Good Evangelical Works


#1

Hey, could someone please suggest to me some really good works on evangelical apologetics? Or even a book that explains general evangelical concepts held by most evangelicals? I’ve been reading a lot of Catholic apologetics, Church Fathers, etc., but I don’t really have a clear idea as to what evangelicals believe and how they support those beliefs. It seems to me that books I’ve read by Karl Keating and Currie deal mostly with fundamentalist Christians. I’m more interested in mainline evangelism–Methodism, Lutheranism, Presbyterianism, etc. I know that there are many differences even among these churches; but I also realize that they share similiar ideas about sola fide, sola scriptura, icons, canon, etc.

Please don’t think me a heretic. I simply want to understand the other side to better understand my own. :yup:

Hank Hanagraff has a good site at The Christian Research Institute. It is about as thorough as you will find regarding Evangelical Apologetics. Hank is also very charitable (in as much as it is possible) regarding Catholics. He finds Catholicism a flawed religion (obviously), but he abides by the principle “Hate the sin, love the sinner”.

One of the classics is Josh McDowell’s Evidence that Demands a Verdict.
