Evidence for God: Seven Reasons to Believe in the Existence of God

In many ways, science has served humanity well—answering questions and solving problems. However, in more recent years, science has been used to argue against the existence of and need for God. Andrew Christofides counters that this is an abuse of science. His brief and easy-to-read book sets out striking evidence for the existence of a Creator, deeply embedded in science, the universe, and in human nature. This book requires no previous scientific knowledge. Christofides uses plain and simple language as he seeks to lead readers to a “God Conclusion”—and introduce them to the Creator himself.

Contents:

  • Introduction
  • Creation
  • Coincidence
  • Craving
  • Conscience
  • Canon—The Bible
  • Christ
  • Christian Experience
‘The New Atheism’ is on the march today, flooding the media with its core message that God does not exist. But is this the case? As a well-qualified scientist, Dr. Andy Christofides makes it crystal clear that we are surrounded by evidence that points in exactly the opposite direction. What is more, he shows that in our own physical, mental and spiritual make-up each one of us possess equally powerful evidence for God. Here is a book to confront the atheist, challenge the skeptic, and confirm the faith of the believer as he or she faces ‘New Atheism’s energetic but empty claims.

John Blanchard, author, Does God Believe in Atheists?

Is there any evidence for the existence of God? This is the question that Andy Christofides answers with an unequivocal ‘yes!’ in seven short easy-to-understand chapters. . . . Drawing on his scientific background (he has a BSc and PhD in Chemistry), Andy shows that evidence from a variety of scientific fields force us to conclude that there is a God. Dr. Christofidees also examines other disciplines such as anthropology where he notes that humans have a universal belief in a Divine Being and a God-given conscience that actually tells us right from wrong. The Bible is shown to be a trustworthy book that points to the Lord Jesus Christ. Finally, Andy presents a clear exposition of the gospel and relates how he was converted from atheism to Christianity as a teenager. I have pleasure in commending this book as it serves a useful tool to put into the hands of those who are searching for God, as well as those who do not believe in God.

—A.J. Monty White, author, Why I Believe in Creation

This really is good. With clear thinking, concise writing and compelling arguments, Andy Christofides leads us from creation to Christ. As he does so, he gently insists we acknowledge that only God in Jesus really makes sense of the things we already know—and some things we might not have thought of! Christians should read it to get just a glimmer of how strong our case is—and then give copies away in abundance. May God really bless this little work.

—Gary Benfold, pastor, Moordown Baptist Church

Andrew Christofides was born in Burnley, Lancashire. He has a PhD in analytical chemistry, and worked in the industry for five years before entering full time Christian service as a young people’s worker. He has served as pastor of St. Mellons Baptist Church, Cardiff, since 2000.

Lifeline: How to Know God from John 3:16

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Perhaps the most famous verse in the Bible—John 3:16—has been described as the gospel in a nutshell. In this short book, Andy Christofides uses this verse as a vehicle to explain what the Christian faith is all about. He illustrates his points by drawing on his training as a scientist, his knowledge of contemporary music, and enthusiasm for Star Wars. Here is a down-to-earth book that tells the story of God’s love come down from heaven. With short, pithy chapters that can be read in less than an hour, this text is a great reminder for Christians and a resource for reaching skeptics.

Contents:

  • Setting the Scene
  • For God . . .
  • So Loved the World
  • So Loved the World
  • He Gave His One and Only Son
  • The Cross
  • So, Now What?
I am so glad that Day One has decided to republish this little gem. John 3:16 is one of the most important single verses in the whole Bible, and here Andy Christofides unfolds it for us in a most helpful way. Here is life! May the God who loves this world use this little book to bring real life, eternal life, to thousands in the days to come.
