As he entered his four-year-old son Jon’s room, long-time Atheist Chet Galaska said his first genuine prayer in decades, and told God that if Jon wanted to read “The Golden Book About God” instead of “P.J. Funnybunny,” the book he’d requested every night for weeks, he would believe in Him again. Jon had “P.J.” in his hands, put it on his bed, walked over to the bookcase, pulled out the “GOD” book, and handed it to him. “I want to read this tonight,” he said. The journey back to belief had begun.
Some chapters deal with matters of faith such as prayer, redemption, salvation and sin. Others address issues like Christian hypocrisy, why bad things happen, miracles, and the Christian view of war. Some are about the seemingly contradictory relationship between science and religion that are discussed in chapters on scientific perception, creation and evolution. Other subjects, like the sometimes cruel and violent history of Christianity, “Born Agains” and the Christian view of the Jewish people don’t fit into any category. The common denominator is that each addresses an issue that can be misunderstood and create a distorted, unfair and negative view of the faith. This book is written in an understandable, interesting and down to earth way in brief chapters.
