Светлана Where's George MacDonald at?


message 2: by Dwight (new)

Dwight Davis I think calling this a list of books for "thinking" Christians may be a bit of a stretch. Most of these books are the opposite of what thinking Christians read.

I agree with you I don't like any of the books on this list at all

Which of these books have you read and do not like at all, Laura? Why?


message 5: by Smittybox (new)

Smittybox If Rob Bell can make it into the "Thinking" Christian list, then we need to think harder.


Luetricia E Gaston So "thinking Christians" don't read C.S. Lewis or William Lane Craig? Wow!

I can't imagine that either of you have read any of these books with the statements made. Although all may not be on my favorites list there are many powerful thought provoking books.


message 8: by Bobby (new)

Bobby Goldesberry The Pursuit of Holiness If you are truly seeking a relationship with God this book is a powerful read.


message 9: by Isaac (last edited Aug 21, 2016 07:26AM) (new)

Isaac Low The Almost Christian Discovered will get you thinking about yourself
