This book is a series of short essays seeking to answer life’s most enduring question: Does God exist? It is a well-researched book that is easy to read and understand. Each essay can be read in less than 10 minutes. In the end, it is important to know whether God exists or whether He does not. There is no third option. This book seeks to determine which of these beliefs is true and which one is not.
My challenge to you, the reader, is to follow the truth wherever it leads, always remembering that the truth is your friend. It enables you to believe responsibly. It leads to your ultimate well-being.
I wrote this book for skeptics, atheists, and for those who struggle with doubt, especially young people searching for answers. I also wrote this book to help people of faith, to equip them to more effectively engage with the skeptical culture in which we live.
“Richard E. Simmons doesn’t shy away from the big questions or the big issues. Just take a look at the topics of the faith-based books he’s written – wisdom, life, death, sex, truth. His latest book tackles the biggest question of all. Reflections on the Existence of God is a collection of essays about whether or not God is out there, something the 66-year-old Simmons has been exploring much of his adult life.” – Alec Harvey, Portico Magazine
“Richard Simmons’ book is the fruit of many years of thoughtful reading about the relationship of theology to the issues of modern life. He brings the biblical doctrine of God into conversation with the most basic questions about meaning and morality, science and human reason. Chapter after chapter offer helpful insights.”– Timothy Keller, pastor, author, and co-founder of Redeemer City to City
“In this accessible read, Richard Simmons offers valuable insights for those grappling with life’s biggest questions.” – Eric Metaxas, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Bonhoeffer, Martin Luther, and Miracles, and host of the nationally syndicated Eric Metaxas Radio Show
