About the Book

As a Christian you might have asked yourself questions like: How could a benevolent God, “our Father,” punish anyone in fire eternally? How could billions of non-members of my church all be going to hell? How can there be three “Gods” in one God? How can Jesus be both human and divine? Why is the “kingdom of God” in heaven, but we pray for it to “come on earth”? Why is the Bible infallible when it’s littered with textual contradictions? The talking serpent clearly relegates Adam and Eve’s story to the realm of tales. Since they never existed, how could they have committed original sin? So how could we inherit it? And what did Jesus need to redeem us from? It’s been almost two thousand years: will Jesus ever come back to earth? How can Jesus be inside the Eucharist? Faith and Reason shows why and how we’ve come to believe such oddities. “The truth will set you free!” John 8:32 (NIV)
