From the Publisher

“What may be known of God is manifest,” wrote Paul in his letter to the Romans. In other words, the evidence is plain. However, Christians can get lost. They wrestle with doubt, and they can be overcome by the fear that what they believe is foolish. Author Peter Zelinski knows this doubt and fear well; he faces it himself. In “How Do We Know God Is Real?”, Zelinski provides a trail out of this dark wood. He offers the argument based in reason by which the believer can return to knowing that God certainly exists. “Our faith in him is built on a more substantial foundation than just our fragile hope,” Zelinski writes. As Paul’s line to the Romans suggests, we can infer the reality of God from our experience of the world. In fact, we don’t have to look far. Zelinski reveals that our very experience of self provides the case for God’s reality. His short book is a letter of reassurance to every Christian who struggles with doubt, which might mean that it is written to every Christian.

Which Comes First, Big Cities or Big Gods?

Warriors among the Kwara’ae, a collection of tribal communities indigenous to the Solomon Islands, sacrificed pigs before battle. The tradition granted the combatants, so the belief went, aid from heroic ancestral spirits—like the mighty A’orama, a fierce fighter in Kwara’ae folklore. For every man who prepared to shed blood, a hog met its end.1 Any non-superstitious observer might regard this ritual as a costly habit. Why give offerings when one can eat them instead? This puzzle is not unique to the Kwara’ae. Why pray? Or erect and attend churches, mosques, temples? Or observe holidays and fa

The Hidden God: One man’s path to knowing less about God.

David Friedman moved from Denver to the Israeli city of Safed in 1979 to live as a Haredi, or ultra Orthodox Jew. At 29, he and his wife Miriam already had four children. He enrolled at a yeshiva where he drew a salary to study Talmud. It seemed like a splendid arrangement, a path into a life of spiritual consciousness. Friedman plunged into his studies headlong, mastering difficult texts in Hebrew and Aramaic. “It was my job,” he told me. “I was pretty serious about getting there on time, spending the whole day studying like we were supposed to do, and also serious about prayer.” But as month

Is Santa Claus a God?

Santa Claus occupies a strange place in Christian belief. On the one hand, only children seem to really believe he exists; on the other, he gets a great deal more attention than many other purported supernatural beings, such as angels or Satan.  Does Santa Claus count as a god of the Christian religion? (From an anthropological point of view, many different kinds of supernatural beings can be classified as “gods.”) Christians are likely to say no, in part because Christianity styles itself as a monotheistic religion. I say “styles itself,” because there are several ways in which it looks quit
