Item description for What If God Exists? by Jack Blanch...
If God exists, then our lives take on more significance. Our lives may not end with "delete all" upon death. We may take on a permanent, eternal quality connected with the life of God. If we are sure of that, we make different choices, reorganize our values, and get excited about today, tomorrow, and eternity Jack Blanch reasons with us through the significant issues with an open-minded approach to God. Jack's personal experience of confusion and his ensuing search and discovery give a realistic backdrop to our own search. His examples are from real life, his own and others. He does not give us the answers; he helps us reason our way to our own conclusions.

Reviews - What do customers think about What If God Exists??
Simple and not well-researched Feb 28, 2006
The language is quite misogynistic . The author uses words such as "man" to refer to both males and females and "mankind" instead of "humankind". He attempts to dismiss many scientific theories with little or no scholarly research. While I may agree with some of his opinions(and others I do not agree with), it is due to other readings. He attempts to make huge statments and then uses a paragraph of size fifteen font to defend them. Both my husband and I are professors at Indiana University and neither of us found his arguements to be the least bit scholarly.
Doubt Should Bring Investigation Feb 21, 2006
This book is the story of one man's quest for answers to life's meaning. Blanch deals with the historic problems of religion, obstacles to believing in God and obstacles to believing in evolution. Jack introduces scientific data and historic facts that parallel evidence found in the scriptures.
He than introduces the claim of scripture to be the word of God. He leads the reader to consider the testimony of Bible that proclaims that Jesus Christ is God in human form.
Blanch shares his own discovery of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as the result of his quest. In the final chapter he shares the story of another man's search and the transforming power of Christ in his life.
Although the author is addressing the academic and university reader, he writes in a straightforward style that is easy to understand. The flow and development of the theme is natural and leads the reader to form their own conclusions.
This book is designed for those who are on a quest, in search of answers to the meaning and purpose of life. The book also provides the Christian reader with an opportunity to solidify their own personal faith. It is an excellent book to share with a friend who is considering the claims of Christ.
