#STRaskStand to Reason

Questions about what to read to take your apologetics knowledge up a notch, how to reconcile friends’ experiences encountering ghosts with what the Bible teaches, whether you should give charitably without taking a deduction on your taxes, and whether God has moods.

* For those who have a good grasp of the basics of apologetics, what would you recommend reading to take things up a notch?

* How can I reconcile friends’ experiences encountering ghosts in a house that was used in the Underground Railroad with the Bible’s teaching that dead people can’t come back to haunt the living?

* Should I give charitably without taking a deduction on my taxes so “my left hand doesn’t know what my right hand is doing”?

* What do you think of the idea that God has moods?
