About the author:
David Shelby Kirk spent his childhood in Little Rock, Arkansas. His parents were devoted members of a Southern Baptist church, causing David to be in church twice on Sunday, every Wednesday, most Thursdays, and every evening when a revival was in session. Saturday evening was always to study the Sunday School lesson. This did not include membership in youth organizations or attendance at church summer camps or field trips. Prayer was said at breakfast, lunch, dinner and bedtime. As a teenager he frequently was called to give presentations and testimonials to church organizations. As an adult, he organized and led neighborhood Bible classes, taught Sunday School for several years, and served as a Sunday School Superintendent. He is an accomplished author, having authored eight books on computing, one on motorcycles, and this, his first religious text.
God and I
david shelby kirk
Do you sometimes wonder if God is in your life? Or whether you even need God? Were you reared in a fundamental Protestant family and wonder where it all fits, if it fits at all? Maybe God doesn't fit.
This book has no answers, but you may find the questions posed in this book touch where your heart is and may help you in your journey of finding if God has a place in your life.
This book is not one to promote any religious beliefs, nor is it a “feel good” book to reassure you that whatever you happen to believe is right. To the contrary, the book may help you discover what you do or do not believe and whether Christianity is for you or not. After reading this book you may have a new perspective.
God and I follows the letters, written in a dialog fashion, from a man to God, struggling to find his direction in life and his beliefs. Having been reared in a Christian home, he began to question the validity of those beliefs as an adult. His approach was to write letters to God, posing questions and interpretations on the Bible itself, its authors, Biblical stories, Jesus and Paul, and other topics. Along the way his views changed, as would happen on any journey of personal discovery. And yours may too, as you follow his path.
A premise of the book is that we are taught religion as children and rarely revisit the subject as an adult. By rethinking the subject, probing for the truth, and revisiting Biblical history and authorship, more information is introduced that was possibly never presented during the reader’s earlier religious orientation.
