Hi Shaun,

Thank you for your kind words. In answer to your questions, I think the most dangerous myth is the two-fold denial of the Bible’s trustworthiness and thus the truth of the gospel. We wind up with a view of Scripture that sees it as nothing more than the religious musings of people long dead (believed only by those who should be), about a superstition that rises no higher than a child’s fairy tale. As for books, here’s what I suggested in the Going Deeper section of chapter one: “Here are four general books on apologetics you may find helpful: Mark Mittelberg, Choosing Your Faith (Carol Stream, IL: Tyndale, 2008), Lee Strobel, The Case for Faith (Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan, 2000), Kenneth Samples, Without a Doubt: Answering the 20 Toughest Faith Questions (Grand Rapids: Baker, 2004), and William Lane Craig, Hard Questions, Real Answers (Wheaton, IL: Crossway, 2003). For more in depth treatment of the topic see the essays in Reasons for Faith: Making a Case for the Christian Faith, edited by Norman Geisler and Chad Meister (Wheaton: Crossway, 2007). For a classic treatment with a philosophical bent see Ron Nash, Faith and Reason: Searching for a Rational Faith (Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 1988).”

Blessings in Christ,

Fred von Kamecke
