This is a very short reference list of authors that have been influential in my life along with links that may guide you to find answers to your spiritual questions or comfort in your circumstances. And, I would always welcome your questions or comments privately or as a public reply for others to read and respond to.
-Timothy Keller is who I would describe is the contemporary Lewis/Schaeffer. If you want an intellectual and convincing perspective of the Christian faith and faith walk, please read.

-Tony Evans (and his adult children) offer much practical and authentic insights.
-Henry Morris is one of the founders of Institute for Creation Research (ICR).
