    King's Cross is Timothy Keller's revelatory look at the life of Christ as told in the Gospel of Mark. There have been many biographies of Jesus, but few will be as anticipated as one by Keller, the man Newsweek calls "a C. S. Lewis for the 21st century." In it, Keller shows how the story of Jesus is at once cosmic, historical, and personal, calling each of us to look anew at our relationship with God. Like Keller's other books it has tremendous crossover appeal, but it is also ideal for the faithful.

  • Who Is This Man?: The Unpredictable Impact of the Inescapable Jesus

    Jesus' impact on our world is highly unlikely, widely inescapable, largely unknown, and decidedly double-edged. It is unlikely in light of the severe limitations of his earthly life; it is inescapable because of the range of impact; it is unknown because history doesn't connect dots; and it is doubled-edged because his followers have wreaked so much havoc, often in his name. He is history's most familiar figure, yet he is the man no one knows. His impact on the world is immense and non-accidental.

    Not a wasted word or a fluffy story, every word is powerful, every aspect is compelling - he is a great thinker and has given the human race a gift in this book. Well researched, profound! I found myself repeatedly thinking, AMEN, wow, that is fresh, wow, thank you Jesus!

  • What's So Great About Christianity

    Is Christianity obsolete? Can an intelligent, educated person really believe the Bible? Or do the atheists have it right? In his new book, best-selling author Dinesh D'Souza (What's So Great about America) investigates both Christianity and atheism and their influences on culture to show why there is, indeed, something great about Christianity.

    Where does What's So Great About Christianity rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    D'Souza is well read, on point, truth oriented and well written. I was built up by the way he fashions his arguments and states his points. Do not hesitate to jump into this book!

  • Culture Making: Recovering Our Creative Calling

    Andy Crouch unleashes a stirring manifesto calling Christians to be culture makers. For too long, Christians have had an insufficient view of culture and have waged misguided "culture wars." But we must reclaim the cultural mandate to be the creative cultivators that God designed us to be. Culture is what we make of the world, both in creating cultural artifacts as well as in making sense of the world around us. By making chairs and omelets, languages and laws, we participate in the good work of culture making.

  • The Rage Against God: How Atheism Led Me to Faith

    Partly autobiographical, partly historical, The Rage Against God, written by Peter Hitchens, brother of prominent atheist Christopher Hitchens, assails several of the favorite arguments of the anti-God battalions and makes the case against fashionable atheism.

    Story
    If you could sum up The Rage Against God in three words, what would they be?

    I recommend this book to anyone trying to understand, really understand, the roots of the atheist movement. The book is structured very linear, in that, Peter tells his story from childhood to the present. The meat of the book really hits late in the book, but persevere because his closing points are POWERFUL given the historical vantage point he builds. It is not an easy read. So don't pick it up if you are looking for a quaint little explanation. Read the book if you seek a deeper answer and perspective on anit-god agendas and where they come from. Excellent book Peter - thank you for your humble account and offering on this raging topic.
