Does God exist? Is there a purpose to my life? Is goodness a divine reality or simply a relative value that each culture defines for itself? Is there life beyond this earthly existence? Are Homo sapiens more than quarks and atoms; more than material properties? Is love a reality or a feeling?
Offerings is a collection of brief but thought-provoking writings that vindicate religious faith. It will be an especially helpful resource for:
- Small group discussions and leaders of worship
- Adults not satisfied with trite devotional guides, but willing to wrestle with a faith that is rational and accepting of scientific discoveries
- The growing number of "nones" in the United States and Europe, who, while not believers, are open to be challenged by the possibility that there really is a God
Offerings affirms a God whose glory is revealed in creation, whose mighty acts are made known in sacred scripture, and who demands justice, love, and faithfulness in human life.
If someone asks, "Would you like corn flakes or raisin bran?" you can reasonably answer, "I don't care. It doesn't matter. Either one is fine with me." But with the ultimate issues of life, you cannot sit on the fence. You cannot pretend that a decision is not required. You must make a decision.
What are you waiting for?
