Overview



This funny, tender, and inspiring little book offers 1,001 reminders for the faithful—and for doubters, too.



“There is a God!” Who hasn’t uttered these words in response to life’s true miracles? A glorious sunset. Watching your toddler take her first wobbly steps. And that supreme blessing: a hospital gown that closes all the way. In this book, New York Timesbestselling author Richard Smith and Maureen McElheron identify 1,001 miracles that prove that there is in fact a God, including:



- Watching your little girl struggle with an ice-cream cone that appears bigger than she is

- Fireflies on a June night

- Knowing that your ability to explain the difference between hollandaise sauce and béchamel impresses the hell out of your date



There Is a God! will remind you of all the many things that make life wonderful.

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
"It was hard to resist Richard Smith and Maureen McElheron's book, There Is a God!, particularly because of the subtitle "1,001 Heartwarming (and Hilarious) Reasons to Believe". Actually, some are heartwarming, some funny, and some a little naughty. It's a fun little book, and some of the comments actually do make you think. There is a God! is a charming little book. You can zip through it, or you can pick it up, and think about the little miracles of life. I know the person who will enjoy this, and I'll be giving my copy as a gift. I think you'll want to read it first, though, to identify some of the little things in life that you never thought of as miracles."
—Lesa's Book Critiques

    Not what I expected.

    I was hoping for an uplifting book. Instead it was a list of sort of humorous scenarios that had nothing to do with God. Not all that funny and definitely not uplifting or inspiring. Disappointed.

    Picked this up, could not put it down or quit grinning. If you need a quick read to pick you up, this is just perfect. This is now something I go back to when I need cheering up – it takes me back to the special moments in life worth revisiting. Just got a lot of help with my holiday gift list!
