Trying Hard Not To Believe?: You Are Not Alone, Many Started Out That Way (Paperback)
This book was written in the hopes of strengthening the faith of believers and of presenting strong evidence to nonbelievers of the veracity of the Scriptures.
Over and over again, the Bible has come under attack, only to be vindicated. And over and over again, professing atheists have become strong believers in God after doing research, with the very purpose of disproving the Scriptures.
I believe there is overwhelming evidence from various fields of study to support Christian beliefs.
This book could be valuable in helping teachers to address areas of doubt that students may have regarding the Scriptures. The chapters could be used as individual lessons.
For nonbelievers, the gospel message is for us to realize that we are sinners in need of a Savior and that Jesus, the sinless Son of God, provided the perfect sacrifice to pay for our sins on the cross. By acknowledging this to God, we are saved by grace.
The story of the prodigal son is a well-known Bible story. Really, it is much more the story of the father than of the son. It shows that if we repent and come to God, he will run to meet us with open arms.
Instead of seeing God as someone with a spindly finger shaking at you, I hope you will realize his great love for you and come to him. He is just a prayer away.
We are all left with our own choice to make. I hope you choose Jesus.
