Kurzbeschreibung

How are Christians capable of believing? Is it faith or delusion? Or is there something wrong with me? I do not believe in spirits, gods, miracles, resurrection or eternal life. But I will seek to cast off my prejudices and give God a chance. At least for a year.

Danish writer Svend Brinkmann spent a year with God, exploring faith and religion through the eyes of a sceptic. Each month, from January to December, he grappled with questions that had nagged at him since he was a child: Why does God let the innocent suffer? Does science disprove the existence of God? Does faith make you a better person? Can you doubt and still believe? It became a year of deep reflection and surprising revelations that challenged the bounds of his scientific worldview and led him to a new appreciation of faith and its place within a secular, mostly fulfilled life.

Notes
"If you don't quite believe your unbelief, if "God", despite everything, is still an intriguing word, and if you think religion might have a more humane resonance than some of its loudest adherents do, then this is an important book for you."
The Revd Dr Mark Oakley, Dean, St John's College, University of Cambridge

"With candour, openness and eloquence, Svend Brinkmann shares with us the year he spent reflecting on religion and religious experience. As an agnostic wrestling with questions of faith and doubt, he offers up a personal journey that will resonate with everyone who asks what a good and meaningful life might consist in."
Todd May, Clemson University

"For a whole year Svend Brinkmann, a secular humanist, goes in search of God. The search is serious, the questions genuine, and the openness propels us into some surprising discoveries about what it means to be religious."
Graham Ward, University of Oxford

"My Year with God is interesting, insightful, and enjoyable. In our age of tribal division, I appreciate that professor Brinkmann approaches the big questions of life with charity. Both seekers and believers will be challenged by this book."
Sean McDowell, Biola University and author or co-author of twenty books including Evidence that Demands a Verdict
