BEYOND THE COMFORT ZONE: THE WAR THAT NEVER ENDS
A WORD FROM THE AUTHOR
A BOOK LIKE NO OTHER
ARE YOU AN AGNOSTIC? If so, you have lots of company-- over 59 million agnostics in the US alone. (Source: World Almanac and Book of Facts for 2024, page 702) I used to be an agnostic myself. A true agnostic, I mean. A true agnostic is someone searching for answers-- or at least open to answers. And by this I mean answers to the biggest question of all: IS THERE A GOD?
Wouldn't it be great if we could turn to a source that provides proof of God? Has there ever been a book which PROVES the reality of God? Not by using abstract, philosophical arguments, but using objective FACTS-- concrete facts which can be CHECKED and VERIFIED?
I've looked at many books which claim to prove God is real. "The universe is well-ordered, so it must have had a Creator." "The mathematical odds of random evolution producing a human being are a quadrillion to one." I've seen a lot of arguments like those. Many are logical, but some of them sound so much like abstract "brain twisters" that they have nothing to do with the real world.
This book is different.
It proves that God is real-- not by using abstract arguments, but concrete and verifiable FACTS. Not just any god, but the God of the Bible. Not only that He exists, but that He is an UNFADING PRESENCE in the modern world.
HOW CAN FACTS PROVE THE EXISTENCE OF GOD?
It's not as incredible as it sounds. God isn't some abstract idea like the "law of averages," or a random force of nature like a blizzard or flood, but an infinitely intelligent Being with a mind and a personality. And like most intelligent persons, He makes plans and carries them out. This includes the plans He has for humanity.
In other words, God shapes history-- by intervening at times and places of His choosing. Sometimes He does so in subtle ways, sometimes in wildly spectacular ways. All I've done in this book is to describe some of His direct interventions in human events. I'll give you a few examples.
During the American Revolutionary War, direct interventions by God changed the outcome of critical situations at least three times. On two of those occasions, the Continental Army could easily have been captured or destroyed by British forces if God had not intervened. On the third occasion, the attempted escape of General Cornwallis from Yorktown was prevented-- sealing the British Army's fate and bringing about the end of the war. These are just a few examples of the many times where God has changed the outcome of major historical events.
There are other times when God hasn't been so subtle. On occasion He also performs astounding miracles-- events which defy any kind of natural explanation. Some of these miracles have been literally spectacular, done publicly with hundreds, or even thousands of eyewitnesses. A skeptic might think that science could easily debunk such claims. But when these miracles are subjected to scientific investigation, the findings only CONFIRM their miraculous nature.
Many of these interventions in history, and also some of His spectacular public miracles have been documented in this book. All these PROVEN FACTS can be readily verified by countless sources-- with documentation as easily accessible as your smartphone.
Of course, any hardened skeptic (or atheist) will start chanting "coincidence" when confronted with such facts. But these events all had many witnesses, and they've been well documented in history. A great many criminals have been sent to prison on the testimony of eyewitnesses. Should eyewitness testimony be dismissed? (I'm sure many of those criminals would think so!)
WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?
It means that God's actions in history are not confined to the pages of the Bible. His presence isn't hidden in the mists of ancient times. There are a great many occasions where He has intervened in more recent history. And these events are all well-documented facts.
Atheists, of course, aren't interested in facts. On the contrary, they're afraid to look at them. Their atheism makes them cowards. For them, doubt and cynicism are the only answers to the great questions of life. For narrow-minded individuals such as that, God can never be anything but an empty word.
