On this page, You can find info about interesting books that can better-inform your faith. Also, from time to time, I will excerpt portions of some of the books I have published, in addition to some unpublished materials.
"One Minute After You Die," by Erwin W. Lutzer.. Outstanding! Every Christian should read this, and pass it on.
"Debt-Proof Living; How to Get Out of Debt & Stay That Way," by Mary Hunt.. quick read, solid basic understanding, many helpful pieces of advice and good financial help. Highly recommended.
"The Long March,How the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s Changed America," by Roger Kimball.. An excellent explanation of how the progressive movement captured our schools, our media, our entertainment industry, and even our government. Should be read by all of us.
Any book by David Roper. Great spiritual insights, excellent writing. Here are a few:
Jacob: The Man God Uses; The God Who Walks Beside Us; Out of the Ordinary; Growing Slowly Wise.
"Fractured Fellowships," A critique of today's Evangelical Churches." Worth reading, even though I wrote it.
"The Conquering Tide: War in the Pacific Islands, 1942-44," by Ian W. Toll. An outstanding, very readable but lengthy (542 pages, plus notes) book on this vital part of the history of WW2. Covers this almost-forgotten war in great detail, and is well-worth the time to read it. My father was in the Russell Islands and Guadalcanal in that war, so I have a very personal interest in it.
"Jude the Obscure," by Thomas Hardy. A dark novel by Hardy, focused in mid-1800's England. Dark, because it expresses disillusion with the Church of England and Victorian Christian values. But, it is quite interesting and classic reading, and conveys insights into daily living in those days. It's a classic of some 400 pages, but good reading. I found its criticisms of the morals and hypocritical values of that time helpful in understanding something of the rebellions today against the organized church. Hardy was vilified by Englishmen for this book, and ceased writing novels after that.
"A Pathway to Nowhere?," by William J. Allen..Another shameful piece of self-promotion, but I think it's pretty good. A challenge to Christian thinking about Darwinism and the Bible, forcing Christians and non-Christians alike to face the implications of whatever they believe.
"Darwinism: A Dance of Deception" Written by me before my "Pathway" book. Full of arguments vs. the "clever myth" of Darwinism and Evolutionary Hypothesis.
"Revelation Unleashed," A study booklet to remove the confusion over the book of Revelation. Part of my series "Bible Companion"
"Great Society," Amity Shlaes, A great book on the history and economics of the 1960's and beyond. Great insight for how we got where we are today.
"The Spy & The Traitor, " Ben Macintyre, a great read about Gordievsky and Richard Ames; two very different spies. Factual.
