Author Joel Lantz — Christ-follower, one-time skeptic, and retired scientist (physical chemistry PhD) — sensed a call to publish clear evidence of God at work to 1) encourage honest skeptics* toward Christ-centered belief and 2) strengthen existing Christ-followers in belief. The brief first edition of his free God sightings? e-book (the “?” in the title to encourage open consideration) contained thirteen accounts, including examples of dramatically changed lives. The present (as of mid-June, 2016) third edition of the book is now renamed Bridges for honest skeptics: Rational bases for belief for truth-seekers struggling with God’s existence, involvement, and relevance and contains forty accounts in the first major part (EVIDENCE). Additional THINKING FURTHER and CONCERNING US parts of the book, plus four appendices, add extensive, mutually supportive rational discussions and further in-context evidence to help readers who doubt the supernatural and/or are misinformed by culture. Much of this added material is scientifically oriented. You can download the e-book for free at:
The “Once I was blind, but now I can see” download that accompanies this author introduction is part of Bridges for honest skeptics. Joel has gone to great pains when researching this account to solidly confirm the veracity of the Greg Spencer miracle reported in the Jesus of Testimony. Therefore, the account hopefully will strengthen and encourage your confidence in a God who is active in human affairs, popular attempts to discredit him and discouraging reports in the daily news notwithstanding.
* He defines “honest skeptics” as sincere doubters who believe in truth, seek truth, and are willing (or at least willing to be willing) to accept truth when they find it — vs. seek to avoid truth they dislike.
