How to Know God Exists, Scientific Proof of God

by Ray Comfort

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt

Review:

How to Know God Exists, Scientific Proof of God was written by Ray Comfort, an atheist who became a Christian through his study of the Bible and science. Comfort is an entertaining writer on the subject which is often stuffy and unappealing, adding touches of humor to his book which relates his journey to the truth. He explains in detail the circumstances and the scientific findings that changed his mind about God.

Comfort discusses what he calls the “absurdities” of the theory of evolution, and claims there are no scientific proofs for the theory. He asserts that most scientists who do believe in evolution do so with a strong faith which is not based on facts or scientific proofs. Comfort discusses mutation, Darwin’s Origin of the Species, alleged mistakes in the Bible, and common objections to Christianity. He talks about the fossil record and what he calls “wishful speculations.” He lists and writes about famous scientists who believed in a creator.

Comfort was considered the world’s most notorious atheist, yet he now believes that there is a God, and that God is the creator of earth and of all life. Comfort discusses the four main world religions and explains why he has come to believe in Christianity over Buddhism, Islam, and Hinduism.

Comfort studied the Bible and eventually was convinced that the Bible gave the most reasonable explanation of life. In one chapter, Comfort lists discoveries that scientists have made that were revealed in the Bible all along. For example, he sites Ecclesiastes 1:6, which tells about wind making circuits around the earth. Additional study resources and the end note listings in the back of the book would be great for a reader attempting to come to a greater understanding of scientific issues.

I fully enjoyed reading this book and plan to have my sons read it also. It is suitable especially for teens to help them decide where they stand on the issue of creation vs. evolution. -- Elece Hollis, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

Book Jacket:

With a recent wave of books on atheism becoming New York Times best-sellers, the God debate is heating up. Because of the implications, it's the most significant question of all time: Does God exist, or does He not?

In this compelling book, Ray Comfort argues the case with simple logic and common sense. If there is a God, surely He has made His presence known so that anyone—young or old, scholar or schoolchild—can find Him.

By applying basic logic to three clear evidences for the existence of God, Comfort will help you to:

1. Examine the case for evolution and see what top scientists are really saying about the theory

2. Explore the facts that led the world's most notorious atheist to acknowledge a Creator

3. Investigate the evidence to discover who God is

Through 100% scientific proof, you can know God exists.
