Suggested Reads

Mere Christianity - C.S. Lewis

This is a “must read” for everyone interested in the existence of God.  It is one of the best Christian apologies ever written.  C.S. Lewis was one of the greatest minds of the 20th Century and a professor of English literature at both Oxford and Cambridge Universities.  At age 15, he rejected his Christian upbringing to become an avowed atheist.  However, at age 33, logic led him back to Christ.    


The God of All Comfort - Hannah Whitehall Smith

In this classic work, Hannah Whitall Smith not only explains how faith in God leads to comfort and joy that cannot be found elsewhere, but she also shows that life without Christ is little more than doubt, fear, and anxiety.       


The Pilgrim's Progress - John Bunyan

The Pilgrim’s Progress was published in 1678.  For centuries, this allegory of the Christian Life was the most popular and most published book other than the Bible.



The Book of Martyrs, by John Foxe

Published in 1563, this important account of Christian persecutions in England and others from earlier centuries who were deemed to be forerunners of the Protestant Reformation.



The History of The Waldenses - by J. A. Wylie

This, details the conflicts and martyrdoms of the Waldenses during the Middle Ages in the French Alps.
