A different Christian book that doesn't just ask you for
blind faith, but dares to present the author's proof
Read what readers had to say
All humans wonder about the existence of God because we tend to be
skeptical of what we cannot see or feel for ourselves. Yet, we accept
many things as fact that we cannot see, starting with what powers the
device you are viewing this message on. We know the results but we
cannot see what is making it work.
In the first chapter, Proving the Existence of God, the author
presents proof that God does indeed exist and shows you how you can
prove it to yourself.
The author’s style of writing, is direct and to the point.
While aimed at all Christians, it will certainly appeal to those who
are not sure what to believe.

This book is unique and thought-provoking because it emphasizes the
importance of looking beyond the literal interpretation of scripture
through a historical look at the bible. It also discusses the Christian
life that will make you feel better about yourself.
From the publisher:
I love the idea of merging religion with Science.
You should never stop asking questions. I was fascinated by people
like Darwin, a theology major, that could merge the two so
comfortably. When I saw this book, especially the fist chapter, I said
this is something people want to know. Is there a scientific way to
prove that God exists? The first chapters prove it and the
rest tries to show you what you can do. He doesn't push church
attendance, giving or anything else. This is up to you, but he shows you
the benefits to you of what Christianity is all about... not just blind
faith but a way to conduct your life for your own happiness, actually.
Isn't that what most therapists are trying to accomplish? The
lessons in the Bible are for everyone, atheist, agnostic or Christian.
It doesn't matter because these are stories that affect all humans.
For the modern would be Christian or even the
Atheist or Agnostic, this is a good book to start your quest for
answers. It shows you that just because someone is religious, it doesn't
mean blind faith.
There are books attempting to argue that God does
not exist. However, mathematically it has been accepted that proving the
absence of anything is impossible. This author will show you the
overwhelming evidence to the contrary that should get you interested in
further study of our world and amaze you as you make discoveries every
day of this evidence. It will open your eyes.
1. Calling people back to what is important
First of all, I want to thank you for allowing me to be one of the
first to preview your book. Second, I want to apologize for the delay in my
response. No excuses...just got sidetracked and I'm so sorry.
I found your book to be very helpful and feel that it has some
wonderful explanations and arguments that could be well usedwhen religion
is the topic. It seems to me that today's society struggles with God's
existence and the references you quote in your book are perfect support.
My favorite section is on page 71, where you state
not a religion at all. It is about a relationship with the one true God
through his son, Jesus Christ." As Christians, I feel that we need to be
open to all who believe - regardless of their religious affiliations. We
also need to be respectful of their religious laws and their interpretations
of God's laws. Since our world has strayed so far from God, it is far more
important to evangelize for Christianity than for a particular religion -
in my opinion. Hopefully the questions you have addressed in your book will
reach far and wide, calling people back to what is important.
I wish you great success as you continue your
journey. Thank you again.
2. This book will spark discussion
This is not a book that merely offers traditional arguments or
"proofs" for God's existence though some of those topics are addressed.
Rather Apperson seeks out readers who are believers, but not necessarily
church goers, who need some encouragement and friendly persuasion. He also
offers something for seekers who have wondered if the Christian faith is
personally satisfying. Apperson does find the Christian faith satisfying
and stimulating. Clearly his own journey and its detours are in the
background as he honestly shares his insights and offers a practical and
practice-able approach to growing in faith.
That the author and publisher wish this volume to be accessible and
useful to the reader is obvious in its larger print, workbook style format
(hardcopy edition). This book will spark discussion and could be used in a
small group or a Sunday School class. I would like to see some discussion
prompting questions at the end of each chapter in a future edition.

3. Memorable and Powerful
the Existence of God", I believe Dan rose to the challenge with his
writing skill in this accomplished and thoughtful book. The book is
effective with great subject matter. "Proving the Existence of God" is
also memorable and powerful. I am certain the book will become a
success. In addition, the cover, with its bright colors and larger
print, actually draws you to the book.
4. Create your own relationship with God
With it's stand-out cover, size, pictures, and spacing, this book
invites a reader to take a closer look.The author's writing style is personal and very similar to having a
conversation with him. It is actually better than a conversation because
you can highlight the passages that speak to you and review them again at a
later time.Even if you already believe in the existence of God, it is interesting
reading Mr. Apperson's argument for, and evidence of, God's existence. For
this reader, the good stuff began in Chapter 3. Many answers and insights
are found here and continuing to the book's end. Written especially for the
struggling Christian,"Proving the Existence of God" encourages the reader
to create their own personal relationship with God.
5. A Page Turner
This book spoke both to my soul and spirit. It definitely is a page
turner. It was very insightful and very scriptural in an easily understood
way. At the same time it brought comfort and inspiration to me in an
insightful way when my emotions were at a low ebb during tough times. I
highly recommend it. Great job Dan!
6. A Good Beginning
I enjoyed reading "Proving the Existence of God" by Daniel Apperson.
The book is a good beginning for a believer in Jesus Christ. It would
make a good outline for a Bible study group.
Some ideas are thought provoking. The author keeps subjects simple and
easy to understand regardless of what religion or denomination.
If you desire a personal relationship with God, this book would help you
get started, or even help strengthen the one you have already.
7. Very Compelling
"Proving the Existence of God" is a compelling book that leads a person
to search out the reasons that there is a God. From his own experiences,
given with many personal details and examples, Mr. Apperson gives reasons
for why even a doubter can positively identify that there is a God. I saw
instances in his book where the commonalities of everyday life and the paths
that we all must travel can point us to an existence of a loving shepherd,
who was God incarnate and died for each of us over 2,000 years ago. Mr.
Apperson clearly points out the differences of what modern day "religion" is
all about as opposed to what a personal relationship with God is. The
Apostle Paul states in Romans 1:18-20 that, "men who suppress the truth" by
their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to the. For
since the creation of the world God's power and divine nature have been
clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are
without excuse."Daniel also provides reasons beyond that for why we should
be aware that God is real.

