Robert A. Laidlaw was born in Dalry, Scotland in 1885 and moved with his family to New Zealand the following year. There, he became one of that country's most successful and respected businessmen. His fatherly concern for his staff led him to write The Reason Why which, since its publication in 1913, has sold tens of millions of copies and has been translated into over thirty languages.Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission.

Nearly ten years ago I spent a snowy afternoon reading The Reason Why while Ken and friends were skiing. Perhaps like you, I had both noticed and envied the deep joy I saw in people (like my husband) who had taken the promise of forgiveness of sins and eternal salvation into their hearts by accepting Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. It was a mystery to me. How did a person like me come to this decision and take what sounded like a simple but huge step?
The Reason Why is 37 pages long. It very patiently goes through the intellectual questions you and I have about the existence of God, the Bible and the Word of God and, ultimately, God's offer and plan for our salvation and eternal life with Him.
My beliefs, my faith, and my ego were all challenged by this little book as the case for God's wondrous and loving offer was built and rebuilt. At the end I was asked to leave my doubts behind, to rejoice in the invitation by God to take Jesus Christ into my heart as my personal savior, and to accept that offer period.
As I signed and dated this little book, I realized that faith is simply a choice—yes or no. Yes for me has made all the difference.
