- Steve Bishop's list (updated).
- Check out Josh Wilkerson's site too.
- John Byl's "A Christian Perspective on Math" is worth reading. Byl has several other resources here. I'll further note Christian mathematician Russell Howell reviews Byl's The Divine Challenge: On Matter, Mind, Math and Meaning (PDF).
- Mathematics: Is God Silent? by James Nickel.
- Satyan Devadoss.
- Last Seminary has several papers.
- I'd also add Timothy Gowers' Mathematics: A Very Short Introduction, his follow-up What to read after Mathematics: A Very Short Introduction, and the far lengthier The Princeton Companion to Mathematics.
- See Richard Feynman's book The Character of Physical. Particularly the chapter on the relation of mathematics to physics. Video here.
- Although not without its difficulties, What Is Mathematics? An Elementary Approach to Ideas and Methods by Richard Courant, Herbert Robbins, and edited by Ian Stewart is a classic overview. Check out this review.
- The Pleasures of Counting by T.W. Körner shows mathematical applications throughout history. Review here.
- James R. Newman (ed.)'s The World of Mathematics is a classic compilation of past papers by math legends and other thinkers.
- BTW, here are a few good places to research math topics: arXiv; MathOverflow; nLab; and Wolfram MathWorld.
- Finally, just for laughs:
