9781403354532: A God for Lions: World Religions Simplified

This is a book for old and young alike who are not certain of their immortality. It is for those who have doubt, either great or small, that the rose can, indeed, grow on the other side of the wall. This is not a book of theory. Rather it is a book of reality, one of fact. A chance for you to remove the question mark from the end of your life. A collection of three dozen or so fun and heartwarming short stories that progress into a series of conversations with a young boy that tell of his struggle to define his faith. Included in Johnny's dialogue is an in-depth discussion of the world's major religions including Christianity, Judaism, Islamism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism and some others. Each story is structured upon actual quotations from the particular scriptures including the Bible, the Torah, the Koran, the Vedas, the Tripitaka and the teachings of Tao. In an entertaining way they tell what each religion is all about. Similarities and differences concerning the concept of creation, the way one is to live ones life, the intended structure of society, sexual practices permitted and forbidden, and the possibility of an afterlife. And, perhaps, most important of all, an explicit description of what the afterlife will be like in each case. The investigation ends in the Sure Bet, that one need no longer be dependent solely on belief for ones salvation, that there exists scientific proof of a hereafter.

About the Author:

A few years ago, the author had a near death experience, and lying in a hospital bed, he was told that he might not make it through the night. A priest was sent for, and he was given the last rites. He had been a good Catholic all his life, and as he lay there, he felt that there was a fifty-fifty chance that he was going somewhere, and that meant to him that there was also a fifty-fifty chance that this was it. That this was curtains - that he had had it. Having had a second chance, he decided to take that chance, to increase his chances above a flip of a coin. To remove the question mark (?) from the end of his life.
