Theology and philosophy have always captivated my imagination and interest. I have a liberal arts education and my philosophy courses were among my most favorite. I was raised as a Christian and I have always been interested in the Christian doctrine as well.
I have been particularly interested in apologetics, the branch of theology that deals with a defense of the Christianity. The tragic events of 911 prompted me to engage in an intense study of Islam and I was subsequently motivated to write my own book which compares Christianity to Islam. Logically, a discussion of these two great monotheistic religions would not be complete without addressing Judaism as well, so I also included a study of this great religion in my book too
The book is written in a dialogue format because some of the issues addressed in the book are based on actual, weekly discussion sessions conducted with some of my “Winter Texan” friends I met at our home on South Padre Island, Texas. The characters in the book are fictional, however, and any resemblance to any person, living or dead, is not intentional.
At the same time, I also began a book comparing Christianity to the atheistic religion of secular humanism in response to the popularity of several books written by in-your-face atheists like Dawkins and Hitchens. And, in response to my daughter’s interest in the Mormon religion, I began a third book comparing Christianity to Mormonism. As a caveat, I included an intramural discussion comparing the main denominations of Christianity to each other.
The book addressing secular humanism has now been completed and is in the process of being published by this Fall. I am in the process of putting the finishing touches on the other two books and, hopefully, they too will be available within the next six months.
I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them. If you have any questions or comments, please use this site to communicate your response.
