   First, recognize that reading is a bit dangerous. But, realizing that life is full of risks, we contend that not reading is even more risky. Here’s some more about each of these books. One is by an evangelical Christian philosopher, another by an Anglican Christian philosopher, and an another by a medical doctor and highly successful scientist who makes no profession of Christian faith (at least here); and whose thinking has been compared to that of Einstein’s. (These descriptions are not given in order of our list, however.)

   These authors (who are more readable than you might expect) are probably not household worlds–at least in your home.

   More Than Matter is written by an Oxford-trained professor who says, in effect, than atheistic naturalistic science hardly explains everything–even the most important, and most real, aspect of human life: human consciousness. (And that we’ve talked about several times.)

   In Biocentrism, Lanza maintains that starting with the Big Bang and the physics of particles is inadequate to explain the universe. In particular, things fall apart when one moves down to small particle physics. Instead, one should begin with biology. Lanza’s personal history of moving from poverty and abuse to a stellar reputation in science–which he shares in this book–adds an unexpected dimension to his theories. Recently, Time featured Robert Lanza as one of 100 most influential people in the world.

   In the debate with German philosopher Lüdemann, in Jesus’ resurrection: Fact or Figment?, Craig makes a spellbinding, thorough, case attacking and defending his thesis with a scholarly atheist. Issues will be discussed that you’ve probably never considered before.

  Each book is reviewed on Amazon, and is available electronically for about $9.99. And each author can be easily located. They were worth our time, and we hope some of you will find them useful.
