Proof of Divine presents the journey of author Andrew Murtagh as he straddles the fence between faith and cynicism in an all-or-none look at the greatest story ever told. Blending his family's incredible stories of survival, faith, hope, and love, matched with his own walk from hockey player to coach to husband, father, and career man, he embarks on a five-year expedition towards the intersection of faith and reason. Is there a God? Are science and faith mutually exclusive? What is truth and what of logic, morality, and meaning? Who is the historical Jesus, and why Christianity? The faith of scientists, the science of skeptics, the questions of time, life, and purpose, Murtagh looks back at his own life and the inspiring lives of his forefathers to decide if he is an accident or an intention. The graze of a bullet, a soldier surrounded, an armed robbery, and a fateful desert drive-Murtagh puts the faith of his youth to the ultimate test: the Proof of Divine. "Told in a warm, personal way, Murtagh's pilgrimage is laced with evidence, argumentation, and fair assessment of the evidence for and against belief-Proof of Divine will engage the reader, challenge unbelievers and strengthen believers. I highly recommend it" -J.P. Moreland, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Biola University "This wonderfully-written account is that of a man pursuing the journey of life, in a quest to find ultimate meaning in the universe. It was exceptionally difficult to put down-Murtagh knows how to punch the right buttons There is something here for everyone and I recommend it highly" -Gary R. Habermas, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy and Theology, Liberty University "I love this book and the intellectual honesty and humility of the author The caution and finesse with which the author stayed within the limits of science and logic was impressive-Andrew is a story teller par excellence-A must read" -Steve A Johnson, Professor of
