Item description for A Skeptic's Search for God: Convincing Evidence for His Existence by Ralph Muncaster...
Overview "Convincing Evidence for His Existence"
1,456 hours of Sunday school and church turned Ralph Muncaster into a hard-core athiest. Then he was challenged to honestly investigate the Bible and the facts of modern science. He was stunned. Fact after fact-from biology, history, archaeology, physics-lined up with the Bible's account.
Join Ralph on the intensive personal search that took him-a cynical skeptic with an education in engineering-from disbelief to belief in God and the Jesus of the Bible. Along the way... *you'll encounter the same astounding evidence that the author found during his three-year search. *you'll find solid information that challenges comfortable assumptions and outdated ideas. *your mind will be opened, and your faith will be strengthened.
This book will point you to the facts-and to the God of the universe who is behind them.

Informative Mar 13, 2007
Like others have said here. This is a great book. His story is interesting to say the least. The information (plenty) is amazing. Propechy plays a big part of this as well as it led him on his journey of research. It is also pretty technical in certain areas. He has a video/dvd that is also good and a great companion to this book I think.
Wow! Feb 22, 2007
Awesome read. It skirts on getting a bit technical, but leaves the heavier science to another of his books - "Examine the Evidence"
Good defense for the existence of God May 13, 2006
Ralph Muncaster was a strong skeptic. Upon taking a challenge he tries to see if there is evidence for God. What he finds is that the world is an extremely complex place with many components necessary for life to exit. He finds that the probability for all of these factors to even intitate life on earth would be statistically impossible. He compares life evolving by chance to winning the lottery 270 times in a row , with buying one ticket each time. He also addresses biblical profacy. All of the prophacy in the bible has come true, especially the prophacies concerning Jesus. I am, however, skeptical as to how he came up with the statistical probabiltiy that these prophacies can be fullfilled. But, the probability that all of these fazctors comming together by chance cannot be ignored.
People really do not understand how evolution and natural selection works. A trait does not appear just because the organism needs it. Biological traits occur by chance. Natural selection is based on reproductive fitness. If a trait is present in an indivisual that makes it more reproductively fit then that indivisual will have a higher chance of contributing that trait to the next generation of offspring. Traits do not appear in some indivisuals just because they are "needed". If the environment changes to the point that requires a more adaptive trait, then those with that trait will have a higher reproductive fitness. If that trait is not present in the population then the population can eventually become extict.
The conditions on this planet are just right for life. We are not too far or too close to the sun. We get just the right amount of solar radiation. Even the tilt of the earth's axis is necessary for life. Ralph Munchaster gives a list of all of these factors.
Very enjoyable defense of the faith Jan 14, 2006
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and could see why it took the author years to do his own methodical research. Many of the points about historical, archaeological and scientific evidence I've read in other books, but I still learned a lot. I would have to recommend it to anyone seeking for reasons to believe in Jesus.
Definite food for thought Aug 19, 2005
It is really helpful to have someone who was a stauch skeptic previously lay out the proof that he found for God's existence and power. Especially helpful if you struggle finding the evidence, on top of your faith, to share with non-believers.
