In Search of Hope: Finding Answers in Uncertain Times

This talk was given soon after Aotearoa was mourning the loss of life and devastating blow to our national innocence, from the Christchurch Mosque attacks. Since then, as a nation, we seem to have suffered one tragedy after another, now finding ourselves in more uncertainty with our whole nation in lock-down to curb the potential devastation of the SARS-CoV-2 virus on our country. We all hunger for a transcendent source of hope, but what is hope and where can it be found? Is there an ultimate and transcendent source of hope relevant to these troubled times?

Thank God for Atheists | Timothy Morgan

“The greatest authors of atheism did more to push me toward belief in God than any Christian apologist writer.”

—Timothy Morgan

After a decade of major disappointments, Timothy Morgan was ready to reject God. Atheism offered an escape—an opportunity to dismiss God permanently. But as Morgan delved into the thinking of great atheists past and present, he was stunned. In book after book, he found their reasons for rejecting God to be intellectually unfulfilling.

In Thank God for Atheists he candidly shares his journey by letting atheists speak for themselves, examining their logic to see whether it holds up or not. Along the way, deals with these key questions:

  • What are the key elements of the atheist worldview?
  • Who are the leading modern-day atheists, and what are they saying?
  • How can you effectively respond to atheism?

You’ll find this a personal and thoughtful book on why the evidence for God is much more compelling than the evidence against Him.
