A Listmania! list by Ronald C. Payne
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "Here are my favorite works about Christianity (outside of the Bible of course). These books are in no particular order."
MERE CHRISTIANITY
1.  MERE CHRISTIANITY by C. S. Lewis
The list author says:
  "I read this when I was 18 years old and it is what awakened me to the possibility that Christianity could have the answers to life's most important questions.  In other words, this book was like Pandora's box except in a good way for me."

Perelandra (Space Trilogy, Book 2)
2.  Perelandra (Space Trilogy, Book 2) by C. S. Lewis
The list author says:
  "I like the whole Space Trilogy but this one was by far the best.  Here, Lewis majestically re-mythologizes the reader's view of the Cosmos by helping us imagine a bright and joyful alternative to what Lewis called the 'Empirical Bogey' view of reality."

Orthodoxy: Centennial Edition
3.  Orthodoxy: Centennial Edition by G.K. Chesterton

The Screwtape Letters: With Screwtape Proposes a Toast
4.  The Screwtape Letters: With Screwtape Proposes a Toast by C. S. Lewis

Provocations: Spiritual Writings of Kierkegaard
5.  Provocations: Spiritual Writings of Kierkegaard by Soren Kierkegaard
The list author says:
  "An very apt title.  Kierkegaard does a great job of getting right to the meat of things, cutting through obfuscating Christian language, and to the heart of the matters of faith.  Over the years I've become both more critical of Kierkegaard and more admiring of his keen insights."
$17.40   Used & New from: $2.12

7.  The Rise of Christianity: How the Obscure, Marginal Jesus Movement Became the Dominant Religious Force in the Western World in a Few Centuries by Rodney Stark

  "A great book on the religious transformation of late antiquity from paganism to Christianity.  It is both a good history lesson and inspirational for one who seeks to follow in the Way."

The Resurrection of the Son of God (Christian Origins and the Question of God, Vol. 3)
10.  The Resurrection of the Son of God (Christian Origins and the Question of God, Vol. 3) by N. T. Wright
The list author says:
  "N.T. Wright goes through all the relevant ancient literature of resurrection belief in paganism, Judaism and early Christianity.  He then draws up a powerful argument for the historicity of the resurrection of Jesus.  A simply awesome work."

The Everlasting Man
11.  The Everlasting Man by G.K. Chesterton

3.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (181 customer reviews)

Miracles
12.  Miracles by C. S. Lewis
The list author says:
  "To be honest I found this book to be longer than necessary but in it is Lewis' important Argument from Reason, which is (at least to me) a powerful argument against Naturalism."
$13.17   Used & New from: $2.45
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (102 customer reviews)

The Pilgrim's Regress
13.  The Pilgrim's Regress by C. S. Lewis
