Against All Odds

There comes a time in most people's lives when someone you know asks, "Why do you do that, or why do you believe this?" These might be questions you ask yourself, after a traumatic experience. They are good questions to ask occasionally, if for no other reasons than to change a personal practice or grow in understanding.

In Against All Odds I examine the reasons for my belief in the deity of Jesus Christ. There are those who tell me I believe a myth.  Did I come to my belief and to my view of the world without questioning the evidence I had found on which I had based my beliefs?  No, I searched, studied, considered what I had learned and reflected at length on my life's experiences to see if these vaidated what I had believed,
