From Willow Creek to Sacred Heart

Rekindling My Love For Catholicism

by Chris Haw

"An important addendum to the story of 21st Century American Christianity—not only because Haw's journey is representative, but because he has engaged the questions that come up along the way so well." —Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, author of The Wisdom of Stability and The Awakening of Hope

Haw Wins: Pagan Christianity and the New Apologetics

Sam Rocha

This book is an outright polemic. Aggressive. It is a devastating critique of cheap faddish religions, from Rob Bell and emergent churchiness to the quixotically unbiblical Biblical Evangelicals to New Atheists — and also to prudish Roman Catholics. No prisoners.

How To Preach The Gospel
