I learned about a new-to-me Lutheran author. 🙂 His name is William “Bill” Schroeder, and this past December he published Arguments for God You Agree With.
Here is the Amazon description along with an endorsement from Rev. Dr. Joel Heck, whom I knew as a child. 🙂
While offering our opinions and philosophies as a defense against anyone trying to convince us there is a God, our attitudes and actions betray us into admitting that He exists, that He is out to get us, and that we need Him to get us. How do I know this? Well, some of it I learned from Calvin and Hobbes. So please, step inside, sit down, and let’s learn from them. In this little book, the readers are challenged to reconsider their views on what someone has called the four most important questions: origin, meaning, morality, and destiny. When you are done reading this book, you will have to decide whether the author is just one more person adding his book to the countless others that fill bookstores and library shelves. Or this book has introduced you to Him, Who is both the Source and the destination of your life; and your life will never be the same. But how will you know until you pick it up and read?
“Most writers who address the atheist or agnostic try to marshal formidable arguments that demonstrate the wrongheadedness of that worldview. Not so this book. You will enjoy the author’s conversational style, his use of the insightful messages of Calvin and Hobbes, the fact that this book is not at all pretentious or stuffy, but one that seeks above all to communicate with people where they are. If you want to understand the Christian message without being preached at, this book will provide that understanding–with a touch of humor. And if readers let down their guard long enough to hear, truly hear, what the author is conveying, they will be richly rewarded.” –Dr. Joel Heck, professor, Concordia University, Texas
Sure sounds promising! 😀
