C. S. Lewis – A Life
LTL Price: $15.00
Find this book on Amazon.

Alister McGrath paints a definitive portrait of the life of C. S. Lewis. After thoroughly examining recently published Lewis correspondence, Alister challenges some of the previously held beliefs about the exact timing of Lewis’s shift from atheism to theism and then to Christianity. McGrath gives insight into this eccentric thinker who became an inspiring, though reluctant, prophet for our times.

Darwinism & the Divine
LTL Price: $32.00

Darwinism and the Divine examines the implications of evolutionary thought for natural theology, from the time of publication of Darwin’s On the Origin of Species to current debates on creationism and intelligent design. This book questions whether Darwin’s theory of natural selection really shook our fundamental beliefs, or whether it served to transform and illuminate our views on the origins and meaning of life.

The Dawkins Delusion?
LTL Price: $8.00
Find this book on Amazon.

World-renowned scientist Richard Dawkins writes in The God Delusion, “If this book works as I intend, religious readers who open it will be atheists when they put it down.” The volume has received wide coverage, fueled much passionate debate and caused not a little confusion. Alister McGrath, along with his wife, Joanna, are ideal to evaluate Dawkins’s ideas. Once an atheist himself, he gained a doctorate in molecular biophysics before going on to become a leading Christian theologian. He wonders how two people, who have reflected at length on substantially the same world, could possibly have come to such different conclusions about God. McGrath subjects Dawkins’s critique of faith to rigorous scrutiny.

Mere Apologetics
LTL Price: $12.00
Find this book on Amazon.

In the spirit of C. S. Lewis’s Mere Christianity, Alister McGrath’s Mere Apologetics seeks to equip readers to engage gracefully and intelligently with the challenges facing the faith today while drawing appropriately on the wisdom of the past. Rather than supplying the fine detail of every apologetic issue in order to win arguments, Mere Apologetics teaches a method that appeals not only to the mind, but also to the heart and the imagination. This highly accessible, easy-to-read book is perfect for pastors, teachers, students, and lay people who want to speak clearly and lovingly to the issues that confront people of faith today.

The Passionate Intellect
LTL Price: $12.00
Find this book on Amazon.

Alister McGrath explains how Christian thinking can and must have a positive role in shaping, nourishing and safeguarding the Christian vision of reality. With this in our grasp, we have the capacity for robust intellectual and cultural engagement, confidently entering the public sphere of ideas where atheism, postmodernism and science come into play. This book explores how the great tradition of Christian theological reflection enriches faith. It deepens our appreciation of the gospel’s ability to engage with the complexities of the natural world on the one hand and human experience on the other.

Resurrection
LTL Price: $13.00
Find this book on Amazon.

Dramatically illuminated by a series of fine art paintings, this volume by Alister McGrath seeks to engage both the mind and the imagination as he explores the great and extraordinary affirmation: ‘Christ is risen!’ Poetry, prayer, and theological reflection are interwoven with commentary on the ideas conveyed through works such as Maurice Denis’s Holy Women at the Tomb, He Qi’s On the Road to Emmaus, Guercino’s Incredulity of St. Thomas, and William Blake’s River of Life. The result not only increases our understanding of the vital connection between the resurrection of the Son of God and the transformation of human existence, but also helps us to trust in the security of Christ’s grasp on our lives, as he daily sustains us by his love and power.

LTL Price: $25.00
Find this book on Amazon.

Completely updated and expanded, this third edition from one of the world’s leading theologians introduces students to key theological issues, contextualizing them within the Bible and the works of seminal theologians. Written in an engaging and clear style, this third edition is the perfect introduction to the foundations of the Christian faith and the central concepts of theology, both traditional and contemporary.

Why God Won’t Go Away
LTL Price: $10.00
Find this book on Amazon.

In a decade embroiled in fanaticism and fear, a renewed interest in the age-old debate over the question of God has reignited, giving rise to a new group of media-savvy contenders dubbed the “New Atheists.” As expressed in the works of best-selling authors like Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens, the New Atheists have found a foothold in today’s cynical society, and have ramped up their efforts to debunk the existence of God. In this thoughtful and accessible volume, McGrath gives a spirited rebuttal to the claims of New Atheists, critiquing the New Atheism on its own merits and exploring some of their fundamental questions.
