[Pascal's Wager] Kindle í Nancy N. Rue


Ou bet Reason cannot determine how you will choose nor can reason defend your position of choice Let us weigh the conseuences involved in calling heads that God exists If you win you win everything but if you lose you lose nothing Don t hesitate then but take a bet that He existsThe two main characters are a mathematician and a philosophy professor The mathematician in trying to sort out her life now that she has to deal with her mother s illness on top of her research class duties and office hours The Philosophy Prof Who philosophy prof who taken the bet that God exists would like to offer her some answers to the uestions she s asking but mostly ends up irritating herShe is easily irritated and uick to strike back This may be the first novel I ve read written in the first person in which I don t like the I at all Sarcastic cynical and cold there s not much to like Fortunately we begin to see her character develop early in the book and that makes the reader want to give her a chance otherwise I might not have read the book at allThe story contains some action A Bit Of Comedy And bit of comedy and of academia the latter always being an attraction for me The characters are reasonably believable the dialogue mostly realistic and it moves along at a good pace with the writing not getting in the way of the story Is it sad that I m using the absence of flaws as a positive point As Christian fiction it impressed me with it s unusually down to earth God talk The lack of cliches gives me enough hope for this genre that I d like to try another of the author s novels to see if it holds upI was looking for a uick and easy read so I enjoyed this I d place it somewhere in the vast chasm between literature and fluff I like literature but sometimes want escapism than it provides and I don t like fluff but read it sometimes because I can t always find something in the middle ground This one is middle ground with a decent story line and a realistic look at some of life s bigger issues I recommend it to anyone who enjoys Christian fiction Although there were no murders crimes or car chases in this book I found myself caught up in Jill s life and her struggles with the existance of the soul I felt for her as she realized that she was really unhappy deep inside and that she was passionate about her work than about other people However after so much detail about her thoughts I was other people However after so much detail about her thoughts I was that some of her deepest experiences once she began seeking faith were not shown Instead we are told that she was reading the Bible looking for a church etc but we do not see this happening Maybe the author was just trying to draw her story to a close I did find Rue s style very readable thankfully since I m often disappointed by the blandness of a lot of Christian writing. S The results not only change Jill's mind but transform her life in ways she never could have imagined An exciting faith building thriller.

Re A little romance a little mystery dealing with guilt and loss No conflict whatsoever just discussion that while incredibly thought provoking can leave some people falling asleep Not me The storyline of an Athiest Mathematician vs a Christian Philosopher was very good And I like that neither one was typical All in all a good read that i would recommend to friends I really liked several aspects of this book including how a person who is very intellectual must overcome specific roadblocks to finding God It helps you think about how to reach out to intellectual people who don t believe in GodI also really liked another theme how to think about people with severe dementia diseases that affect their ability to think and reason Are they still human How should we feel about them It makes you think a lot about people like this and how we should respond to them and be compassionateThe part of the book I didn t like is the romance It would have been an awesome book with just the two themes already mentioned how intellectuals must wrestle with things to find God and how to react to people with severe dementia I think the romance part of the book actually detracts significantly from the book It would be a stronger book without the romance What I detracts significantly from the book It would be a stronger book without the romance What I away from this had less to do with the religion aspect but with the coping with her mothers condition how it impacted her life coping with caring for her mother and the process and struggle of it all I read this while dealing with a similar struggle with my fathers journey with Alzheimer s dementia dealing with it and caring for him I found this book hit a deep person note in that regard and in a way helped me deal with my struggle and acceptance much as she had to A confirmed atheist and mathematician has her life under deal with my struggle and acceptance much as she had to A confirmed atheist and mathematician has her life under She s a graduate student writing a thesis and has a difficult time with her mother But that well ept life starts to unravel when she attends a banuet honoring her mother She comes to the realization something is wrong with her mother and also meets philosophy teacher Sam who tells her about Pascals Wager Through the following weeks dealing with her mothers dementia and stress *from school she turns and to Sam and towards God Good read and *school she turns and to Sam and towards God Good read and characters First of all I love the cover with it s metallic sheen and grunge look and the title Pascal s Wager As often happens the outside promised a little than it deliveredThe story is based on something said by seventeenth century mathematician Blaise Pascal Either God exists or He does not But which of the alternatives shall we choose Reason cannot decide anything Infinite chaos separates us At the far end of this infinite distance a coin is being spun which will come down heads or tails How will Ill seeks out philosophy professor Sam Hunt Savvy Sam challenges Jill to make Pascal's wager to bet that God exists by acting as if he doe. I so enjoyed Healing Stones by Nancy Rue that I Decided To Look Up Her Other Books This One Wasn to look up her other books This one wasn as good It was fair though It was told in the first *PERSON BY A YOUNG WOMAN WHO *by a young woman who an atheist then she met a man who told her about Pascal s wager If we bet there is a God we cannot lose But if we bet God doesn t exist we will lose in the end if we re wrong So it s a 5050 chance Therefore it s reasonable to believe Pascal s Wagerby Nancy RueI would actually give this story 35 stars if I could I would like to give it a 4 but some parts of the story just do not ring true for me Given the main character s position on God at the beginning of the story and how much she changed didn t seem like it could be real I have never gone through the pain of seeing a parent loose themselves to dementia and been completely responsible for the care of that parent That could really change a person s perspective In my family there are so many lively friendly mostly serious discussions on faith And Beliefs Ethics Etc And beliefs ethics etc and do not see anyone changing their perspective Throw teachers a philosophy professor police officer and special needs worker together over a meal and the conversation gets animated I wonder what a none believer would think of this story Really well doneJust when I think I can t love Nancy Rue s writing any I read another of her books Pascal s Wager was beautifully written I love the story the transformation the relationships and the wonderful description of one woman wrestling with and learning to love God I would highly recommend to anyone Is faith only blind belief or are there uantifiable reasons to accept it to consider the possibility that God is real Is there a spiritual element to human existence Mathematician Jill McGavock confronts these uestions when her mother intellectually gifted but emotionally estranged from Jill is diagnosed with dementia Her mother s thoughts degrade over the months while Jill ever desperately needs to Nope know if a soul exists that survives the deterioration of brain and the body As she analyzes her own beliefs she compares them to the convictions of a Christian man she is becoming and attracted to despite what she deems his irrational faith Of course it is a Christian novel so Jill s must be a conversion story but it s written in a non formulized manner The journey not the destination makes this book workAnyone already familiar with Nancy Rue s writingnows her skill with imagery characters and dialogue and this book her first adult novel is no exception These characters especially the sardonic heroine drive a uniue plot in which uiet reality becomes engaging It was an enjoyable read The ending was satisfying and I like both of the MC Honestly you just have to like this type of gen. Confirmed atheist Jill McGavock faces the mental deterioration of her brilliant mother In a uest to cope with this devastating situation Pascal's Wager
