The God Question: How It Came to Be
It is a number of years ago now that I read Richard Dawkins’ The God Delusion. Personally, I found his arguments against the existence of God less than compelling. In fact, his most impressive “evidence” was the perception of denial that permeated his arguments, the sense that he did not want God telling him what was right or wrong or what he could or could not do. The essence of his argument was that he wanted to rule his own destiny and wanted others to have that same freedom. His arguments against God seemed to me to affirm that deep inside he was aware that God was there and wanted to hide Him from view.
I felt compelled to respond to Dawkins’ effort and published an essay titled The God Question. Over time the essay developed into a small book that is now available in paperback at Amazon or Barnes & Noble and for $ .99 as a Kindle e-book.
Rather than a scientific treatise, The God Question is a practical presentation of rational everyday evidences for the existence of God. You do not need a doctoral degree in one of the sciences to know that God is there.
A reviewer of my work accused me of “lame character assassination” and “belittling Dawkins.” I wonder if he read my book. The reality is that Dawkins belittles Christians in his work. Dawkins once referred to me as one of “his latest fleas.” But tearing down Dawkins is not my purpose. As with the Church of England, I pray for him, and I would that he had a personal relationship with Christ, that he knew the joy of knowing the God who created him. The purpose of The God Question is to point out that there are viable reasons to believe in the God who is there.
Food for Thought
Detractors will rip at The God Question, while honest seekers and thinkers—agree or disagree—will give serious thought to its content. Other authors have addressed Christian evidences in more depth, but the general reader should find this book helpful.
