I have had a couple people ask me what books I have read in the past year, so I thought I would list them here. It might be useful to anyone who enjoys research, or just reading, to share my book list from the last 18 months or so. Of course this does not include my books for fun, but those are not the focus of this site/blog. And actually, I have had such a burning desire to study the issues in apologetics these books listed below were all fun to read and constitute about 80% of what I have read in the past 18 months. I know, it’s weird reading books on apologetics for fun. What is even more weird is I sold many of my UFC DVD’s so I could purchase many of the books listed below. Only UFC fans like me only can appreciate the magnitude of such a swap.

I don’t agree with everything the authors say, and some of them openly disagree with one another on various issues, but that is the beauty of exploring an issue. You come to understand it, view it from different perspectives, and then maybe share your thoughts with others.

The first list are books that I have read and would recommend to anyone wanting to explore apologetics under the assorted categories, and our current political climate. Some are really just testimonial, but have powerful messages. They are listed in no particular order, but I have placed an * by my favorites. I have also watched several DVD’s, listened to many lectures, and enjoyed several debates. I will not bother to list those here, but if anyone is interested in which ones I would recommend just ask.
