Christian apologetics remains a popular and widely read genre, but even the best-sellers in the field can come across as scholarly, heady, and hard to decipher, like they are introducing a confusing new language for faith. It doesn't have to be so difficult.
In Hardwired, James Miller uses humor, metaphor, and whimsy to empower you to find God without a PhD. In fun and readable prose, Miller asserts that apologetics is not about investigating and testing evidence of God. It is, he says, about plugging into what you already know about God and yourself: mining knowledge that has been forgotten, unrealized, or - perhaps - ignored.
Our very humanity proves God's existence. Whether we are seeking faith, are questioning faith, have some faith or none at all, we need only to examine our lives, our human existence, to find a clear explanations for the "case for God." If you're seeking reason, confidence, or the language to effectively communicate what you believe, look no further. Hardwired is that book, that confidence, that accessible wisdom - and that language!
It's time to plug in.
There is a vast Christian audience that longs for clear explanations in their case for God that gives them reason, confidence, and the language to effectively communicate their belief. Hardwired is that book, that confidence, that accessible wisdom and that language!
Christian apologetics remains a popular and widely-read genre, with works like The Case for Christ selling millions of copies and Reasonable Faith making inroads into academic discussion. However, those works often rely on scholars to give them a confusing new language for their own faith. Hardwired is altogether different.
Miller begins with the language of our own lives: seekers / questioners / Nones and Somes who need only to examine their lives, their human existence, to find God. Like a baseball player who has delved into physics while simply trying to get on base, humanity has inferred Gods existence from daily life.
Building on the biblical principle that Gods existence is plain in what He has made, Hardwired makes the case for our natural lives giving us a language for Gods existence. Filled with humor, metaphor, and whimsy, Hardwired will empower the layperson to find God without a Ph.D. Its readable and fun, even as it rests on a credible, scholarly foundation.
