“This is my second book. At a time when you inhale to say good job, you exhale saying fantastic service.”
Sam Oputa was raised in an environment where religion was never forced. He became a Protestant and then later a practicing Catholic with an interest in religious studies. He attended Bronx Community College and Baruch College of the City University of New York. He also received an MBA in 2005. Sam Oputa is also the author of God Is Not Enough, Messiah Needed.
Most people have at one time or another asked themselves, Why am I here? What is my purpose? It’s a difficult and profound question, and a common conclusion is that we were created for God’s glory. This may be true, but it is not logical. There must be a far more specific reason for our creation. In Sam Oputa’s latest book, he explores this question from many angles—spirituality, religion, psychology, philosophy, and other sciences—but mostly he draws from the Holy Books, which contain a wealth of scientific evidence. The result of years of research and soul-searching, Why Was Man Created? is a fascinating and sometimes controversial study of the age-old question of creation and evolution.
