She had an accident that led to End Stage Renal Disease. Her illness amplified her existing adult onset diabetes, a host of cardiac and cardiovascular issues and also she endured numerous hospitalizations after having a kidney transplant. I have spent all of this time practically living out of hospitals. Being a caregiver to your parent is no easy task. In many cases when things go wrong, and then a miracle happens to turn things around, it reinforces your faith in God many times over.
On her recent hospitalization at Mayo Clinic, She was being seen for a small infection in an ingrown toe nail on her left leg. No matter how diligent we were with care. The toe died and we were in the process of facing the amputation of a toe. Some may think it is just a toe. For those who have no idea, most hospitals when things start to happen, would rather take your entire leg below the knee to amputate instead of doing a small ray section amputation. We handpicked specialists who would be conservative with preserving life and limb. This was also her second amputation in a year period of time.
She was emotionally fearful and distraught having to go through this another time.
She was feeling sad and crying while she awaited her appointment in the nephrology department. I had momentarily left her to attend to my daughter and had returned to the waiting room to find a uniquely healthy and practically glowing couple talking to her.
Upon looking at this man and woman, they had such a spiritual presence. You could tell they walked their talk.Read more ›
The book opens with arguments in favor of Intelligent Design, the spiritual counter to various scientific theories such as Darwinism. He next turns his attention to evidence in favor of the Bible, including archeology and prophesies that have proven to be accurate. In chapter four, he describes experiences that people recall who have been resuscitated while dying. While most of us have heard of the tunnel of light and beings dressed in white that receive us in a friendly place, Mr. Cahill also shares stories of people who have experienced great heat, flames, and the smell of burning sulfur. Next, the book examines the Ten Commandments and helps readers to understand how far we all come in following those Godly rules. You'll come away with a strong sense that no matter how hard we try we cannot save ourselves from sin. From there, the book takes a brief look at comparative religions to show that only Christianity provides a way out of being judged for our sins.Read more ›
Thesis of the Book. There is a Creator, who is evidenced in Creation; who is revealed the Bible; who is made manifest in Jesus; and who destroyed "the sin barrier between man and God by the sacrifice of Himself [Jesus], and... will come again to judge everyone" (p57). "We have each broken the commands of Almighty God" (p167), will all die (and have no idea when we will die), and will be guilty on Judgment Day. Therefore, we need to turn away from our sins and receive God's forgiveness. In other words, the thesis is basically the salvation story.
Intended Audience. This book obviously is primarily intended for non-Christians. However, it would be useful for Christians who would like to be armed with information to help guide a non-Christian to understanding the Gospel and basic evangelical apologetics. Additionally, this would be a useful book for Christians to purchase in order to give to non-Christians.
Structure of the Book. As mentioned above, Cahill uses a series of questions and answers to build his argument for the need of salvation. He begins with questions such as "where does lightening come from, or a brilliant rainbow?" (p15) to then build a case for a Creator.Read more ›
