Overview

Is God relevant? In this intriguing work, internationally renowned author and public speaker Luis Palau tackles what noted historian Will Durant calls "the greatest question of our time"--whether we can live without God. Admittedly, many individuals today want to go it alone, without God. Either they feel no need for God, or they don't want God in their lives for some reason--perhaps because of a bad experience with organized religion. Or perhaps some have doubts because God seems to be outdated or contrary to current thought. At the heart of such doubts are intellectual questions raised originally by some of modern history's most influential and outspoken atheists and agnostics.

Yet despite whatever doubts exist, as we near the turn of the millennium interest in faith and spirituality is as strong as it has ever been, and it continues to grow. Noted religion pollster George Barna says, "Americans are probably more interested in spiritual matters than they have been in any other time in the past forty years." In this book, Luis Palau shows how God is not an outdated idea but a powerful, personal force that can transform our troubled times and guide us into the coming millennium.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The timing of this book's publication just three months after that of Billy Graham's autobiography (Just As I Am) may be significant. Palau has preached at more evangelistic meetings in more countries than anyone else but Graham, and if anyone is poised to pick up Graham's mantle, it is Palau. This book is the summary of his beliefs and their philosophical underpinnings. Firing off hundreds of quoted sound-bites from writers ancient and modern, Palau builds his case for what he calls "classic Christianity," or, more accurately, "conversion Christianity": a personal, individualistic, Bible-based, life-changing faith in Jesus Christ. But Palau often sounds like he's fighting the last war. In combating a rationalistic atheism, he pays too little attention to contemporary spirituality movements. Perhaps this is because he expects that "if the current interest in spirituality ends up becoming nothing more than a rather bizarre fad, atheism may roar back to life with even more devastating results sometime within the next generation and a half." Crossings Book Club selection (July)
Library Journal
Touted as the next Billy Graham, international evangelist Palau has a following of millions through TV and radio broadcasts to 95 countries. In this first book for a trade audience, he sums up his message on God.
From the Publisher
"Luis Palau is one of God's most gifted evangelists in the world today, and a man for whom I have the greatest possible love and respect."
-Billy Graham
