Finding a coherent set of answers to life’s age-old questions can be an onerous undertaking. Yet the questions abound in our culture, and a rational collection of answers is seemingly ungraspable. Commoners have been led to believe that beliefs are irreversibly inconsequential. Youngsters are boldly instructed to merely seek success. Teachers unblushingly preach to students that there is no such thing as truth. With uncountable opinions and beliefs put forth, who ought we to trust? Should we give credence to the preachy words of secularists who do not even have the backbone to adhere to a logically consistent worldview? Are we to trust the pop psychologists who unmindfully and unabashedly bypass life’s essential questions? Would it be shrewd of us to subscribe to the pluralists who lack the decency to study incommensurable worldviews, yet absurdly accept contrasting worldviews as equally valid? Whom shall we trust? In a culture where common sense has commonly vanished amongst commoners, we would do well to welcome common sense into our lives. Thinking episodically has become the modern routine, and yet, such a routine suffocates us in the ruins of our own lack of thinking, for thinking episodically is really no way of thinking at all. Perhaps, just perhaps, the answers to life’s most pressing questions are within our reach, but first we must be willing to embrace common sense.

What Is a Man? Biologically, we are animals--homo sapiens. But men are different, born with consciousness, reason, free will, notions of morality, and other characteristics of what we call "human nature." Why are we different? Were we created by God or are we just accidents of nature? Are you a child of the King or just a child of King Kong? This is a book of apologetics for laypeople. It looks at arguments for the existence of God and especially at those arguments that can be drawn from human nature. It argues in plain language, with illustrations and humor, that we cannot explain human nature without God, that men are miracles.
Portraying themselves as challenging blind religious dogma with evidence-led skepticism, the neo-atheist movement claims that the New Testament contains unreliable tales about a mythical figure who, far from being the resurrected Lord of life, may not even have lived. This comprehensive critique documents the falsehood of these neo-atheist claims, correcting their historical and philosophical mistakes to show how we can get at the truth about the historical Jesus.
If you think atheists have reason, evidence, and science on their side, think again! Award-winning author Dr. Frank Turek (I Don’t Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist) will show you how atheists steal reason, evidence, science, and other arguments from God in trying to make their case for atheism. If that sounds contradictory, it’s because it is! Atheists can’t make their case without appealing to realities only theism can explain. In an engaging and memorable way, Stealing from God exposes these intellectual crimes atheists are committing and then provides four powerful reasons for why Christianity is true.

Maybe you were born to Christian parents and raised as a Christian. Or maybe you are just a part of a Christian nation.Â You might have attended church regularly, or maybe just on special occasions.Â If asked, you say that you believe in God, but you really never thought about what that means exactly.Â You are a well-educated person who accepts the idea of Biblical miracles, but only the more "reasonable" ones.Â You have read some of the Bible, mostly just parts of the New Testament, but never committed to reading the Bible cover to cover.Â You are a good person who admires the many "Christian values" as demonstrated by Jesus Christ.Â But something does not feel right. * Science tells us that the universe is 13.7 billion years old, but the Bible tells us it's 6,000 years old. * Science tells us life is the result of emergent properties in combined molecules, and we have evolved from a very primitive life form, but the Bible says that God made us, as is, from dust, and blew life in our noses. * You see a world where little bunnies burn to death in forest fires, and wonder why an all-good and loving God would allow such a thing to happen. * You pray to God and you realize that sometimes your prayers are answered, and sometimes they aren't -- just as if you didn't pray at all. * You hear about other religions and wonder why your religion is right and every other religion on the planet is wrong. * You have a real problem with the idea of all your non-Jesus-believing friends and family spending eternity in Hell.âe¨ In fact, the more you look around, the more you see a world absent of this perfect image of a perfect God.Â As much as you want to avoid critical thinking and "just let go and have faith", you find that you cannot believe in something contrary to your logic and reason -- no matter how much you want to.Â This might lead to feelings of guilt, insincerity, and/or hypocrisy. Yet you just can't imagine living life without God, and you don't have to. When you start asking serious questions about God and religion, you begin to see through the stories of people living inside the stomachs of big fish, 900-year-old men, and bodies coming back to life after three days, and understand how man created God, and not the other way around. By daring to question "sacred" religion, challenging your childhood beliefs, and risking eternal damnation (okay, so there might be a minor side effect to reading this book), you will discover an appreciation for religion on a new level, as well as a renewed appreciation for the human race. Through a unique blend of science, philosophy, theology, and a touch of humor, you will see how you can trust your logic and reason, be true to yourself, and embrace God - not as a being, but as a concept - The Concept.
This updated edition by one of the world's leading apologists presents a systematic, positive case for Christianity that reflects the latest work in the contemporary hard sciences and humanities. Brilliant and accessible.
Some time ago I published The Theory of Universal Genesis in the book The Divine Light; this text became the first chapter in the Bible of the Light. It is a dialogue between myself and the Divine Light that appeared to me in a lucid dream and which inspired me to write all this.Bible of the Light is an anthology composed of several books published along the time as and new books which for the first time will be published. For many years I felt that I will receive these revelations from the Divine Light and that I will publish such a work entitled Bible of the Light.To those wishing to is heal through the holy breath of Divine Light, them I wish to they find the tranquility and peace through these pages. No matter how unhappy would be some, through Bible of the Light will understand that everything is just a passing cloud, and that the true eternal life is alongside the Divine Light that is the true God. Amen.This Bible will make the definitive peace between God and Satan, in the man soul, because Satan is the Evil without which the Good identified through God and would lose any luster. All churches of the world would disappear if would not more existed Satan! The spiritual peace between Satan and God lead for the first time to a healthy society, where the folly, pride, vanity and hypocrisy, alongside with many other evils will disappear and once with these and servants of a Good who can not understand the Evil.Here you will find out to whom and how should you pray if you necessarily want to do it. If is necessary to yourself pray or not. Who is God and what wants Him from us, but and who we are and what we want from God from inside us. Amen.
