Life’s big questions
Ever wonder if there’s any purpose in life?
Or asked yourself: What makes a good life? Can I know right and wrong? Is there a God, and does God love me?
I have researched facts about life’s big questions, and gathered accounts of people on the journey.
I hope this may stimulate your thinking and help you think things through.

Faith for the future
Download the free 32-page PDF (click on link and save PDF file). Written primarily for those doubting the faith they were raised in, it outlines why we might choose to believe in God and what we might believe about him, and so may also interest thoughtful unbelievers.
It covers intellectual and personal reasons why we might doubt the truth of christianity, and why we might choose to believe. It gives thoughtful and maybe surprising answers to fundamental questions:
- Is there a God and does he love me?
- Is Jesus really the son of God?
- Is the Bible truly God’s Word?
Then it addresses how a thoughtful 21st century christian might understand the Bible in this scientific age, things modern people can’t believe any more, and ethical questions such as patriarchy and gender.

“I just wanted to say that I really appreciate your blog. I’m, I suppose, what one would call an agnostic …. and have found myself pondering those very typically human questions. I find your blog very honest and am delighted by your own analytical style and your tendancy to provide multiple views on any given subject. I also find your willingness to admit doubt on any line of thought on any given subject truly liberating to see”

“This is a great post and I think clearly frames the issues in an appropriate way. …. it seems you have been doing some great work with your blog. I really like the format and writing.”

“If the Christian God is real then I think the conception you espouse is among the more viable options out there, and that’s a testament to your willingness to allow the data to inform your theology.”

“As a new christian, this has become one of my favorite sites from the first visit. Fantastic information, would love to see a book on all this out of you! …. I am just finding this blog but I love it already! I grew up in a very science heavy background and never really believed in God.”

“I teach a college level course on mysticism. This is the single, best article on the subject I have found. It is fair, rational, well-documented. Put simply, it hits the nail on the head.”

“As far as knowledgeable Christians that you could reach out to, there’s an Aussie who goes by “unkleE” …. I was raised in a fundamentalist version of Christianity that preached biblical inerrancy …. unkleE’s theology is much more liberal/moderate (and preferable) than the one I grew up with. While unkleE and I often disagree, I have a great deal of respect for him as a person and as a Christian. He’s sincere, and that counts for a lot in my book. So if you’d like the input of a Christian, I highly recommend him.”
