From award-winning author Bill Myers comes a suspense novel featuring a philosophy professor who programs himself into a computer-generated world in order to save society from a computer virus—and its own immorality.
"Full of heart, suspense, and intelligence, The God Hater engagingly illustrates the futility of man-made beliefs as well as the worlds desperate need for a God who offers hope, guidance, and help."
" The God Hater is more than just a great read."
A cranky philosophy professor loves to shred the faith of incoming freshmen. He is chosen by a group of scientists to create a philosophy for a computer-generated world exactly like ours. Much to his frustration, every model he introduces—from Darwinism, to Existentialism, to Relativism, to Buddhism—fails. The only way to preserve his cyber world is to introduce laws from outside their system through a Law Giver.
Going against everything he believes in, the professor realizes that the only way to save the computer world is to create a character like himself to personally explain the rules that govern their society. So now there are two of him—the one in real life and the one online. Unfortunately, a rival has released a virus into the virtual community and the professor realizes he must sacrifice himself to save their computer world, and, as he finally understands, our own.

In The God Hater by Bill Myers, Nicholas Mackenzie gets a chance to find out what a person would do if he could become God.
With his computer-wiz younger brother, Travis, Mackenzie creates a digital world exactly like our own. Travis and his fellow computer geeks fill the man-made world with real, thinking and computer-generated humans. To Travis, the digital world is a moneymaker, allowing international companies to predict how products will sell to the public. To Mackenzie, the digital world is a chance to prove his atheistic theories. A philosophy professor, Mackenzie programs the digital world with nearly every atheistic worldview. But no matter the worldview, the digital humans destroy their homes and kill each other. Mackenzie reluctantly realizes, as crazy as it seems to him, he must interact with the digital humans to save them from destruction. Against everything he believes in, the cynic professor finds himself a virtual savior.

Targeted to young adult and above, The God Hater is fast paced, stimulating, and God-honoring as it bears out the truth that only the fool says in his heart there is no God. I highly recommend the novel to readers who enjoy intellectually fast-paced plots. Complete with car chases, gunfights and near death situations, The God Hater grabs the reader and doesnt let go. The God Hater is one novel every story-lover will want to read. Estee Wells, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
