Bob's Reading List

Bob Enyart recommends the following books:

  • In the Beginning, Walt Brown. This former Air Force Academy instructor is a great science educator, and Real Science Radio believes that Dr. Brown has authored the most effective book ever at scientifically refuting the atheistic worldview and presenting the evidence for the global flood. The book wonderfully explains topics to a lay audience, yet the thousand references to peer-reviewed journals in the endnotes makes it helpful even for the scientist.

  • God, Time, and the Incarnation, Liberty University's Dr. Richard Holland Jr., assistant professor of apologetics and theology, presents the significant consequences of the incarnation of Jesus Christ on the question of sequence in the life of God, who was, and is, and is to come.

  • Mere Christianity, C. S. Lewis

  • QED, atheist Richard Feynman

  • The Companion Bible, E. W. Bullinger

  • Evidence That Demands a Verdict, Josh McDowell

  • The Soul of Science, Nancy Pearcey and Charles Thaxton

  • Who Moved the Stone? Frank Morison

  • Leftism Revisited, Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihin

  • Human Action by Ludwig von Mises. Of necessity of course, Mises repeatedly contradicts his own "no values" claim for economics. Economics is a branch of the science of human action (praxeology) that is closer to psychology, much to his chagrin, than to physics or chemistry. Thus values, that is, moral values, are essential for the science of economics, which truth von Mises repeatedly denies through his 1000-page book, yet simultaneously everywhere affirms, often within the space of a page. For Mises himself points out that economic calculation is not even possible where socialist/interventionist policies violate the right to own private property. For example, consider a 200-room ocean resort that would be worth $100 million in Florida, but it's in in Hugo Chavez' Venezuela where the owners have listed it for sale for $1 million. Is that a good deal? Since the government may at its whim confiscate the property at any time, economic calculation is not even possible. So von Mises claim that the science of economics can exist apart from any system of values is false. For apart from the value embodied in God's enduring command, "Thou shalt not steal", economic calculation itself is not even possible. History is replete with brilliant men driven to absurd conclusions by their rejection of our creator God.
