Two years ago we posted, “Christmas wish list in Presuppositional Christian Apologetics” followed by last year’s “Christmas Gift Book Lists on Christian Worldview and Apologetics Discipleship 2011.” I still recommend those books as great Christmas gift books for Christians to grow in their discipleship of having a solid worldview and apologetics so what follows here are other books I would add to this list!
Stay tune for the next couple of weeks on this blog as I add book reviews of these books.
Hands down the best book I read this year–think of it as a Christian theology of reading–that’s also practical and insightful. I find that it can be an uphill battle to cultivate Christians to read deeply. Discipleship of a believer’s in a Christian worldview would be hard to implement if someone’s not reading or do not actively understand how to read, so this book is pretty foundational for everything else that follows. My review of it can be found here.
2.) Who Gets to narrate our world?
I like how this book takes “worldview” and understand it as a metanarrative. I review this book here.
3.) The Grand Demonstration
Takes the “Ex Lex” approach to the problem of evil, though it does not come out and call it that. I think this is the Christian solution to the problem of evil in light of the realities of Reformed Theology. My recommendation and review of it can be found here.
4.) If there’s a God, Why are There Atheist?
In essence, a biblical theology of unbelief is presented in this work, my review of it can be found here.
5.) Hollywood Worldview
A good introduction to Christian worldview discernment when it comes to film. My review found here.
6.) Meaning at the Movies
This was the best Christian film analysis book I’ve read thus far. Review can be found here.
7.) Art and the Bible
A book consisting of two famous essay by Francis Schaeffer on a Christian view of art.
8.) Presuppositional Apologetics Examines Mormonism
A unique book that applies Presuppositional apologetics to the cult of Mormonism. My review is available here.
9.) Life Beyond the Sun
The subtitle explains this well: An Introduction to Worldview & Philosophy Through the Lens of Ecclesiastes. Review might be delayed as I just got myself this book for “Christmas.”
10.) Inerrancy and Worldview
Takes the defense of inerrancy at a whole new level of worldview analysis.
