however, are very, very powerful."
