Science and the Mind of the Maker: What the Conversation Between Faith and Science Reveals About God by Melissa Cain Travis
The question of cosmic origins and our place in the grand scheme of things has been debated for millennia. Why do we exist? Why does anything exist at all?
Today’s popular narrative, based on advancements in science, is that it all happened by natural, random processes. Melissa Cain Travis points to powerful evidence that the opposite is true—that cosmology, astronomy, biochemistry, and other disciplines strongly support what she calls “The Maker Thesis,” which explains the origin, rationality, and intricacy of nature and the human mind’s capacity to comprehend it.
Our universe is made up of numerous complex systems of order that both interact and coexist with each other as if in a carefully choreographed dance. Follow along on a fascinating journey about how the structure of nature and the mind of man resonate in ways that point to a Maker who fully intended the astounding discoveries being made in the natural sciences today.

Every day we wake up in a nation and world that is increasingly hostile to our beliefs and values. Even the basic freedoms that define America–speech and religion–are under attack.

A Doubter’s Guide to Jesus: An Introduction to the Man from Nazareth for Believers and Skeptics by John Dickson
A Doubter’s Guide to Jesus is an introduction to the major portraits of Jesus found in the earliest historical sources. Portraits because our best information points not to a tidy, monolithic Jesus, but to a complex, multi-layered and, at times, contradictory figure. While some might be troubled by this, fearing that plurality equals incomprehensibility or unreliability, others take it as an invitation to do some rearranging for themselves, trying to make Jesus neater, more systematic and digestible.
After two millennia of spiritual devotion and more than two centuries of modern critical research, we still cannot fit Jesus into a box. He is destined to stretch our imaginations, confront our beliefs, and challenge our lifestyles for many years to come.
In A Doubter’s Guide to Jesus readers will find themselves both disturbed and intrigued by the images of Jesus found in the first sources.
Atheism on Trial: Refuting the Modern Arguments Against God by Louis Markos
Atheists are launching a new wave of attacks against Christianity and faith in God. It’s hard to know how to handle their claims that they have a more enlightened, scientific, and sophisticated worldview. How can you respond with precision to arguments against your faith?
With instructive clarity, Dr. Louis Markos confronts the modern-day atheists’ claims that new evidence disproves the existence of God. In fact, you will find that the “proof” they peddle is not new at all. Rather, they recycle claims that have already been disproven by Christian thinkers of the past…claims that you can silence today with the same solid logic.
Equip yourself to defend your beliefs from a deep well of knowledge and conviction. Stand in confidence that the trial of public opinion versus universal truth has already been held—and God is the victor.
