Rational Reading Recommendations 

While it’s the goal here at Rational Faith is to demonstrate that the Christian Faith is rational because it is based on truth that is corroborated by evidence, there’s more to living out the faith than simply knowing Christianity is able to withstand any attack, and can successfully defend against any challenge. Not only is God concerned that you have a Godly view of the faith; He also wants you to have a Godly approach to all of life.  He desires that you forsake the way of the foolish and walk in the ways of the wise (Ps 1.1-2),  to walk in the ways of Godly understanding (Prov 9.6), to acknowledge him in all your says so he may make straight your paths (Prov 3.6)

To that end and particularly for the young who are in the midst of figuring out how to incorporate a Christian worldview into to their life,  following are recommended articles and videos on important topics that are beyond the scope of what is (currently) written on here at Rational Faith but are, in my humble opinion, key foundational pieces necessary to develop  an integrated rational, Christian approach to life. Scripture tells us to be transformed by “the renewing of your mind” (Rom 12.2) and with that in mind these resources are offered to help you build a worldview and approach to life that is at once well founded “wise” as God recommends, rational – that is evidentially sound, and honoring to God.  

This list which includes both videos and articles is a growing one – items will continue to be added, so stop by from time to time to see the latest additions. To help find the latest articles, here’s a Chronological List of articles added.
