Here are some fantastic books that support orthodox Christian perspectives.  These are the kind of books I wish I had known about when I was in seminary.

Don’t just trust what you read in these books; compare them to the revisionist literature out there and make up your own mind.  Christian orthodoxy should be believed not because it is venerable, but because it is TRUE.

Listing of resources does not imply endorsement of every perspective found in these books, it merely states that we (I and the people who help me compose this list) think on balance these are books worth reading.
