A Search for What is Real (bk)

CSV Description 1:There have been times when you've felt that if there isn't a God, there ought to be. Swept up in the mystery of the night sky, you've felt the closeness of its designer. Nature's extravagant diversity, unfolding in living color, has made you long to know the artist who dreamed it all up. Imagine what that might be like--to actually know God in a way that fills your heart and whispers tremendous value and purpose to something deep within you.
CSV Description 2:But how can you experience a being you're not even sure exists? Religious jargon and games can't satisfy such a longing. It's got to be real or nothing at all. A Search for What Is Real helps you sort through the questions, objections, and concerns that arise when you consider God not as some theological abstraction, but as someone you can actually connect with and want to connect with, perhaps more than you know.
