This is the first book I read when I rededicated my life to Christ. It's an excellent book in laying out the big questions and answering them in way that is extremely academic and encouraging. Coming out of college, it's really hard to get past some of the bigger questions, like does God exist, what about the universe, what about Jesus, or the witnesses, etc.? There is so much scientific data and historical records to answer these questions without a doubt for anyone who has an ear to hear it. I ...more

p.66 This drive for relationship, not just for sex, is a universal characteristic of human nature. We spend much of our lives consumed with desire for an intimate relationship that will satisfy all our needs, emotional as well as physical...We know that physical touch has extraordinary power to increase well-being, and the lack of it jeopardizes well-being. Studies show that happily married couples enjoy better health and longer lives than singles or unhappily married individuals.

Dr. Timothy Johnsons offers a sincere and personal perspective of his faith journey asking several questions most of have asked and continue to ask. Free of deep theological terms, readers will find his writing pleasant but some of his conclusions are weak on Biblical foundation. Rather than considering the whole council of God, he mostly cites the teachings of Jesus. While Jesus' teachings are certainly true they are not the whole truth and there are numerous other passages ignored that speak d ...more

Very short and not in enough depth on the answers, rather disappointed.

Great arguments for the existence of God expressed in simple terms. Dr. Johnson is a humble man in many ways, but he seems to reject the traditional view of the inspiration of scripture, and he certainly rejects the atonement of Christ as God's only plan for reconciling mankind to Himself. I'm interested in his recommended reading section.

This book started out pretty good and went a little downhill from there. Since it is so much of the authors personal journey I felt it wasn't as in depth as I would have liked. It is clear he did a lot of reading to formulate his thoughts and I appreciate the help with my own journey through the questions. Very worth reading!

Not all that I had hoped, but helpful. Certainly not traditional faith based theology, but inspiring if you are comfortable with idea that questioning our beliefs can make us stronger. Maybe we are not judged by the answers we profess, but by the questions we ask.

I enjoyed the scientific information in the first few chapters of this book. Other than this, the book is very forgetable. I was surprised how little I found interesting in the book, especially since I, myself, have so many unanswered questions about God.
I liked this book overall, but probably because Dr. Johnson's beliefs are so similar to my own. It wasn't as much apologetics as I had hoped it would be, though it was reaffirming.

Need to open our hearts and ask quesstioins to charge our hearts.
How we are to live justly in a human way.
How can we focus on a much bigger picture than just on our daily existenc.

I listened to this one in the car. It was abridged. Had some interesting points, but it seemed pretty light. Maybe the full text would be more in depth.

An honest and candid exploration of one's own doubt, faith struggle, and resolution through the lens of a medical scientist who embraces the eternal.

“Think about it: If there is a Creator who knows us and cares about how we live, then our lives should be profoundly affected. If there is a "history of the uni- verse"-and if we have a personal "history" that continues after the termination of our earthly existence-then this experience we call "life" should take on a totally different meaning, far different than just surviving on earth for as long as and in the most luxurious fashion
