Hello! I have one further book recommendation. His name is Peter Kreeft. He is suppose to be done of the go to authors for all things Catholic. He refers to himself as an orthodox Christian as opposed to a modernist one. He gets polemical and is strident in his views. I have read a few of his books but the one that sticks out is his "Handbook of Christian Apologetics. It is written in a philosophical manner due to him and his co author, Ronald Tacelli, being philosophy professors. If there is one book has taken me off the agnostic fence and placed me in a Christian sphere this has to be it. I was drifting that way anyhow but glad I have arrived.
