re: Books on Christianity
Just as I am. Billy Graham biography was one of the most inspirational books ive ever read. It’s thick as a steak but I couldn’t put it down. Definitely my top five books I’ve ever read.

VALIS trilogy by Philip K Dick: VALIS,The Divine Invasion , and the Transmigration of Timothy Archer.
Not your traditional Christian books, but I'd say they qualify.

enjoyed The Shack


Yep. Awesome book. As a father of a 4 year old, a few times someone placed a salad shooter set to maximum with an onion cannon underneath my seat.

Books makes some great points around who God is (and the Holy Trinity) and how tough forgiveness is.

Bishop Robert Barron has a great review as well (for another perspective) .

I just finished Bill O'Reilly's "Killing Jesus". Really good book that teaches you about the political climate at the time of Jesus and the roles of Tiberias, Herod, Antipas, Caiaphas, etc. Really helps you understand why Jesus was a major threat to them and why these people reacted the way they did.

re: Books on Christianity
I can’t imagine a lesser authority writing such an important book.

According to Christianity, something O’Reilly regards little, Jesus died because it was God’s will that he should.
No political entity is solely responsible. Did he mention any of that?

A concise history of the Catholic Church, by Thomas Bokenkotter. Covers this, he goes into the Protestant Reformation and subsequent developments as well.

Although his conclusion that Jesus was a zealot is disputed, to say the least, Reza Aslan’s book Zealot also did a good job of painting a picture of the political climate at the time.

I'd love to read the Reformation from a Catholic perspective.

Does he talk about the development of the sacramental system as well?

Yes, it's high level but interesting. Lot of discussion about how the nobility used/tried to use the Church in their politics
