Description


The Man Who Figured Out God? takes you on a journey of ideas to the very heart of the God concept - out beyond belief to an intriguing destination within your own mind. 

Two old friends, one alive, one not, set out on an exciting, entertaining and challenging ride that is at once a renewal of friendship and an exploration of one of life's great questions: Suppose there is no God? What then could possibly explain the ongoing belief in one across time, space, and the many and varied cultures throughout the history of mankind? Rob Victor's determination to answer that question leads him on a journey of discovery to a powerful solution that questions the very belief in belief itself. Is Rob The Man Who Figured Out God? Rob's best friend Jason is about to find out. 

Following Rob's death in an unexplained boat explosion Jason is gifted an audio tape on which Rob has recorded his fascinatingly unorthodox answer to the "God problem" he's been working on since he and Jason became best friends back in their college days. 

To honor Rob's memory, Jason decides to listen to the tape during a week-long road trip that relives a spirited expedition the two of them shared 25 years earlier. As Rob travels along on Jason's unexpectedly adventure-prone ride, Jason, in turn, rides along on Rob's thought-provoking journey to his surprising conclusion - a conclusion that astoundingly also explains the real motive behind Rob's death. 

Where will the ride take you? Is Rob The Man Who Figured Out God?

J
The Man Who Figured Out God? Reviewed by Christian Sia for Readers' Favorite The Man Who Figured Out God? by John Fischer is an intriguing, well-plotted and well-written novel with visionary themes. It begins when Jason received the devastating news about the death of his friend in a fatal accident. The details indicate that it happened during an afternoon sight-seeing tour on Late Michigan off Chicago’s Navy Pier. Rob had been showing the city to his friends when the tourist boat exploded, killing all on board. At the same moment, the Pope died in Rome and under mysterious circumstances. Jason Williams received an audiotape in which Rob explains a quirky solution he’s been working on, a solution to the God-man-mind puzzle, a project he has been working on for years. Listening to the audio will lead him to uncover more than he bargained for and to understand the link between Rob’s death and that of the Pope. But can he figure out God? The Man Who Figured Out God? by John Fischer is a brilliant novel that starts with a bang, a strong opening, a moment of crisis, and takes the reader on a journey that is intriguing. Jason is a great protagonist who has suffered a devastating loss. The death of his friend, who just recently got engaged, shakes him to the core. He is determined to honor his friend and that is why he sets out to uncover what he had been working on. The writing is suspenseful, the prose crisp and filled with powerful descriptions. I particularly enjoyed how this author explores and captures the emotions of the characters. The Man Who Figured Out God? is fast-paced, tightly written, and downright entertaining. Read more
