Books of the Month - November 2008
This month I've picked two excellent selections for you.
The first selection this month is "The 10 Most Common Objections to Christianity" by Alex McFarland.
So what are these ten most common objections that this book covers? Well, let's see...
1. God is not real
2. Creation is a myth
3. The Bible is not completely authentic
4. The Bible is not completely accurate
5. Jesus was just a man
6. Jesus is not the only way to heaven
7. A loving God wouldn't send people to hell
8. People are basically good
9. Christians are all hypocrites
10. A merciful God wouldn't allow suffering
If you're like me and many other people, you've struggled with some or maybe all of these questions at one time or another. Well, this book doesn't provide all of the answers and it doesn't claim to. It couldn't possibly in 253 pages. What this book does is give the foundation for answers to these questions. The answers given are biblically accurate, factually correct and existentially satisfying.

The second selection this month is "What if the Bible had Never been Written?" by D. James Kennedy. This is one of the books I'm reading now.
There is no denying that the Bible has impacted the lives of many people throughout the centuries, whether they believed it to be a purely historical book or words to live by. But the Bible, more than any other book, is also the most maligned. The authors attempt to show that the Bible was the inspiration behind almost all of the great explorers, scientists, writers, artists, politicians and educators that the world has ever known. They also attempt to show what extremes non believers will go to discredit the Bible, dismissing it as myth or folklore, even in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary.
