Thinking of my own experience of being an exMormon who later decided to try and open the door to understand something of the rest of the Christian tradition I found Irenaeus Against Heresy very helpful. It starts slow with more than you wanted to know about 2nd century heterodox groups. It then presents a clear concise presentation of basic Christian doctrine.
Invaluable book. Helped me sort out the apostasy, and understand various forms of gnosticism.

Hard to prioritize purchases in the Christmas season. I'm sure you understand. :wink:
And many on this list are free!

Indeed. When I finish the list, I plan to include links to the ones that are available for free online.

In other news, think I'm going to have to remove Ravi Zacharias from this list, because DAMN.

Very nice work, Jack. I admit that I kind of expected Hans Küng's On Being a Christian to be on your list.
