10 Best Christian Books Of 2014

By: Curtis Wayne 0 Comments   12/6/2014

Here are my top 10 Christian book picks for 2014.  This was a big year, with some great books addressing some of the major issues of the day.

In case you missed my picks last year, you can check them out here.

I chose these books because they speak to the leading arguments against the knowledge of Jesus Christ (2 Cor 10:5). 

My theme this year is that we cannot allow the culture to turn us away from the love of the truth.  Truth is essential.  And it is constantly under attack, censored and hidden, so that we would grow weary in our pursuit of it.  And in order to remain in the truth, we must have a love for the truth that is greater. The truth is that Jesus is the Son of God and he is going to return just as he promised he would.    

“They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.” - 2 Thessalonians 2:10

Let us be glad together that it is still legal to publish, purchase and read books like these. The day is approaching when the culture will no longer tolerate books like these, so get them while you can.

Jesus on trail: A lawyer affirms the truth of the gospel

Limbaugh artfully tells his journey from skepticism about Christ to skepticism about skepticism and ultimately to trust in Christ. David Limbaugh tells his story of how he let his friend Steve know that he had doubts about Christianity. Steve responded with grace and evidence that shows that Christ is who he said he was. David addresses apparent paradoxes in the Bible, including the issue of pain and suffering in this world and its root cause. He shows how scientific evidence is in line with the view that God created the universe and how atheist scientists’ commitment to materialism force them to deny the facts.

Who killed the American Family?

Without the family as the foundation of the community, there is no hope for sustaining America. The wreckage of the American family leaves us with the inability to have limited government because government steps in to perform tasks formerly done by the nuclear family. This is an amazing truthful journey into the history of the American Family and how it was misshaped and distorted by feminist, liberalism the so called politically correct. If you didn’t have a father or a mother, this book explains why and who is responsible for destroying your family.

Six Days: The Age of the Earth and the Decline of the Church

Ken Ham lays out the entire argument for a 24-hour six day creation week. Explaining why the science behind the millions of year/evolution idea falls short, yet much of the church has put their faith in it. On top of that, the secular culture has convinced the church that it does not matter anyway – but it does matter. Ken points out how embracing the ideas of millions of years/evolution destroys the very need for a savior and the gospel has no meaning. This is why this book is important.

America: Imagine a World without Her

Dinesh D'Souza builds a formidable defense of America's traditional values and debunks the progressive arguments that America is a force for inequality and injustice needing to be reformed by an even expanding government. America was built on Christian values, the greatest values in the world. Those values have brought the greatest accomplishment that the world has ever seen, like the first nation to make the legal argument to abolish slavery. America has also increased the wealth of the world unmatched by any nation in history, pulling billions out of poverty. All this because America believed in the truth and put God’s commands as its foundation.

The Case for Christianity Answer Book

Famous for his “Case for Christ” book, Lee Strobel has done it again. This book covers 60 challenging questions ranging from science, suffering and the Bible which engage the deep truths of the historic Christian faith in an easy to understand way. And like Strobel the context is applicable both to a person who is not a follower of Christ (Strobel was an avowed atheist well into his adult life) or for a believer wanting to grow deeper in the truthfulness of Christianity. The answers to challenging question are useful for various conversations with family, friends, neighbors, students or co-workers. This year Lee also published the book “The Case for the Real Jesus: A Journalist Investigates Current Attacks on the Identity of Christ”

Making David into Goliath: How the world turned Against Israel

Israel is important for everyone watching the prophecies related to Israel unfold. Israel has become the center of world conflict, just a predicted. Although Americans have remained constant in their sympathy for the Jewish state, most of the rest of the world hates Israel. What caused this remarkable turnabout? Making David into Goliath traces the process by which material pressures and intellectual fashions reshaped world opinion of Israel. Josh Muravchik's book couldn't come at a more critical time. Once again, Israel finds itself portrayed as the aggressor as rockets fired by Hamas target Israelis daily.