8. Well Written
Proving The Existence of God is a book that anyone could take away
something beneficial to their own lives. It is very well written from a non
denomination point of view and addresses many issues that hit home with me
personally. I feel in these times that religion and spirituality are very
important to battle the negative that is present everyday. Mr. Apperson's
writing style allows for the majority to come away from reading this book
with viable information on how to include religion and God in our daily
lives.Very well written and inspirational!

9. Thought Provoking Book
So, my constructive criticism... this book is deep right from the get-go.
I did think it was really neat how the book tried to "prove" there is a God.
I had never heard the theory that was put forth and though I did enjoy
thinking about it, after working a full day in a technically challenging
environment, it was tough for me to come home and think that deeply. So, the
first couple of chapters were tough for me to get through. Now what I do
appreciate is a way to discuss the "how do you know" topic with other
non-believers. For me, I have never required that proof. I grew up in faith
and have grown deeper into faith as I have grown older.
So.. the things I really enjoyed. Religion vs. Relationship. I really
enjoyed reading about your perspective on this. What I can relate some of
this to is dealing with a variety of cultures around the world as I traveled
for my job. I have been able to go to S. America, Europe and Asia. Though
the food is different, customs are different, traditions are different,
looks are different - in the end - people really aren't that different when
you look deep enough. People just want to be loved and want to be happy. How
you obtain happiness and love might vary but in the end, that is one thing
that seems to unite us (or at least me with my fellow coworkers).
I liked how the book tackled subjects that some folks may not talk a lot
about such as mega churches, money, etc. I thought the book gave rather fair
and balanced commentary. I like how you state what your personal choices
have been without stating that it is your way or the highway.
Overall, I thought it was a great read that stimulated my mind and
allowed me an opportunity to further explore my faith.

10. Thinker's Delight
I like the critical approach taken by the author of this book.
Sometimes we need to sit back and take a good look at ourselves and examine
not only our relationship with God, but how we think about understanding Him
as well. Why do we believe what we do? What is our attitude about salvation?
Was it shaped by mankind influences or by God's Word? Why do we believe so
strongly in the things that we do?
Daniel really takes the time to ask a lot of these probing questions
and that's what makes this book so good. Do I agree with all of Daniel's
viewpoint's? Not necessarily, but I do enjoy that the book made me think and
question why I do believe like I do. Not many books out there stir the pot
like this and that's what I think is the best part about this.
This is a book to be read in your quiet time where you can spend time
in prayer and really study things out.

11. A Must Read
Very thoroughly and interestingly written. It was very hard to put
down once I began reading it. It presents Christ and Christianity in a
straight forward yet non judgmental way. I highly recommend it!

12. Easy Read
I found Proving the Existence of God, easy to read and understand. I
felt it was written openly and not opinionated with the author's thoughts as
a lot of books are.
13. One of a Kind
A unique and intriguing, one of a kind approach to understanding the
many questions we wrestle with about God, the church, religion, and more.
Has anyone ever proved the existence of God using the Law of Cause &
Effect? “Proving the Existence of God"does along with other great
eye-opening insights. The author’s perspectives are clearly stated and easy

14. Your new book is both informative and easy to read.
I think it is a good reference for Christians to help explain why they
believe and for curious non-believers, as well to help with decision making
Thank you, I enjoyed your
15. Down to Earth
Any Church would do well to listen to the few like Daniel Apperson who
chose to remain involved in its teachings. I found his Proving God to be
well thought out and very much down to earth. As the earth moves ever
forward we all seem to continue to need more, or at the very least, that's
what we tell ourselves. We all have become our own doubting Thomas. We all
carry our own reward for forgetting who we really are and instead have
replaced God with our belief that we must have all the good things in life.
Forgotten is God's teachings that all earthly things measure only our
weakness. "Why is it we can no more just believe?" As our Churches continue
to empty one is drawn to the fact that you see very few children in Church
which causes me to wonder has God begun to turn away, has we begun to
question our faith in him ? I pray for the Daniel Appersons, because I
truly believe that if they are ever silenced I wonder if all of Christianity
soon with began to tremble and then fall?
Well done Daniel, well done.
