What are some good resources for a college science student who is starting to drift from the faith?

Question:

What books, magazines, or other materials would you recommend for a highly intelligent college science student who was raised Catholic but is doubting the existence of God, the authority of the Bible, etc.?

Answer:

The following books would be good: Handbook of Christian Apologetics by Peter Kreeft and Ronald K. Tacelli; The Creation Hypothesis edited by J. P. Moreland; Scaling the Secular City by J. P. Moreland; The Verdict of History by Gary Habermas; The Historical Reliability of the Gospels by Craig Blomberg; and Mere Christianity and Miracles, both by C. S. Lewis.
