Publishers Description Is God relevant? In this intriguing work, internationally renowned author and public speaker Luis Palau tackles what noted historian Will Durant calls "the greatest question of our time"--whether we can live without God. Admittedly, many individuals today want to go it alone, without God. Either they feel no need for God, or they don't want God in their lives for some reason--perhaps because of a bad experience with organized religion. Or perhaps some have doubts because God seems to be outdated or contrary to current thought. At the heart of such doubts are intellectual questions raised originally by some of modern history's most influential and outspoken atheists and agnostics.
Yet despite whatever doubts exist, as we near the turn of the millennium interest in faith and spirituality is as strong as it has ever been, and it continues to grow. Noted religion pollster George Barna says, "Americans are probably more interested in spiritual matters than they have been in any other time in the past forty years." In this book, Luis Palau shows how God is not an outdated idea but a powerful, personal force that can transform our troubled times and guide us into the coming millennium.
"Luis Palau is one of God's most gifted evangelists in the world today, and a man for whom I have the greatest possible love and respect." --Billy Graham

Wondering About a Relationship With Christ? Dec 26, 1999
For the last couple of months my wife and I have been on our way back to developing a personal relationship with God. I felt my previous agnostic beliefs were not fullfilling enough for me anymore. However, I did have many unresolved questions about Jesus, Christianity, and the belief of God in general.Reading this book helped me sort out all of those thoughts in an organized, intelligent manner. Palau does not "preach" in this book. Rather he explains all viewpoints and their counter arguments from religious and skeptical points of view, and tries to shed some light on the subjects. I found it to be very helpful as a somewhat "confused seeker" of the truth. As a result of reading this book, my wife and I have entered into a relationship with God and Jesus Christ and have found new happiness and peace in our hearts.
God IS Revelant Indeed Jun 29, 1999
I recently read this book and enjoyed it very much. It didn't unfold like I expected as the author talks at length about the belief systems of atheists, several well known individuals in particular. That I found that to be most clear and informative.
Great! Excellent! Very Good! Apr 4, 1998
I finished reading this book a few days ago and I really enjoyed it because Luis Palau wrote to so many different audiences. Is not for the Christian alone, but for those who question or might question the existance of a God who is concerned and relevant to what happens in out society. It was well written. I guarantee you won't fall asleep reading it. One thing I like is the fact that Mr. Palau is not trying to make you believe what he is trying to portrait but he just lay it down on the table and you'll decide whether the God Christians preach is real or false, is relevant or not to human lives. One little detail that bugged me about this book was the fact he didn't give credit to Jesus Christ for giving him the inspiration to write this book. I believe Jesus Christ must be first on the credit list. Other than this, this book should be part of your library.
