Life is full of mystery. Is it possible that there is order in the midst of chaos?Are there solutions to everyday problems? Can there be meaning or purpose in life? Is it possible to know why we are here and where we are going? Why is there so much suffering and death? Is there life after death? Can we be enlightened here and now? Am I destined to lose all identity—to become part of a great nothingness? Is it true that there are no answers?
There is an ancient book that discusses the many questions in life. It is called the Holy Bible. But are the answers found within its pages trustworthy? To decide for yourself, you need to know what it really says. By This Name peels the religion off this sacred book and lets the ancient story speak for itself. In the process, a message of hope snaps into focus.
Audience: Engages those who adopt their own spirituality, making God out to be whatever they want. Also for those who think of God as an impersonal force or for those with post-modern, post-Christian and secular mindsets. Addresses questions arising from polytheism, pantheism, animism, agnosticism and atheism.
