Mr. Currie discusses how it can be difficult to share the reasons he believes in God, which is what motivated him to write this book. The main thesis is that it makes as much sense scientifically and logically to believe in God as to not believe. He accepts that you may disagree with his choice, but hopes you will consider that belief is not necessarily a delusion or something that ruins everything. With some discussion about what we mean by belief and God, he presents the reasons and evidence that support his belief. Some reasons to believe are based on things he doesn’t believe. He doesn’t believe that nothing produces something, that matter has always existed, or that intelligence, consciousness, emotions and a sense of morality arose from inanimate matter. He believes that there is evidence of design in creation and life that points to God. These things require an autonomous, intelligent, external to our time and space entity, God. He also believes that the arguments against God are not adequate to negate the plausibility of sensible belief. He believes in free will. A person can choose to believe or not. Either choice is based on a person’s understanding of the evidence along with faith.


Mr. Currie did undergraduate studies in philosophy and theology at Lincoln Christian University. He received a B.A. and M.A. in psychology from the University of Illinois – Springfield with an emphasis in social psychology and research design. His master’s paper was a review of research on religiosity. Lynn taught at the community college. He has worked as Job Training Counselor, Research Analyst, and Program Evaluator with various government programs. He’s served in the church as youth group sponsor, deacon and teacher. Lynn and his wife are members of the Episcopal church in Decatur, IL.
