“Truth is the equivalence of thought to reality. In other words, when your thoughts match reality, you’ve arrived at the truth.”Brilliant! I wish I had thought of that when I was standing before my college classmates. As the title of the book states, the work delves deeper, into the realm of who God is, while providing sound arguments for defending against claims that the all-knowing, all-loving God does not exist. The book is divided into short, digestible chapters, so it is ideal for moms on the go who do not have the luxury of devoting hours to uninterrupted reading. I think this work could also be beneficial for high school and college students who are looking for a concise, easy-to-articulate way to defend their religious beliefs. And one never knows when he or she may be called upon to defend the Faith. I recall talking to a fellow journalist once who thought he could attain great celebrity if he knew the meaning of life. I regret the fact that I’ve lost touch with this reporter, because I would point him to Going Deeper. He might not gain fame by reading it, but at least he would have a handle on life’s purpose as given to us by God. Those who have any experience with preschoolers may particularly appreciate the book’s “Lollipop Theory of Free Will.” If lollipops are involved, it has to be good, right? (If you have any doubts, consult your nearest three-year-old.) A book described as “a reasoned exploration of God and Truth” can be a challenge to take on. But if you would like your head knowledge of God to equal your heart knowledge, Going Deeper may just be the book you’re looking for. What would “going deeper” to know God mean for you?
