How to Be Your Own Selfish Pig:  And Other Ways You've Been Brainwashed
Susan Schaeffer Macaulay 

I remember seeing this glaring, obnoxious title on Daddy's bookshelves for as long as I can remember.  Now I have my own copy, and figured it was about time to read it!  Susan Schaeffer Macaulay--Francis Schaeffer's daughter--calmly and rationally explains Christian apologetics with a potato peeler in hand and soup simmering on the stove.  Without compromising truth, she brings huge life issues down to earth, explaining controversial topics with wisdom and perspective.

Macaulay documents the stories and journeys of real-life people--from those who cut themselves, to those who have had abortions, to others who just can't believe in God.  The underlining premise is that beliefs eventually change the way you live your life--and that the world can only really make sense if you believe in one creating, sustaining God.
