I have a relative whom is serving time in prison for the third time in the last 10 years. It seems as if each time he gets let go, he steals, does drugs and ends up in there again. He came from a easy-believism church and I am not sure, but I believe him to be a false convert, yet I can't say for certain. Perhaps he has heard too many self-esteem messages and weak presentations on sin, hell, and repentance so he sees no need to change his life. You can't recommend the Bible because all seeker friendly, easy believism, and such churches with false converts use the Bible but fail to interpret it properly. This is why a good book or books would be good as the author can communicate the Bible well and hit on sin. I had thought about getting him the Gospel According to Jesus but its an academic read and needed something simple. Paul Washer's books would have the same problem. So I bought him Hard to Believe and the Vanishing Conscience which may be the best for laymen whom are or maybe false converts. Did I get the best books? Calvinist that are well educated in books can tell me if I missed a hidden gem by a good author.
