Apologist Lee Strobel has graciously made ‘The Case for Christ’ available to watch on YouTube.
“A seasoned journalist chases down the biggest story in history–is there credible evidence that Jesus of Nazareth really is the Son of God?
Retracing his own spiritual journey from atheism to faith, Lee Strobel, former legal editor of the Chicago Tribune, cross-examines a dozen experts with doctorates from schools like Cambridge, Princeton, and Brandeis who are recognized authorities in their own fields. Strobel challenges them with questions like: How reliable is the New Testament? Does evidence for Jesus exist outside the Bible? Is there any reason to believe the resurrection was an actual event?“

“Derived from D. A. Carson and Douglas J. Moo’s widely adopted textbook, An Introduction to the New Testament, this digital short surveys key critical and interpretive issues in New Testament study. Attention is given to original manuscripts, interpretative traditions, biblical theology, historical criticism, postmodernism, linguistic and social-science approaches to the text, and more. Students of the New Testament will find A Quick Introduction to the New Testament to be a handy yet complete reference tool.“
“How could a loving God send people to hell? Will people have a chance after they die to believe in Jesus and go to heaven?
With a humble respect for God’s Word, Francis Chan and Preston Sprinkle address the deepest questions you have about eternal destiny. They’ve asked the same questions. Like you, sometimes they just don’t want to believe in hell. But as they write, “We cannot afford to be wrong on this issue.
This is not a book about who is saying what. It’s a book about what God says. It’s not a book about impersonal theological issues. It’s a book about people who God loves. It’s not a book about arguments, doctrine, or being right. It’s a book about the character of God.
Erasing Hell will immerse you in the truth of Scripture as, together with the authors, you find not only the truth but the courage to live it out.”
This book is Chan’s rebuttal to Rob Bell’s book Love Wins. Chan also released a video explaining his reason for writing Erasing Hell:

“The statistics are jarring. One in four women and one in six men are or will be victims of sexual assault in their lifetime. But as sobering as the statistics are, they don’t begin to speak to the darkness and grief experienced by these victims. Because sexual assault causes physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual pain, victims need clear help, hope, and healing. In Rid of My Disgrace, a couple experienced in counseling victims of sexual assault explains how the grace of God can heal the broken and restore the disgraced.
Justin and Lindsey Holcomb outline an approach for moving from destruction to redemption. While avoiding platitudes and shallow theology, Rid of My Disgrace combines biblical and theological depth with up-to-date research. This book is primarily written for those who have been assaulted (either as children or adults) but also equips family, friends, pastors, and others to care for victims in ways that are compassionate, practical, and informed. Part of the Re:Lit series.“
Steve Hays and Jason Engwer have written an e-book in response to John Loftus’ book, “The End of Christianity”. They have graciously made this project available to all and it can be downloaded in PDF format.

Logos has partnered together with Desiring God to make J.C. Ryle’s “Holiness: It’s Nature, Hindrances, Difficulties and Roots” available for free. This offer is only available for a limited time and will expire on February 6, 2012. Be sure to grab this one quickly.
“J. C. Ryle, the first Anglican bishop of Liverpool, was born in 1816 and died at the age of 84 years old in the year 1900. He was “an unusually effective preacher and communicater,” and wrote volumes of important works, including the 7-volume: Expository Thoughts on the Gospels, Christian Leaders of the Last Century, and Holiness: Its Nature, Hindrances, Difficulties and Roots.
Felt by many to be J. C Ryle’s masterwork, Holiness has been challenging and encouraging Christians toward holiness for over a century. First exploring the nature of sin, sanctification, and holiness, Ryle then draws examples from the Scriptures to argue that professing one’s faith isn’t merely enough to live the true Christian life.“
“Genocide. Terrorism. Hate crimes. In a world where racism is far from dead, is unity amidst diversities even remotely possible?
Sharing from his own experiences growing up in the segregated South, pastor John Piper thoughtfully exposes the unremitting problem of racism. Instead of turning finally to organizations, education, famous personalities, or government programs to address racial strife, Piper reveals the definitive source of hope—teaching how the good news about Jesus Christ actively undermines the sins that feed racial strife, and leads to a many-colored and many-cultured kingdom of God.”
Watch Dr. John Piper talk about racism and his personal experience growing up in the south in the Bloodlines documentary below.
“Citing positive proof from the New Testament and from non-biblical historical accounts, the authors offer irrefutable, historical evidence which proves that Jesus of Nazareth did, in fact, walk this Earth and that He was, beyond question, precisely who He was.“
