A Case for the Existence of God
Some of the brightest scientific minds of our time, from Albert Einstein to Stephen Hawking, have made incredible insights into the earliest origins of the universe, but have failed to ultimately discover why there is something rather than nothing--why we exist. In A Case for the Existence of God, Dean L. Overman examines the latest theories about the origins of the universe and explains why even the most sophisticated science can only take us so far. Ultimately we must make a leap of faith to understand the world, and Overman argues that a leap into theism provides the most satisfying conclusions. Overman explores fundamental questions about why our world exists and how it functions, using principles of logic, physics, and theology. In a time when religion and science are often portrayed as diametrically opposed, A Case for the Existence of God presents a refreshing view of the interplay between science and religion and makes a compelling case for the existence of God and his role in our world.

"This book is intended for persons who have open minds concerning question god's existence." This billing only lasts through the first eight chapters, The rest of his synopsis is a proselytizing edict of why Christianity is the only possible religion that can fulfill answers for the universe and the beginning of life.
Parts of it in deed are very rational, and his thoughts on Information in chapter eight are enlightening. I was disappointed in the work as a whole, feeling it strayed from any objective proof at the end of those eight chapters.
