The Reason for God by Timothy Keller
Rate this book
Clear rating
I like Keller, but he so often tends to pull punches when a blunt blow to the face is exactly what's needed. If you're looking for a popular apologetic approach, Keller has definitely provided it with this book. Lot's of great anecdotal stories, too.

1 Peter by Wayne A. Grudem
Rate this book
Clear rating
Not one of the better commentaries on First Peter. Grudem takes some odd positions on some of the passages. I especially think his baptistic theology got in the way.
