Book Recommendations on Christianity and SSA

Over the last few months, I have had several requests for a few book recommendations on this topic.  I thought this would be a good place to start putting together a list for anyone who might be interested.  As I read more, I will add more.  I hope you find them as helpful as I did. So, here they are in the order I have read them:

1.  The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert:  An English Professor’s Journey into the Christian Faith by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield.
