The Invisible God

by Nicholas Holan

Overview

Billions of people around the world identify themselves as Christians. The Bible is accepted as the foundation for that belief. I examine the events that are purported to have happened in the first book of the holy text, Genesis, to determine if they are compatible with our knowledge of how the universe operates and to see what God truly considers important.

Description

Billions of people around the world identify themselves as Christians. It is the world’s largest religion. The Bible is accepted as the foundation for that belief. I examine the events that are purported to have happened in Genesis to determine if they are compatible with our knowledge of how the universe operates and to see what God truly considers important. I also look to see if conflicts arise between the actions of God and what we in an advanced society would define as good, moral behavior. We've all heard the story of Adam and Eve, Noah and the flood, Abraham and Isaac. What about the story of Jacob wrestling with God and winning? What about the story of Judah, Er, Onan, Shelah, and Tamar? What is the real story behind Sodom and Gomorrah? Many more untold stories of Genesis are examined in this book. No time is wasted with pointless philosophical debate. It is a concise and humorous inspection of the world's most sacred book.

About the author

I am someone who is concerned when he hears a fellow American claim that a "divine command morality" justifies the slaughtering of innocent children. I felt that statements like that should not go unaddressed. So, I decided to write. I hope you enjoy!
