I received and read this entire book this afternoon. Granted it isn’t very long at just over 100 pages, but it was so enjoyable that I couldn’t put it down.
As the inhabitants of a single speck of dirt hurtling through space at sixty thousand miles per hour around a nameless star that is one among billions of stars in a galaxy that is also one among billions, we humans get it. We’re not in charge.
So begins one chapter – a few sentences that puts everything into perspective and made me smile as I read them.
- How It All Began
- Why We’re Here
- What Is The Bible?
- Is There Really Such A Thing As A Miracle?
- How Do I Please God?
- What About Women?
- What About Homosexuality?
- What About Other Faiths?
- What Happens After We Die?
- How Will It All End?
There’s nothing particularly groundbreaking in this book, just easy-to-understand and rational arguments explaining why the Bible is authoritative (but not infallible), women and homosexuals shouldn’t be discriminated against, and what the afterlife might be like. It gave me much to ponder and also validated some of the beliefs that I’ve already adopted as my own.
