It is provocative and intended to provoke thinking more honestly and deeply about truly important issues. It is not about blind faith, but, rather faith with eyes wide open and the mind engaged and alert. It discusses why it is impossible to prove Gods existence or non-existence- whether we are physical beings with spiritual experiences or spiritual beings temporarily in a physical world- whether God intervenes in our lives, how God intervenes, and how to better recognize when he has. We often speak of rights, but it addresses the obligations that we owe to ourselves, our families, and others. Obligations that we owe in our business dealings and obligations we owe to our communities. It suggests things we should think about and how doing them will change behavior.Thirteen Truths exposes the fallacy that occurs when faiths, by certain doctrines and actions, wrongly try to limit God and how faiths act contrary to God when they impose punishments on those they would label heretics and infidels. It discusses why many persons concept of hell as a place of eternal torment cannot exist alongside the concept of a loving and just God. It discusses the fallacy of faiths and persons of faith condemning the atheist.It addresses how we should understand tragedies if God is a loving and just God, and how we should respond when tragedies occur. It explores the difference between acts of God and acts of man in understanding responses to tragedies. It discusses, if God is loving, then why do we have death and suffering and how we should think about them and respond.It explores how we should understand God and justice and our obligations to justice and that we should be just not only in the ends we seek, but in our means employed to attain our ends. It explores societal and individual justice - the obligations that civil societies and civilized persons owe to one another.Lastly, Thirteen Truths looks at what is truly important for us and how this can help us lead fulfilling lives. It suggests the most valuable thing we can leave behind and the most valuable thing we can take with us after our deaths.“This book simply discusses truths that I have learned about God and life.” —Alan S.
