About the Book

Faith - Reason to Believe is a unique book seeking to restore faith in a power greater than ourselves, using logic and reason, rather than religious dogma. The author laments the decline in faith (especially Christian faith), where modern day acceptance of “anything goes” has been accompanied by a fall in moral standards, depression and despair; as well as threatening the survival of our western civilisation. The book explains how atheism is irrational and is just another religion. It is critical of relativism and environmentalism that have become part of the atheist dogma, in particular the current obsession with climate change. The author is also critical of religions that use fear-based tactics to maintain their followers and explains how one can determine truth from falsehood in religious teaching. The book connects the Eastern doctrine of karma with the Christian “Golden Rule” that we should treat others the way we would like to be treated and explains how all natural laws of morality can be derived from these moral anchors. The author explains how faith can give your life meaning, enable you to live a happier and more fulfilled life and may make you a better person.
