Product Description

Physician-assisted suicide. Racism. Genetic engineering. Abortion. Poverty. Capital punishment.

Our culture is beset by a host of vexing ethical questions. Are there any foundational moral principles to guide us? If so, where do they come from? Christians say that we can--and should--be guided by principles derived from a right understanding of God. But skeptics and those with differing religious convictions argue that ethics and morality need not have anything to do with the God of the Old and New Testaments. Are they correct? Can right and wrong exist without God? Can we, in fact, be good or bad without God?

In Paul Chamberlain's intriguing, inventive book, these questions are explored by a cast of five: Ted (a Christian) joins Graham (an atheist), Francine (a moral relativist), William (an evolutionist) and Ian (a secular humanist). Together they have been summoned to the home of a mystery host. And together, to the benefit of their host and the reader, they undertake a fascinating examination of truth, conduct, culture--and a few other things that matter.

A finely reasoned philosophical dissertation based on Christian precepts, Can We Be Good Without God? helps believers to understand our worldview and arms the reader with ammunition for discussions on this topic. With a straight-forward style that illuminates profound thought, Blanchard clearly states his points, explaining all terminology as the discussion progresses. His quotes and ideas are carefully based on research, with a final page of notes providing the proofs. The author discusses various worldviews, where they come from, and their modern use; and then he demonstrates how the Christian worldview is the true one. He bases all his Christian arguments firmly in Scripture and shows its significance for today.
International author, teacher, and speaker, John Blanchard’s clear statements and honest discussion make Can We Be Good Without God? understandable to the laymen, and useful to the teacher. Our youth are often bombarded by the world with ideas against God. Those working in public often have these worldly ideas thrown at them. This 40-page booklet gives teachers, parents, and all other Christians some good aids for counteracting those ideas. – Donna Eggett, Christian Book Previews.com

    One of the best available books to evaluate every line of thought pertaining to morality. The language is very simple and is in a dialog mode, an interesting way to read a rather dry/controversial subject. A must read for everyone who wants to know about the existence of God.
