Finding God in the Waves
How I lost my faith and found it again through science
By Mike McHargue
What do you do when God dies? It's a question faced by millions today as science reveals a Universe that's self-creating, and scriptures reveal a God both savage and brutal by modern standards. Some people let go of God as easily as a too-small jacket. But others find their crumbling faith is a distressing affair–like watching a family member die of cancer.
Mike McHargue understands the pain of unraveling faith. In his new book, Finding God in the Waves, Mike tells the story of how his Evangelical faith dissolved into atheism as he studied the Bible, threatening his way of life, relationships, and even his marriage.
Years later, Mike had a seemingly-miraculous encounter with God while standing on the shore of the Pacific Ocean. It was a bewildering experience. This brush with God was powerful, but didn't answer any of his skeptical objections to the very idea of God. So Mike launched into a feverish season of research to find a scientifically plausible explanation for the God he experienced–ultimately finding God in the work of cosmologists and neuroscientists.
Finding God in the Waves is unique in its commitment to exploring God without twisting science. After reading it, you'll be able to feel closer to God without turning off your brain. You'll experience emotional healing. You'll be able to "fit in" with a healthy spiritual community. Finding God in the Waves is a powerful message for the spiritually homeless and frustrated: you are not alone.
