The Thinking Person's Guide to God
Overcoming the Obstacles to BeliefBook - 1996
Author Tom Harpur asked the readers of his syndicated newspaper column on ethics and religion for help with some research. He invited them to submit brief descriptions of their stumbling blocks to faith, spirituality, and religion. Soon scores of letters flooded in from readers who would like to have a vital faith in God (regardless of denomination or religion) but honestly cannot because of some doubts or difficulties. C.S. Lewis's Screwtape Letters was the guide for thoughtful Christians in the seventies. In a similar manner, Tom Harpur paves the way for today's seekers. He replies to some of these most troubling questions in his book, The Thinking Person's Guide to God. Is belief in God unscientific? Is the only path to salvation through Jesus? What about people of other faiths? Is the Bible as the Word of God a credible belief today? Why is there so much evil in the world? Does God hate women?About the AuthorTom Harpur, columnist for the Toronto Sunday Star, Anglican priest, Rhodes Scholar, and former teacher of Greek and the New Testament, is a prominent writer on religious and ethical issues. He is the author of several books: Always on Sunday, For Christ's Sake, God Help Us, Harpur's Heaven and Hell, and, most recently, The Uncommon Touch. Tom Harpur lives near Toronto, Canada.
