A Reasonable Response, William Lane Craig – Craig, one of the top apologists in the world, tackles some of the difficult questions in faith, philosophy, and history.

There is a God, Anthony Flew – Flew was one of the world’s most notorious atheists for most of his life. His career was to attack the idea of God and he debated many believers in the process. But just years before he died, he “followed the evidence where it led” and came to believe in God.
