More Than a Carpenter by Josh McDowell & Sean McDowell

Skeptic Josh McDowell thought Christians were out of their minds. He ridiculed and insulted them, then decided to combat them with his own thorough research to disprove the claims of Jesus Christ. To his surprise, he discovered that the evidence suggested exactly the opposite that Jesus, instead of being simply a first-century Hebrew carpenter, truly was the God he claimed to be.
How Good is Good Enough? by Andy Stanley

Many of us want to believe that our family and friends who have not confessed Christ will be accepted into heaven because they are basically "good people."

This powerful teaching on grace will bring you closer to God and will introduce your family and friends to the heart of the Christian faith. Keep one copy for yourself and give the other copies to those who are desperate for God's grace.

I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist by Norman L. Geisler & Frank Turek

The 7 Principles of an Evangelistic Life by Douglas M. Cecil

Just hearing the word 'evangelism' stirs emotions in believers and unbelievers alike. Because of this, many believers shy away from the topic altogether. Douglas Cecil believes we must bring a sense of balance into our approach to evangelism. The 7 Principles of an Evangelistic Life is not another book on evangelism methods; rather the author focuses on helping believers develop a lifestyle of evangelism that relies completely on the Holy Spirit. Evangelism is a spiritual adventure and readers will be challenged to re-think how they live it out.
Conversational Evangelism by Norman Geisler & David Geisler

This book takes so-called 'lifestyle evangelism' to it's logical conclusion, bringing the interaction that we have with unsaved friends and family into focus for us to use in helping clarify Gospel elements in a steady progression toward a complete Gospel presentation.
Norman Geisler, for years on the vanguard of the defense of the Gospel, and David Geisler, founder and President of Meekness and Truth Ministries, come together with a plan of pre-evangelism - making sure that the Gospel is understood when it is finally presented - that can be used supplementally with any accurate evangelism model.
