Is there a good God? And if there is, has that God revealed anything of significance to us? Philosophers pondering these two questions have automatically assumed that the first must be answered before the second. Sandra Menssen and Thomas Sullivan examine how God's voice can be heard in the content of revelatory claims, stories, myths, poetry, exhortations, legal codes, and more. They argue that rather than taking the written word of any religion out of the philosophical proof equation, those very words should be considered as the voice of the God accused of not existing. The Agnostic Inquirer makes a clear, analytical claim that without these revelatory words, atheists and agnostics are missing a large part of the relevant database of the existence of God, while many theists are working with an impoverished database in trying to explain the foundations of their faith.

American Agnostic argues that the true worth of an American should not be based on an individual's faith or uncertainty in the reality of a biblical God. American Agnostic is an atempt by author Raymond A. Hult to bridge the unfortunate gap of mistrust and disrespect that too often currently exists in America between members of the Christian majority and the agnostic minority. Hult places the responsibility for achieving a mutually respectful understanding equally on the shoulders of both those who fervently believe in the Christian God and those who are as yet still unsure. He tries to show that moral behavior is more often than not unrelated to a person's religious persuasion. American Agnostic engages Christians and agnostics in a frank discussion of the main differences of opinion that separate both groups in regard to the authenticity of the Bible and the reality of the God as presented therein. Drawing on his transformation from a devout Christina leader to a questioning agnostic, the author recounts in detail the thought process that led to his gradual change of belief. He respectively defends this change as reasonable and deserving of serious consideration. He seeks to portray the agnostic in a more favorable light and that there is nothing inherently evil with admitting that a sure knowledge of God may not be so sure after all.

“Vital” –The New York Times Book Review “Provocative…[Hazleton] paddles the river of doubt with energy and exuberance.” –The Seattle Times A widely admired writer on religion celebrates agnosticism as the most vibrant, engaging—and ultimately the most honest—stance toward the mysteries of existence. One in four Americans reject any affiliation with organized religion, and nearly half of those under thirty describe themselves as “spiritual but not religious.” But as the airwaves resound with the haranguing of preachers and pundits, who speaks for the millions who find no joy in whittling the wonder of existence to a simple yes/no choice? Lesley Hazleton does. In this provocative, brilliant book, she gives voice to the case for agnosticism, breaks it free of its stereotypes as watered-down atheism or amorphous “seeking,” and celebrates it as a reasoned, revealing, and sustaining stance toward life. Stepping over the lines imposed by rigid conviction, she draws on philosophy, theology, psychology, science, and more to explore, with curiosity and passion, the vital role of mystery in a deceptively information-rich world; to ask what we mean by the search for meaning; to invoke the humbling yet elating perspective of infinity; to challenge received ideas about death; and to reconsider what “the soul” might be. Inspired and inspiring, Agnostic recasts the question of belief not as a problem to be solved but as an invitation to an ongoing, open-ended adventure of the mind.

Could it be true that Jesus requires his followers to admit room for doubt in him? According to this book, yes. Lawson writes in Christian Agnostic, "Greatness, in order to be great, must have a great adversary. Who would Luke Skywalker be without Darth Vadar? Who would Rocky be without Apollo Creed? Who would Winston Churchill be without Hitler? Would we ever have known who David was without Goliath? What would faith be without doubt?"Where maybe no other religious book does, the Bible understands that even though faith and doubt are great adversaries, faith loves doubt because faith loves the fight and knows that it could not be great without uncertainty. More than that, the Bible sees doubt as an ally because it knows that if doubt could be eliminated and true certainty attained, then faith, the resource that fuels the Bible's followers, could not exist for there can be no faith where there is no doubt.The majority of the church, and the world at large, views faith as a resource that erases doubt and decides truth. This misconception has caused much of the Christian world, for most of its history, to embrace a method of searching for truth that is weak and lazy. This book shows that despite the church's mistaken belief about the nature of faith, the Bible understands how to search for truth with the legitimacy that only comes from having the courage to be honest about the room for doubt present wherever faith is used to believe and then being open to challenging one's own beliefs wherever that room for doubt exists. In recent decades, millions have walked away from the church because they think the Bible lacks credibility. What they do not realize is that the Bible has credibility, but that the Christian world holds back its legitimacy, instead choosing to unintentionally make the Bible appear weak because it refuses to embrace the more honorable method of searching for truth that the book promotes. Christian Agnostic will show the world many of the Bible's strengths that the church has been unknowingly concealing.

For some, religious people who think and act irrationally can be confounding, while for others, unbelievers who don't see the reality of God are just as baffling. C. M. Blakeson, an agnostic who grew up living a fundamentalist lifestyle in Kansas, explores both perspectives in this candid memoir. From his initial journey to Jesus to his deepening belief in fundamentalist Pentecostalism, he explores how religion affected his thoughts on love and life. With God rooted as such a reality for him, he never imagined he'd one day become an agnostic--or how happy he'd be to reach such nonreligious enlightenment. Now he seeks to battle misconceptions about agnosticism. Get the true definition of agnosticism, learn how to break free from spiritual bondage, and join Blakeson as he seeks to understand various religions. If you've ever pondered what goes through the minds of fundamentalists, or if you're a religious person who wonders why your best friend left the faith, Spiritual Confessions of an Agnostic seeks to help you find answers.
