I recommend Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis. It's not so much apologetics as it is understanding Christianity, but I still love it.
Pro-life answers to Pro-Choice Arguments is a must-read for any Apologist and Christian studying abortion and the sanctity of human life. It is great for sitting down and reading, but even better for researching quick topics as they come up in life.
Hope you enjoy!
I took a look at my library catalog and did a search on "apologetics" and came up with six books.
Mere Christianity, already mentioned.
City of God by St. Augustine - a classic
Screwtape Letters - this is very good reading.
The Christian Agnostic by Leslie D. Weatherhead, which I haven't read at all, but somehow own.
God Man by Anthony Bloom, a very good Russian Orthodox writer. (Note the title is actually "God and Man" - so I left the 'and' out to get the Touchstone to work a little better).
"Liturgy and Society: the function of the church in the modern world", by Arthur Hebert
To add to what I've said. I looked up The Christian Agnostic in Worldcat and 938 libraries own it (a pretty good number) even though only 54 LTers own it. It deals seriously with how Christians can deal with their doubts.
Liturgy and Society: the function of the church in the modern world came up with the wrong Touchstone.
It seems that the last two titles are no longer available on Amazon.com, any idea if there's any sample chapters on The Christian Agnostic?
"God and Man" has a partial view on Google books at: http://books.google.com/books?id=bXkEDYYBmDoC&printsec=frontcover&dq=god...
There were no previews of the "Christian Agnostic" or of "Liturgy and Society on Google Books. (The books are in Google, the previews aren't available). Maybe Project Canterbury?
Their are several used copies of Christian Agnostic available at Alibris.com.
I hate the two books questions because I always have at least 3....LOL
The three I would recommend are The Language of God: A Scientist Presents Evidence for Belief
Mere Christianity and The End of Reason: A Response to the New Atheists.
If you want to introduce a non-believer, one that can read presumably (It's amazing how few can or will anymore) I'd go with The Case For The Creator or the Case for Christ
