Letters From a Skeptic
by Gregory and Edward Boyd
This is an excellent book for honest, hard-hitting questions
and answers. Ed Boyd, the atheist father of Christian scholar Gregory
Boyd, poses most of the toughest questions commonly asked about Christianity,
and pulls no punches. His son's answers, while not perfect, are as
good as anything I could come up with.
You can pick this up at Amazon, and probably any other large
by C.S. Lewis
He's smart, that's all I have to say. Really smart.
He basically takes a logical path from observing human behavior and reasons
out why it makes sense to believe in God. His reasons are pretty
clever and thought-provoking, and he speaks in a way that makes sense.
Again, I think you can pick this up almost anywhere.
Who Moved the Stone?
by Frank Morison
Frank Morison set out to write a book disproving the Resurrection
of Jesus, and in his researches of the historical facts, found that the
evidence supported the Resurrection. And now we have this book. For those
of you that are nit-picky, this book is very detailed. For those of you
that are not, you may find it slow reading.
This book is available at most large booksellers.

The Christian Thinktank
Great site, especially for
those who prefer more detailed and researched and philosophical answers, compared to my off-the-cuff
reasoning. Insights into daily life also top-notch. Don't be turned off by the simple page design. =)
Stand to Reason
I really like what I've seen of this site so far. There are a lot of radio transcripts of this
one guy's show. Most if it is directed toward Christians who want to know how they can answer
questions that others bring up. Very logical and understandable.
Answers in Action
A good site with attempts to address current and relevant issues such as urban
legends, Halloween, etc. Also some material on cults.
Christian Answers Network
So... slow... to... load... but there are good (if brief) answers here
on many subjects, especially science-related questions.
