Because I Think, I Believe: A Personal Christian Manifesto
This impressive piece of work not only exhibits Wilson’s passion for Christianity, but it also establishes him as an authority on the subject. In an ironic twist of the age-old battle between science and faith, the author makes use of scientific data to make a compelling argument to support the Christian faith. Though he supplies the fabric in which to swathe ourselves, Wilson may have missed the mark in enlisting the non-believers and shoring up the faithful. But he makes no apologies for his unwavering stance on acceptable Christian beliefs and behaviors. Regarding atheists, Wilson questions why a group that believes “nothing regarding God” would attack his existence “with malice and great energy.” “For them, it should be like arguing against the Easter bunny…” On attending church, he charges that this generation “gravitates towards those that extend only feel- good philosophizing…” And lastly, hell he describes as a “final separation from God…” and “populated with those who want to be there”.
While the size of the book is somewhat compact, Wilson’s personal manifesto packs a serious punch. But his message is consistent. Christianity is there for all to embrace and explore and “where man’s intellect fails, faith begins.”
