If God is Love, Why Must We Die? - Donald DeMarco

God is Love! This is the most glorious and welcomed notion in all of Christian theology. Man must die! This is the most vexing and most unwelcomed realization in the domain of human existence. How can a loving God allow his beloved creature, made in his own image, to die? This is the central paradox of existential theology — and a philosophical riddle well worth considering during this month of the holy souls.  Read more...

If Good and Evil Exist, God Exists - Peter Kreeft

Introduction - No One Sees God: The Dark Night of Atheists and Believers - Michael Novak

"This book is one of the most lyrical and moving reflections on God I have encountered. It is also remarkably generous, both to believers and nonbelievers.

His bracing account shows us how to address the uncertain, the disoriented, and the self-deceived among our neighbors in a way which may bring them back to moral sanity.  Read more...
