Item description for REVISITING GOD by Joseph B. Onyango Okello...
Many Christians find it difficult to follow the standard arguments for God's existence. Without downplaying the importance of such arguments, this book tries to provide alternative reasons for believing in God, reasons that could be used as supplements for the standard arguments. First, it notes that reasons for belief in God can be derived from one unlikely place - from the lips of the unbeliever. It then considers the phenomenon of answered prayer as another simple reason for belief, thereby demonstrating that belief in God can be acquired not only at the theoretical level, but also at the experiential level. Other avenues are also explored, including the state of meaninglessness in which unbelievers find themselves, as well as the powerful evidence for the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Taken together, these reasons make belief in God's existence quite sensible, noting that all of life fundamentally hangs on it. Joseph B. Onyango Okello is the author of The Case for Miracles: A Defense of God's Action in the World, as well as The Quest for Truth - a book he co-authored with James W. Gustafson. He holds an MA and a PhD in Philosophy from the University of Kentucky. He also holds a Master of Divinity Degree and an MA in Church Music from Asbury Theological Seminary. He has taught philosophy at Asbury Theological Seminary, Asbury College and the University of Kentucky. In addition to his teaching duties, Joseph is also the pastor of Duncan Chapel at Jimtown in Lexington Kentucky. He lives in Wilmore, Kentucky, with his wife, Sophie.
