- Jehovah's Witnesses, Jesus Christ, and the Gospel of John
by Robert M. Bowman, Jr.
One of my all-time favorites. Although it may seem dry to some, I found
it so exciting that I read it in one night - I couldn't put it down.
I never understood John 1:1 and John 8:58 until I read this book.
Robert Bowman is on the staff at
CRI has a worthwhile web site - despite the fact that they class Catholicism
as "aberrant" Christianity.

"Qualitative Anarthrous Predicate Nouns: Mark 15:39 and John 1:1"
by Phillip Harner
- This is an important article and forms the basis of much of
Bowman's analysis. Read this too. It is not targeted for the

decided to accept. Karl Keating is the founder of

- The Mother of Jesus in the New Testament by John McHugh
An especially thorough, logical, and interesting book. Few works of
Catholic apologetics about Mary can compare with this book. Scott
Hahn recommends it on one of his tapes.
