About the Author:

Dr. John Oakes is a Professor of Chemistry and Physics at Marian College in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. He received his PhD in chemical physics from the University of Colorado in Boulder in 1984. Since that time he has worked as a Professor of Chemistry at Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington, and as a minister for a church in San Diego. He has spoken at a number of colleges on various topics related to science and religion. Dr. Oakes' background as a minister and as a Professor of Chemistry and Physics give him an unusually broad background of experience to handle questions of science and religion.

Review:

The need for biblical evidences is greater in our generation than ever before. Secularism and humanism are rampant, the media and the educational system bombard us with half-truths and untruths about the meaning of life, and multitudes are confused about the fundamentals of human existence. So profound is the confusion today that many ask not, "What are the answers?", but rather "What are the questions?" We in western society are in a bad way indeed! The need for fresh books-well thought out, well written, and well adapted to our generation-is phenomenal. I believe that, with this volume, you have acquired such a book.

For me it was fascinating to watch Is There a God? take shape, realizing what invaluable evidence John Oakes had brought to light. Christians the world over will appreciate its careful blend of science and Bible. My heart thrills at every piece of information, every perspective or new angle of entry to apologetic questions. During high school and university years my faith was strengthened enormously through reading apologetic works, and it was through our mutual interest in apologetics that John and I first came into contact. Over the years I have built up a small library around the subject of evidences. I personally am proud to add this latest work, Is There a God: Questions about Science and the Bible, to my collection.

Surely every disciple will want to follow the flow of John Oakes' reasoning and master the arguments, in order better to be equipped to convince others about God's reality and the truth of his Word.

It is rare to find a man of high caliber and academic integrity serving the Lord both as university professor and disciple of Christ. Thanks to that precious combination a superb new book has been authored, and to you I gladly commend both it and its author. For I have every confidence that in this book you will find something to strengthen your faith in God's existence, wisdom, and power. -- Dr. Douglas Jacoby
