    I have colleagues who are Theravada Buddhists, although I don't think they are serious practitioners. Anyway, I want to give them a Christian/Reformed book that emphasizes the person of Jesus Christ and salvation from sin.
    I also plan on evangelizing them, so I would appreciated bibliographic suggestions.

    In this context, what Christian books do you recommend for Buddhists?

    I don't have any Christian books to recommend for Buddhists or any experience in dealing with them. You might find Michael Robinson's "One Way to God: Christian Philosophy and Presuppositional Apologetics Examine World Religions" helpful regarding an intellectual understanding of the erroneous foundation of the Buddhist worldview.

    Despite the author's rabid anti-Calvinism, Mark Cahill's book One Heartbeat Away is a good introduction to Christianity for unbelievers. So is John Blanchard's Is Anybody Out There?​ Since most Buddhists do not believe in an almighty God, these books might help them think about this issue.

    I am not familiar with the books you recommend; but I whole heartedly agree that most Theravada Buddhists, Mahayana Buddhists, Vajrayana Buddhists, and many Hindus are not Theists.
