Excellent Next Step Books

A Search for the Spiritual
James White

One of the best intro books around! This takes a look at what real Christianity is all about, answers common questions, and separates the “mess-ups” you may have experienced in churches you have attended from what Jesus intends for how church should work.

Who Is This Man?
John Ortberg
An explanation of Jesus’ influence over history bringing inspiration to what has happened in art, science, government, medicine, and education; he has taught humans about dignity, compassion, forgiveness, and hope.

My First Thirty Quiet Times 
Ty Salzgiver
An oldie, but a goodie. An excellent resource for those who want to begin exploring the foundational truths of the Christian faith a small step at a time.

The Case for Christ 
Lee Strobel
If you are a skeptic, questioner, science-guy, and thinker like me, you have to read this book!  It is written by a former atheist and Chicago Tribune journalist who set out to disprove Jesus and the Bible. After 2 years of extensive research he found it took more faith NOT to believe than to believe.

Mere Christianity
C.S. Lewis
A classic introduction to Christianity for the skeptical deep thinkers. This is the book that convinced my brainy friend Todd Kowalski, so you know it is powerful!
