for real?

Was he or wasn’t he?  That’s the question we’ve been exploring all month.  Was Jesus who he said he was, or not?  We’ve been exploring some of the questions of our faith, wrestling with our doubts in some cases and examining the evidence.  As I’ve promised, below is a list of resources (which may grow longer over time.)  These are books that have been helpful to me through my own personal search and from which I have drawn heavily for this sermon series.  I hope it helps!

Copan, Paul.  When God Goes to Starbucks: A Guide to Everyday Apologetics.  Grand Rapids, MI: Baker, 2008.

Ortberg, John.  Know Doubt. (prev. titled Faith & Doubt).  Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan, 2008.

McDowell, Josh.  Evidence that Demands a Verdict: Historical Evidences for the Christian Faith. Vols. 1 & 2.   Nashville, TN: Thomas Nelson, 1979.

McDowell, Sean.  Apologetics for a New Generation: a biblical & culrurally relevant approach to talking about God.  Eugene, OR:  Harvest House, 2009.

Shelly, Rubel.  Prepare to Answer: A Defense of the Christian Faith.  Nashville, TN: 20th Century Christian, 1990.
