I haven't read the Gordon MacDonald title or Philip Yancey's What's So Amazing About Grace but everything else I've read by Yancey, especially Disappointment with God, was very good. Several of White's commenters suggest Timothy Keller's The Reason for God, a choice which I would enthusiastically support. His seven, alphabetical by author:
