Evidence For Gods Existence and Identity

Newly edited version 3-9-12. There are many contradictory beliefs about God that claim to be the truth. But since truth never contradicts itself, who really has the truth? Utilizing objective evidence like a detective does in an investigation, the facts point to the one belief that can be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. One truth that applies to everyone if they believe it or not. Follow the evidence and see for yourself.

Setting feelings and what others believe aside for a moment learn why objective evidence is the best way to find truth in any investigation, including the truth about God. See for yourself exactly why Christianity is the most reasonable belief available based on the facts and why it applies to everyone, everywhere even if they do not believe it. Learn the two things we all encounter daily that the Bible states is absolute proof of God's existence and leave every person without excuse, even those who have never read the Bible. Learn why trying to be a good person is not good enough.

Weigh the objective evidence for yourself and make a reasonable decision about God and then pass the evidence on to others so they can discover the truth. Everyone deserves the opportunity to examine the evidence for themselves.

Perfect for the seeker and the believer who want to eliminate doubts and have a reasonable assurance that their faith is actually placed in the truth.If you are a believer you have an obligation to share the truth. Let this book show your friends and family the sound foundation your belief rests upon.

It's not about religion, it's about truth.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Introduction to Apologetics--re-edited Feb. 10 2012
By Elizabeth Ewoldt - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Update: As noted in a comment to this review, the kindle edition has been re-edited, and I am changing my review to reflect this. Good job, nice arguments. Thanks for making it available to us.

This book is a nice summary of Christian apologetic arguments, but . . .

I didn't realize how distracting it is to read a poorly edited book. There are many incomplete and run on sentences. Punctuation is frequently improper. Some words are misused--for example, conscience v. conscious. Others are misspelled--Regan rather than Reagan. And then there were the 1017 silver dollars that if scattered would cover Texas two feet deep.

There are general editing issues as well. For example, some of the headings are confusing or not to the point. One heading was "Is the New Testament Accurate?" while the next was "Is the New Testament True?" The first section was about the accuracy of the manuscript evidence, while the second was about the historical accuracy.

Some of the arguments also need to be strengthened or restructured. Sorry I didn't note these so can't be specific.

Like the previous reviewer, I commend the author on his research and work. But poor writing also brings into question the quality of the scholarship. The book has promise. Like the previous reviewer, I would encourage a good editing job and a second edition. We need these kinds of books.

3.0 out of 5 stars A free tour of basic Christian apologetics, but with an evangelical plea Dec 11 2012
By Muddy Moe - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Understand up front that I am a non-believer, but that I read this book in full and will attempt to review the book on the merits of content and writing style rather than any agenda. I choose the book because I am interested in both apologetics and counter-apologetics and because it was free.

In the following I'll give you an idea of what to expect. If this were a book of fiction, I would post a "spoiler" warning here.

The book appears to be heavily influenced by I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist by Geisler and Turek, by Jim Marshall's website, by William Lane Craig, and to a smaller degree by Michael Behe's thoughts on intelligent design. Along the way he mentions other popular voices in the apologetics community, such as Ray Comfort, Francis Collins, and Christian rapper LeCrae. The reader will be given a short tour through the kalam cosmological argument, the ontological argument, moral arguments for god, and general criticism of evolution or naturalistic "bias" in science. This is the first third or so of the book, which is also the most interesting portion of the book to me by far. The author does about as good of a job as possible restating these arguments. However, the arguments themselves have amble counter arguments and by their nature engage in arguments from ignorance or special pleading. Moreover, even if one accepts a cosmological argument for god, it is quite a leap to conclude that this god must be ominipotent or personal in nature.

And that's where the author heads next with moral arguments for god, arguing that the moral code is written in our conscience. What follows is a rather lengthy defense of Christian Biblical historicity and accuracy. I found this section less interesting, mostly because the logical arguments are less rigorous, relying more on general assertions such that the Bible is well studied and that archaeology confirms its factual historicity. The author glosses over many difficulties with regard to the historicity issues altogether. Moreover, the author wants us to leap from accepting his assertions that the Bible is historically accurate, to accepting the miracles in The Bible, including (of course) the resurrection of Jesus Christ. I think many devout believers would admit that this is a leap of faith, rather than logic.

