About this title

Synopsis:

THE GROUP By Dr. James Lowther Danny Carter has won a scholarship to attend Enlightenment University in New England. Since Danny wants to be a Christian philosopher, he accepts the challenge of going to a completely and unabashedly humanistic university in order to learn philosophy. Shortly after matriculating to the school he is annoyed by a classmate's ridiculing of his faith, so Danny challenges this student, Peter Grayson, just to listen to a complete Christian apologetic without ridicule or interruption before he makes such scathing judgments. Peter takes him up on his challenge and invites Danny to a philosophy club meeting to present his case and undergo due scrutiny. Danny accepts and six sessions are set up to discuss the Bible, origins, morality, and evidences of faith. The book is honest about criticisms of the Bible and faith and answers to them. In the meantime Danny tries to find a good church home near campus that is somewhat akin to his home church in northeast Georgia, runs into the pastor's daughter of a local church who is working at a local coffee shop. He discovers the church through a flyer on the counter of the shop that is advertising the church's fall festival. He walks the five miles to the church in a driving rain storm and for his troubles begins a romantic relationship with the pastor's daughter, finds a loving supporting church that spiritually and tangibly backs his efforts to be a missionary on the secular campus of EU, and finds some trouble when the leading church member's daughter is attracted to Danny. The stream of tension runs furious in three tributaries of Danny's life. First, the attacks on his Christian beliefs and value system are relentless. Second, Danny's hedonistic roommate, an art major, mocks his moral values, but then ends up being hit by a truck after a drinking binge. Third, Danny's romantic interest in the pastor's daughter of the church he started attending is complicated by the blonde daughter of the lead deacon in the church, a rich lawyer, aggressively pursuing Danny. Though the book has its light moments it is a serious work to arm Christian students to defend their faith in school and guard them against attacks on that faith. The book does not soft peddle the criticisms against the Bible, but instead tries to answer those criticisms forthrightly. It is the author's long held believe that that Bible and the Christian faith will stand firm against the strongest arguments thrown at them. It is with this aim that the book is written.
