Resources to share with those exploring Christianity:


There aren't many outlets for people to process the claims of Christianity and the person of Jesus with others. This makes it difficult to ask hard or "scandalous" questions about the faith without fear of judgment or pressure. That's why Park Church is hosting Alpha.

Alpha is a series of open and informal conversations about life, spirituality, and the person of Jesus. Sessions take place over a meal at a home with a group of peers. Each session explores an element of the Christian faith with an emphasis on creating conversation.

At Alpha, there is no obligation to say anything and there is nothing you can’t say. This space is for all who have questions and doubts, Christians and non-Christians alike.

The Reason for God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism

by Tim Keller

Timothy Keller, the founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, addresses the frequent doubts that skeptics, and even ardent believers, have about religion. Using literature, philosophy, real-life conversations, and potent reasoning, Keller explains how the belief in a Christian God is, in fact, a sound and rational one. To true believers he offers a solid platform on which to stand their ground against the backlash to religion created by the Age of Skepticism. And to skeptics, atheists, and agnostics, he provides a challenging argument for pursuing the reason for God.

Confronting Christianity: 12 Hard Questions for the World's Largest Religion

by Rebecca McLaughlin

Christianity is the most widespread global belief system, and promises to remain so well into the future. But for many educated westerners, biblical Christianity is a dangerous idea―challenging some of their deepest beliefs.

Channeling state-of-the-art research, personal stories, and careful biblical study, Confronting Christianity explores 12 questions that keep many of us from considering faith in Christ. Look more closely, McLaughlin argues, and the reality of suffering, the complexity of sexuality, the desire for diversity, the success of science, and other seeming roadblocks to faith become signposts. Jesus becomes not a relic from the ancient world, but our modern world’s best hope.

The Secular Creed: Engaging Five Contemporary Claims

by Rebecca McLaughlin

“In this house we believe that: Black Lives Matter. Love Is Love. Gay Rights Are Civil Rights. Women’s Rights Are Human Rights. Transgender Women Are Women.” You may have seen signs with some of these messages in your neighborhood. They offer us an all-or-nothing package deal—in short, a secular creed. In this provocative book, Rebecca McLaughlin helps us disentangle the beliefs Christians gladly affirm from those they cannot embrace, and invites us to talk with our neighbors about the things that matter most. Far from opposing love across difference, McLaughlin argues, Christianity is the original source and firmest foundation for true diversity, equality, and life-transforming love.

Before You Share Your Faith: Five Ways to Be Evangelism Ready

Matt Smethurst

When it comes to evangelism, we often struggle. Maybe it’s the inertia that comes with feeling out of practice. Or perhaps it's the age-old presence of fear that keeps us from speaking truth in love. Sometimes, a low-level guilt over countless missed opportunities tempts us to despair of trying at all.

In Before You Share Your Faith―a follow-up to Before You Open Your Bible―Matt Smethurst presents five ways you can become "evangelism ready." While many good books begin further downstream by teaching how to evangelize, this volume will help you be primed for when the moment arrives. Because if you aren’t ready to share your faith . . . you probably won't. Casting light on five key foundations―grasp the gospel, check your context, love the lost, face your fear, and start to speak―this resource will deepen your desire and enhance your readiness to share the best news anyone could ever hear.

How to Reach the West Again: Six Essential Elements of a Missionary Encounter

by Tim Keller

Free eBook Podcast

Christianity is declining in the West. Churches in the United States, Canada, Australia, and Europe are closing their doors at an accelerating rate. How will the church respond?

In this short but sweeping manifesto, New York Times bestselling author and pastor Timothy Keller argues that this decline should prompt us to rethink the church's mission from the ground up. Using the early church as our guide, churches and individual Christians must examine ourselves, our culture, and Scripture to work toward a new missionary encounter with Western culture that will make the gospel both attractive and credible to a new generation.
