Atheist’s guide to God
For those who fear science will rob them of both God and Christian community, this work may offer much-needed hope that Christianity and science can coexist. In Finding God in the Waves , he employs this gift on a whole new scale by explaining the science of how to walk with God—especially for those who doubt God is real at all. Mike is the rare storyteller who can make you laugh, tear up, and feel a sense of wonder, all on the same page—and in this delightful book, he has delivered an essential, unprecedented read on the role contemplation plays in how we can know God, even in an age of skepticism.
Funny, intelligent, and disarmingly honest, Finding God in the Waves gives voice to a generation of faithful skeptics and masterfully navigates the tricky terrain of faith, science, belief, and experience in a way that honors the humanity of atheist and believer alike. With this work, Mike McHargue has established himself as one of the most thoughtful and necessary Christian voices of our time.

About The Book. About the Author. Both featured the cosmological argument, which is based on cause and effect.
Though Rowe didn't believe in God, at the end of the book, he writes that the cosmological argument could lead someone to believe in God. Geisler helped me see that there were Christians who thought about these things with a lot of depth. His thinking is very clear, organized, and systematic, so I was able to follow his logic and that was instrumental in helping me believe again. Giesler went into detail describing the ultimate cause of things.
I think of my journey back to God as clues that led me to more clues. I discovered recent scientific breakthroughs about the fine-tuning of the universe, the developing of virtue, the value of natural irregularities, soul-making, and more. These things, along with my questions, helped me shake off my limited view of God. Your latest book provides a step-by-step guide to Christianity through reason.
Does faith play a role in Christianity to you? There are different definitions of faith.
How Oxford and Peter Singer drove me from atheism to Jesus
I think that reason is from God. It points to God. Jesus Himself pointed to the evidence of his miracles to give people a reason to believe Him. I think faith fundamentally comes from trust, but also that trust can be based on evidence. Reason is a form of evidence. The more that I study philosophy, the more I see that points to God.
The evidence is so powerful. A lot of it is sociological. Many of my skeptical friends felt judged and condemned by Christians when they stopped believing. Instead they gave me resources, and that helped me come back to my faith. Others who feel alienated find a group of like minded people, and they derive a sense of virtue about being skeptical.
