Erased from Space and Consciousness: Israel and the Depopulated Palestinian Villages of 1948 by Noga Kadman
"A land without a people for a people without a land" was a widely cited phrase associated with the movement to establish a Jewish homeland in Palestine during the 19th and 20th centuries... but it was a slogan that betrayed the facts: there were indeed people in the land... and lots of them! But they became refugees under the winking eye of the west. Kadman chronicles their erasure... not their lack of being. This book should knock the rose colored glasses off the faces of Zionists -- both Jewish and Christian.
Lee Strobel uses his skills (as an investigative journalist, as the legal editor of the Chicago Tribune and his degree from Yale [Master in the Study of Law]) to give evidence for or against the bible's veracity and Jesus' accurate history.
Kyle Idleman will turn your concept of being a fan upside down -- and rightly so! This is an easy to read book with an important message for Christians.
I trust CRI to assess the many questionable people and organizations who claim to be Christian. Their publications are scholarly but accessible, and always fair to both sides of an issue. They are an invaluable resouce for anyone who works in apologetics.
Are you ready to step outside of your eschatological indoctrinations? You should be. The Apostle John’s apocalypse is the New Testament’s most challenging piece of literature, and it deserves an objective study. Steve Gregg takes an even hand in representing the four major points of view of Revelation. This is an interesting read and a valuable library resource.

Do you ever find yourself understanding the Bible's words, but not totally "getting" what's happening? Our Western point of view can skew our understanding on many levels. Richards and O'Brien unpeel the layers of culture in this approachable work.
What does one do with the following quote by Bart Ehrman?
"Scholars differ significantly in their estimates—some say there are 200,000 variants known, some say 300,000, some say 400,000 or more! We do not know for sure because, despite impressive developments in computer technology, no one has yet been able to count them all. Perhaps, as I indicated earlier, it is best simply to leave the matter in comparative terms. There are more variations among our manuscripts than there are words in the New Testament."

This type of blather is why Christians should read Craig Blomberg's response. If we are going to talk about innerancy, lets first discuss what it is...and what it is not.

This may be the most useful site available for the Bible student. It has my highest recommendation.
Compare Bible versions, study the original languages, read commentaries... that's just the beginning.
Webb is a professional geologist who has worked in the oil business for decades... and people like this do not fudge the data. Webb is a Christian, yet he's sure that the data says that the earth is very old -- and not only 6000 years old as the Young Earth Creationists insist. But Webb knows the Bible too, and there's plenty of room for a very old earth. I agee with Webb. Read this book.
