Pathways to Joy combines extensive research with an absorbing personal story to create a very readable and compelling case for faith. The book moves from the historical evidence for the resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth, to mathematical evidence for intelligent design in creation. The final chapter becomes philosophical, with a consideration of what it all means for questions of free will, good and evil. It's a very enjoyable and thought-provoking read, likely to launch readers into further ...more

At first I was reluctant to read a book whose subject was atheism, however what I found was a beautiful, throughly enjoyable and informative book. The author explores the stories of various notable atheists whose search for truth resulted in their conversion to Christianity. Each story is carefully explored and woven into a charming and thought provoking quick read. At a time in our society where atheism is growing to be more of the norm, this book invites its readers to actively examine and ...more

This book was a "joy" to read. Lunn's theme was intriguing: a number of former atheists such as Lewis, Muggeridge, Pascal, Wallace, Flew and others came to faith in Christ, or at least turned to theism and belief in God. The book was well organized with a helpful summary of each main character and his/her thinking. There was an ongoing interaction with the Bible, and the focus on joy was consistent, not only in the title, but throughout the book.
"Pathways" was an easy read with a solid flow to

The author presents case studies summarizing the investigations of atheists into the validity of Jesus Christ and Christianity. His investigation finds a common thread surprisingly consistent among them. He then presents a brief summary of the facts that changed the mind of one of the most famous atheist, Anthony Flew. A short, concise and entertaining read that may help convert the doubter, and provides a Pathway to Joy for everyone !

Thanks for “Pathways to Joy”. It was an interesting read. I especially enjoyed chapter IX & XI.
I sometimes fall into that group of people who wonder why God allows certain events to happen.
Looking at it from a time perspective is a game changer. He tells us in Psalms Chapter 90 that
time is not as His time. I love the math in chapter XI. I pray that God uses Mr. Lunn's work to reach
lost souls allowing them a pathway to joy through Him.

I won this book on a goodreads giveaway. I was very disappointed that it was not the type of book it was made to sound like. I should've realized it was a sort of Christian catfish scam, but I didn't until I actually received the book.

I won this book on Goodreads!! It was a fast and easy read. I was a little disappointed that the chapters were so short I would have liked to get more information on how the individuals actucallly found joy through Jesus.
