Ben’s Recommended Books

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css_animation=”bottom-to-top” css=”.vc_custom_1623443192880{margin-bottom: 60px !important;}”]If you are a Truth-seeker investigating the claims of Christianity for yourself, these books may guide you to a greater understanding of the incredibly solid foundation on which the Christian faith rests. As a Christian, whether you are attempting to overcome an area of doubt, be a better informed parent for your children, or be a more effective witness in general, these books will help you in your journey. These are all books I have personally read and studied, and could not recommend them more highly.[/vc_column_text][info_list font_size_icon=”24″ eg_br_width=”1″][info_list_item list_title=”The Holy Bible” list_icon=”Defaults-book”]Written by 40+ authors, over 1500 years, on 3 continents, but all revolving around the story of salvation through Jesus Christ- a must read![/info_list_item][info_list_item list_title=”Mere Christianity” list_icon=”Defaults-book”]By C.S.

Ben’s Recommended Websites

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css_animation=”bottom-to-top” css=”.vc_custom_1623444077449{margin-bottom: 60px !important;}”]These reliable websites contain a plethora of apologetic information about almost every area of the Christian faith. Though I cannot vouch for all the information on each site, the endless supply of articles, videos, and podcasts, far surpasses what this smaller ministry can offer. If your questions are not answered here, they are sure to be found using the resources below.[/vc_column_text][info_list font_size_icon=”24″ eg_br_width=”1″][info_list_item list_title=”Reasonable Faith” list_icon=”Defaults-list-alt” info_list_link_apply=”title” info_list_link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.reasonablefaith.org||target:%20_blank|”]This is the ministry of Dr. William Lane Craig, a personal friend and mentor, and one of the most prolific Christian apologists of our day.