The last quarter (I'm estimating) of the book is more theological in nature, resting the case that god has been proven to exist, that the Bible's supremacy as the word of god has been proven, and that the claims of Jesus as the resurrected son of god have been proven. The author deals with total depravity of man, heaven, hell, the need for salvation by grace, and the requirement of faith in Christ to obtain that grace. I found this my least favorite part of the book, as I've heard it all before and it is a bit preachy in tone. Moreover, despite the authors' continued stressing of Christ's love for us and desire to save us, the capriciousness of god for damning us all to hell for even the slightest moral imperfection is inescapable. Infinite extreme torture as judgment for finite "sin" is impossible to justify. The author gives it a good shot, but it's a tough stance to take.

Overall the style of the writing was pleasant and sources are attributed well. The author makes his case with passion, but generally overstates the case by comparing acceptance of the existence of god (much less the Christian god) to acceptance of the force of gravity. For some readers, these arguments may be new and impressive. But apologetics is a field where truly new ideas are rare, and all arguments have impressive counters. The existence of god is a subject that has been hotly debated for centuries. This book is a good sampler of popular Christian arguments (particularly of Wm Lane Craig, Geisler and Turek). But it will not settle the debate.

I rate it three stars because the writing is well done and the research is evident. However, it does not rate higher because the Biblical accuracy portion is dull. The author makes assertions for which counter arguments are easy to imagine, but just moves on. Why Christianity is true but other major religions have it all wrong is not explored in any depth. The reader is just told that The Bible is accurate ... the Bible has it right .... no need to look around, because there's only one truth and its in The Bible. Moreover, the book essentially descends into an extended religious tract in the last 25% or so of the book. A casual reader interested only in the apologetics may want to bow out after the moral arguments.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Nov. 30 2013
By Cheryl Ann - Published on Amazon.com

I've been a Christian for many years and have read a lot of books which support the Christian faith and have a particular interest in apologetics. Outside of the Bible itself, this book presents the most clear and convincing argument that I have found in one short volume. I cannot imagine that a nonbeliever who is honestly seeking the truth could read this book and walk away unconvinced.

5.0 out of 5 stars Know the Facts, a Must Read Book! Jan. 17 2012
By CBM Book Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
"Gravity, True For You But Not For Me" by Author Michael Edwards is quite a powerful mini-book that packs the punch, "Big surprises come in little packages," which is an understatement. Perfect for evangelism and originally an e-book, this book addresses every possible question or doubt about Christianity by combining facts, evidence and the truth with biblical principles. This book has the reader examine what is truth, does God exist, can we trust the Bible, did the resurrection really happen, and who did Jesus claim to be. Then by giving a twelve-point conclusion the author ends the journey with a pathway to salvation. Keep several copies of this one in your car, you'll want to hand them out to everyone you meet!

The author states in his opening paragraph of the book, "It's not about religion, it's about truth." The author goes on to explain his purpose for writing the book being that the, "...objective evidence must be considered in order to make an informed decision." Otherwise believing something because your parents believe it, relying on emotions or believing something to be true because you believe it to be true does not make it true; this is called "blind faith," as the author emphatically states. The facts must be examined and as the author continues to write, "Every person deserves at least the chance to examine the facts and make an informed decision."

Compelling, powerful and filled with common sense this book is packed with undeniable factual and scientific basis that clearly state the case for Christianity and why, if you believe or not, the Bible is true for you. Initially, and ingeniously, using the analogy of the law of gravity, the author catches the attention of the reader by stating that the law of gravity is true for everyone whether you have faith in gravity or not; gravity is true for everyone.

In much the same way, the author points the reader to the facts with an easy to read, fast-paced book that examines what truth is, and how best to look at the objective evidence. Clearly and concisely, this book also takes a look at apologetics, as well as the scientific evidence for creation, thereby dispelling the common lies and myths about the universe simply by examination of the evidence. In today's confusing world of many religions the author offers clarity for the reader. While many people believe whatever they are told or that what they believe is truth with no evidence to support that belief, this book urges the reader to base their beliefs on that which is truth and the evidence first before making a decision

This book is real, interesting, states the truth and will give many the knowledge they need to make an informed decision. Written by a man who is truly concerned about your future, a true evangelist at heart, the author wants the readers to know the truth and encourages the reader to make a decision based on truth. A highly recommended read for unbelievers, atheists, skeptics, scientists, evolutionists, and Christians alike. Know the facts, read this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal! Nov. 13 2013

This book took me a month to read as I carefully consumed each piece of scripture and quotes. The sources used were well chosen and state the case for God's existence and our need for the gift given through Christ. I would recommend it to any believer and non-believer alike.
