A few weeks ago, I sent an email out to our team members, asking them what changes they thought we could make to the blog to create a more useful resource.
One of our team members, Chad V., suggested that we include personal stories of those in the faith. He reminded me of how powerful a good story can be. After all, Jesus Himself spoke in parables or stories.
Although some of you may have heard already, A.N. Wilson, novelist and biographer, has renounced his atheism of twenty years and returned to belief in God.
In this article, Wilson writes of his interactions with fellow atheists such as Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens, as well as explains why he believes atheism and/or materialism to be incapable of explaining our "mysterious human existence."
"Watching a whole cluster of friends, and my own mother, die over quite a short space of time convinced me that purely materialist “explanations” for our mysterious human existence simply won’t do – on an intellectual level. The phenomenon of language alone should give us pause. A materialist Darwinian was having dinner with me a few years ago and we laughingly alluded to how, as years go by, one forgets names. Eager, as committed Darwinians often are, to testify on any occasion, my friend asserted: “It is because when we were simply anthropoid apes, there was no need to distinguish between one another by giving names.”
This credal confession struck me as just as superstitious as believing in the historicity of Noah’s Ark. More so, really." 
Courage and Godspeed,
Chad A. Gross
