    The plot of Conversations with a Stranger is at once both simple and difficult to describe. Two men meet; one utterly unconcerned with the question of whether God exists. The other dedicated to proving His existence. An age-old dance played out in a coffee shop between two nameless men, previously unknown to one another. Without names these individuals are difficult to describe. The first could be Anyman, unconcerned with the larger questions of life, thriving on work and routine. It is he who shares this story with us. The second offers to meet the challenge of the first, and provide proofs drawn from notable Christian thinkers and apologists throughout the ages.Debut novelist Larry Tate has penned a brief work that is nevertheless densely written with a firm foundation based upon biblical truths. Tate isnt swilling snake oil; he presents us instead with useful tools for evangelism while inspiring and re-focusing our eyes on the commission Jesus left His followers with. I rarely re-read fiction, but the comprehensive notes to the text provide detailed explanations of each of the proofs for Gods existence allowing for further study. This one is a keeper and I intend to dig deeper in order to make them my own and to use them myself.The arguments presented are drawn from the work of Blaise Pascal, St. Thomas Aquinas, Henri Frederic Ameil, St. Anselm and scripture itself.While the apologetics angle is certainly a drawing card, the heart of the novel is faith. Our standing with God is not determined by our intellectual assent to arguments for His existence, or even in mentally acknowledging the claims of Christ. Rather it is that elusive gift, bestowed by God Himself, that effects the transformation. Still we must ever labour in the harvest, planting seeds, stirring up questions and encouraging conversation lets get busy!

    Excellent read. I sat down and could not stop until I finished the novel. If you question if there is a God, or know someone who is not walking with the Lord, this book is a must. You will love the surprise ending.

Author/Artist Review

    Tell us a little about yourself.  A business owner for over thirty-five years. Larry and his wife, Ginger have been married for over thirty-seven years.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I wanted to simplify often complex philosophical arguments for God's existence

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  Although the arguments for God's existence are quite convincing, there is much more to be learned about having a belief in God than facts and logic alone.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  There is one common underlying purpose shared by all professing believers. This book has been helpful in understanding that purpose
