If There Is No God: Glimpses of God in Everyday LifeIf There Is No God: Glimpses of God in Everyday Life by Mark Winter

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

An interesting little book, a little corny at times, and really not something you give to a skeptic. A clearly Christians-only piece, since there are no “arguments” per se, but rather, just interesting insights. Brief, cute, humorous, and sometimes thought-provoking. Gems include the amazing thing that a little-known carpenter would still be remembered (and worshiped!) 2000 years after he lived, and that the freethinker Bertrand Russell admitted that the Christian idea of the love of God is the only hope for humanity. There are many scientific trivia that can be gleaned as well. The last insight really says it all, if there is no God, what’s the point?

Surely every man walks about like a shadow;
Surely they busy themselves in vain;
He heaps up riches,
And does not know who will gather them.
And now, Lord, what do I wait for?
My hope is in You.

-Psalm 39:6-7
