Imagine that your assignment is to write about what you observe for future generations. What a daunting job that would be! Will your observations make sense to those who come after you? This was the dilemma of messengers from ancient times. The gods were wowing them with events they could not understand, and the people recorded what they saw. But often we interpret these recordings without applying logic, science, or texts. Many people believe what they believe because it is generally accepted. Some only accept interpretations that are confirmed by their version of The Holy Books, and they consider any use of reason in religious matters to be misleading and impermissible. According to such people, man is too mortal to understand the ways of God. In God Is Not Enough—a groundbreaking and thought-provoking book—the author attempts to deconstruct the puzzles surrounding the concept of God. Who is He? Why were we created? Jesus Christ is the Son of God, but which God? And are these questions really unanswerable?
