    One good book would be "The Biblical Flood: A Case Study of the Church's
    Response to Extrabiblical Evidence" by Davis Young. Centered around just one
    geologic issue, but it is educational in that it concentrates on the
    historical development of the church's interpretation of geological evidence
    (and Biblical evidence). And he makes good points about how non-scientific
    factors, such as theology and Biblical interpretation, are also important for
    a Christian to think clearly about when dealing with these issues.
