If there really is something spiritual out there, wouldn't there be some pretty clear signposts to it? Surely God wouldn't leave people with nothing but a bewildering variety of religious voices?

If God exists - wouldn't he have made himself clearer? In the second If I Were God book, John Dickson considers the vast array of spiritual claims made by different religions and individuals and asks whether any clarity about God can be found.

Written from a Christian perspective, this book struggles honestly with a dilemma facing 'believers' and 'unbelievers' alike: With so many religions on offer, can one of them be considered true? Or are they different paths up the same spiritual mountain? And how can any one person sort out their way through the maze of claims?

This could be for a couple of reasons. Firstly, so much blood has been spilled through religious conflict, that there seems nothing to be gained by highlighting differences that could cause more conflict.... continue reading

Customer reviews

“Excellent - short and very readable for the non-christian”

Highly recommended - carry a few around in your handbag. Not too daunting to give to a non-christian friend as it's short but has excellent references at the back for follow up reading.
Challenging comparisons with: 1)atheists, who are like people kept in a locked room and hypnotised into believing there is nothing beyond what they can see in the room and 2) most other religions which are built on some man's theories rather than Christianity which is founded on the evidence of the empty tomb and Christ' life.
Title refers to the argument that God has, in fact, made himself very clear through his revelation in the person of Jesus.
