Searching for a meaning to life seems to be programmed into us as human beings. We may sometimes try to brush the subject aside, but time and again we still wonder whether there is any point in all our activities, experiences and emotions. Why are we here? What is life all about? Are we part of a bigger picture, or just specks of dust swirling around in a mindless universe? Where can we find a basis for morality or responsible behaviour of any kind? On what basis can we differentiate between good and bad, right or wrong, fair or unfair? Can we sail through life without moral responsibility of any kind? If we are nothing more than biological accidents, cobbled together from bits of our ancestors, what is the point in speaking about human values or the quality of life? These are big questions, and it makes no sense to ignore them.In this short and very readable book, John Blanchard faces these questions and shows how the answers are more accessible than many think. He exposes the `double-think' in many modern attitudes and deals with the ultimate reality - a reality that is quite literally life changing.
Dr. Blanchard is an internationally known Christian author, he formed Popular Christian Apologetics, a project that involves writing, speaking, radio and television broadcasting and the production of a series of videotapes and audio-cassettes providing a rational defence of the Christian faith. The PCA project now takes up virtually all of his time, but he also preaches and teaches in other evangelistic and Bible teaching situations.His 24 books include two of the UK's most widely used evangelistic publications, Right with God and Ultimate Questions. Published in 2000, his 655-page volume Does God believe in Atheists? was voted 'Best Christian Book ' in the inaugural UK Christian Book Awards held in 2001.Dr. Blanchard is on the Board of Governors of Highland Theological College; is a Trustee and Life Vice-President of the Young Life; Patron of Liverpool City Mission; on the Council of Reference of the Brighton and Hove City Mission; and on the Board of Reference of Orphaids, and of Longhorsely Convention Christian.
