You’re not sure what you think about God. You’re not an atheist – you’re not that confident of his non-existence. You’re not a Christian or a Muslim, though you’ve got nothing against either of them. You prefer to identify as a humble agnostic. Some would say you’re sitting on the fence, but why not? It’s a comfortable enough place to be. Why can’t we all just admit we don’t know?
Yet sometimes you do have questions. Where did we come from? What happens when we die? Can anyone make sense of all the suffering in the world? What’s it all for? You wouldn’t mind answers to some of them, as long as no one tried to brainwash you. You’re not 100% sure that you enjoy not being sure.
“Investigate the evidence, explore their reasoning and consider the most coherent explanation for the realities of life and death and the impact of Jesus on those realities. I think you will find the book, short though it is, both challenging and compelling.”
Sir Jeremy Cooke, retired High Court Judge; International Justice of the Singapore International Commercial Court and of the Dubai International Financial Centre Court
“I wish someone had given me this book fifty years ago so that I hadn't wasted ten years of my life failing to know God.”
Peter Robinson, Professor of Computer Technology, University of Cambridge
“As I read this short book, to my surprise I found myself subconsciously making a list of family and friends I was desperately hoping would read it! Why was that? First, because Sach and Gemmell have both taken very seriously and listened very hard to the questions of sceptics and agnostics. And second, because they have answered their questions with logic, learning and not a small dose of fun. I thoroughly recommend this eminently engaging and very useful book.”
Rico Tice, Associate Minister at All Souls Church, Langham Place, Co-author of Christianity Explored
“So much more than a presentation of evidence, this book is a compelling and winsome argument for why sceptics should embrace asking questions of Jesus, and why the answers mean it’s worth the effort. I enjoyed it all, and found myself strengthened in my own faith as I read. A gift for sceptics and believers alike – buy it and share it!”
Amy Wicks, Associate Pastor for Women’s Discipleship, St Silas Church Glasgow.