Same-Sex Marriage: A Thoughtful Approach to God's Design for Marriage

This is without doubt the most defining dispute between Christianity and secular culture today. Christian, you will face this challenge. Undoubtedly you already have. You will face it whether you are prepared for it or not. Your readiness for it will determine your response and your outcome. Your best response requires right attitudes toward God, toward truth, and toward fellow human beings. It requires being equipped with knowledge. This book is also a brief guide to rebuilding a culture of marriage in America.

Miracles: What They Are, Why They Happen, and How They Can Change Your Life

Do miracles really exist? Wow, this book reveals just how miraculous our lives are and how the Lord is always doing miracles. If you love the mysterious and unseen part of reality, this is a great book. Eric Metaxes combines great writing, powerful analysis and moving stories to open the world of miracles to people who may not be familiar with them or may have serious doubts about them. The miracles of the bible were not imaginary stories, rather they were documented in history with eye witness testimony by so many people that there is no other rational explanation.

Hyper-Grace: Exposing the Dangers of the modern Grace Message

The age old idea of cheap Grace (Jude 1:4) has once again gained a crowd of listening ears. Dr. Brown wrote this book to address the new movement that has been called the “grace reformation”. God’s Grace is amazing, but this movement is deceived into thinking they can make Grace even better if they redefine it make it easier to live. It is fitting that this idea would gain popularity in the end times. The trouble is that it requires misinterpreting many verses and completely ignoring many others. And rather than a better identity with Christ, it results is a false identity in Christ that is misleading and void of the purpose and meaning of the Christian life.

Distortion: How the new Christian left is twisting the gospel and damaging the faith

Chelsen Vicari demonstrates how the efforts of the 'Christian Left' have deceived many—and why they need to be exposed and rejected by faithful Christians. This is the age old strategy, as recorded in Jude 1:4, to slip into the churches and gain influence in order to discredit the believers and rob those looked for the truth. This is what is happening today that has caused a mass exit of young people from the teaching of Christ.

God's Not Dead: Evidence for God in an Age of Uncertainty

This point shows that there is overwhelming and exciting evidence for God’s existence and the God who exists is indeed the God of the Bible. Presented in layman’s terms, this book addresses the most challenging topic of the twenty-first century. The evidence is undeniable. If anyone is willing to take an honest look at the evidence for God, they will come face to face with the reality of his existence. This book is a great tool for dialog with thinkers of today’s culture, filled with statements that cut the lies of the postmodern culture in pieces.

The Triumph of Christianity: How the Jesus Movement Became the World's Largest Religion

This is an honest look at how Jesus became the most important person in the history of the world. The story is fascinating because, there is a case to be made that the most important and influential person in the history of mankind was Jesus. There are other contenders, naturally; Buddha and Confucius come to mind, perhaps Muhammad. But the history of Christianity, plus the amazing speed with which it is growing in Africa and Latin America right now, certainly makes Jesus a very serious candidate. So, how did it happen? Up to now, there haven't been many satisfactory answers, unless you are content to admit that Jesus is God.

The Case for Marriage: Why Married People Are Happier, Healthier, and Better Off Financially

Marriage is a public health issue: being single can take almost 10 years off a man's life. The authors combat every negative myth regarding marriage--that it imprisons women or provides the context for abuse--with statistics showing its benefits: married people live longer, are healthier, have greater wealth and happiness, have sex more often, and provide a healthier, happier environment in which to raise children. The authors debunk many myths about marriage and explain the how and why for these results by translating social science theories into layman’s terms. The conclusion is that it is in our best interest to strengthen and uphold marriage and uphold the laws that work to strengthen it.

Life After Death: The Evidence

Life After Death: The Evidence - examines a question most of us ask ourselves and one which all of us should be asking: what comes after we "die"? And by using this method, D’Souza helps us question how we may get closer to the truth about life and mortality. D’Souza attacks the strongest arguments atheists can muster for a materialistic worldview, point by point, to show their arguments as superficial and inadequate to answer the larger questions posed by astrophysics, philosophy, sociology and psychology. If we value our lives and those of others, there is no other issue more important than the one D'Souza brings to life in his new book.
