Math professor and atheist Jill McGavock feels helpless. Her mother is losing the mental capabilities that made her what she is--a brilliant pathologist. When Jill turns to colleague Sam Bakalis for advice, he challenges her to make "Pascal's wager"--to "bet" that God exists by living as if he does. Faith or unbelief; which will Jill choose? 352 pages, softcover from Multnomah.
