6 Best Books About God’s Existence Update 05/2022

Books About God Existence

The following are my top five picks for parents who want to learn more about the evidence that God is real: I think it’s best to read them in this order:

Talking with Your Kids about God: 30 Conversations Every Christian Parent Must Have By Natasha Crain

Talking with Your Kids about God 30 Conversations Every Christian Parent Must Have By Natasha Crain

If you’re new to the subject and want to learn more about it, I think you should start with this book. It’s the only one on the subject written specifically for parents and is a great way to get started.

There are 30 important conversations that parents should have with their kids about God because we live in a world that isn’t very religious. This book walks you through those 30 conversations. Among them are sections on the nature and existence of God as well as on why we should believe in him or her and what a difference he or she can make. Every chapter comes with a conversation guide for you and your kids to use when you talk about what you’re reading (adaptable for kids of any age). This book can be used at home, in homeschooling, in small groups, in church classes, in youth groups, and in Christian schools because of how the chapters are organized.

God’s Crime Scene: A Cold-Case Detective Examines the Evidence for a Divinely Created Universe By J. Warner Wallace

This is the ultimate book on the evidence for God’s existence.

God has a crime scene. brilliantly lays out the case for God’s existence based on evidence from the origin of the universe, the fine-tuning of the universe, the origin of life, the design of life, our experience of consciousness, free will, and morality, as well as the fact that we have free will and that we are moral. This is how a detective would look at evidence found at a crime scene in each chapter. In the process, he points readers to “expert witnesses” who come to different conclusions about the evidence. Then, at the end of the book, he gives a great reading list so the reader can keep studying both sides. To get the full picture, you might have to read it a few times. But it’s worth it.

Stealing from God: Why Atheists Need God to Make Their Case By Frank Turek

In this book, Frank Turek talks about why atheists need God to make their case.

Atheists can’t make their case if they don’t use things that only theism can explain. Frank Turek walks through causality, reason, information & intentionality, morality, evil, and science (CRIMES) to show that atheists can’t make their case if they don’t use things that only theism can explain. A good follow-up to God’s Crime Scene. It talks about a lot of the same things, but with a unique and memorable point of view that will really help you understand them better. I think it’s great.

The God Delusion By Richard Dawkins

The God Delusion By Richard Dawkins

It’s time to read a book by an atheist after you’ve read the two books on the list above. Richard Dawkins is probably the world’s most well-known atheist, and his writings have been very important. None of the things I’ve said will make you feel as urgent as reading this book will. You may find it hard to read about religious hatred, but you need to know what your kids will be facing when they grow up. Otherwise, it would be like training a football team and not watching the game films of your next opponent. This is like not watching the game films of your next opponent. If you want to read a book written by someone who doesn’t believe in God, this is the best one to start with.

True Reason: Confronting the Irrationality of the New Atheism a volume of essays edited by Tom Gilson and Carson Weitnauer

This is a great collection of essays that show that popular atheists, like Dawkins, don’t have any special right to be more reasonable than people who believe in God. They did a great job. Isn’t it better for you to read a book by an atheist before reading this? It will be much more important for you to read that book first. I think you should read The God Delusion, then read this great response to it. The authors respond to more than just Dawkins, so you’ll learn what other atheist authors say as well. If you know teenagers who have been influenced by atheist writers, give them a copy of True Reason as well.

Summa Theologiae, Questions on God by (ed.) Brian Davies and Brian Leftow

We should start with the man. There are a lot of questions about God in Brian Davies and Brian Leftow’s first book. Why did you pick this?

If you want to know about God’s existence and nature, this book is for you. It’s basically the first quarter or so of Part One of Summa Theologiae, where Aquinas talked about it. These are parts of Aquinas’ book that deal with natural theology, which is different than revelation, which is what he talks about in this part of his book. Later on in the Summa, of course, he brings in ideas from revealed theology when he talks about things like the doctrine of the Trinity. That’s not the case with the material in this book, though. He’s only looking at the subject from a philosophical point of view. It doesn’t matter if you don’t agree with Aquinas’ beliefs about Christianity. Even if you don’t, you can still find a lot of value in this book.

Is he making a case that starts with the fact that God exists and then talks about how God is.

You can find his famous “Five Ways” in this material. A lot of that comes very early in the discussion. It’s part of how he starts the discussion about God. There are a lot of people who don’t know what the Five Ways are. First of all, Aquinas didn’t come up with the Five Ways. He wouldn’t say that they were his own. Five main lines of argument were in the air, as it were, at the time he wrote. If you want to make a case for God’s existence, these were some common ways to do it. That’s the first thing you should notice: they aren’t original and Aquinas doesn’t think they are original.
