These are books I recommend for the various subjects I blog about.  Sometimes books will appear in multiple subjects because they cover more than one topic.  I do not totally agree with everything in every book, but I recommend these as good intros and/or studies.  An asterisk (*) denotes an advanced reading level and/or familiarity with certain theological/philosophical subjects.
