A Glimpse Into the Inner Workings of My God by Michael L. Watson

Book Description:  Like no other book in history A Glimpse Into the Inner Workings of My God is humanity's first reality-based step in understanding the mind of God! 

On September 9, 2010, during an on air segment of Good Morning America, Nick Watts interviewed Steven Hawking. Steven Hawking unveiled his new book, co-authored by Leonard Mlodinow, called The Grand Design. In the much-taunted book, Hawking makes the bold statement, "It is not necessary to invoke God to light the blue touch paper and set the universe going" and "the laws of physics can explain the universe without the need for a creator." This departure from Steven Hawking's original open-ended query of God's existence is in parity with my introducing to the world the antithesis to his book A Glimpse Into the Inner Workings of My God.

God, Allah, Yahweh, or whatever reverent name is used to represent the Omnipotent in other cultures and other lands is the wondrous God of all that is seen and unseen in the universe. Each day's new discoveries collide with humanity's struggle to find its moral conscience. Natural disasters with tragic consequences are adding insult to injury as powerful drug resistant diseases serve as constant reminders of just how fragile creatures God intended us to be. With so much cruelty, hatefulness, insanely driven violence, and greed in the world, today's true believers in God are discovering that organized religions are ill-equipped to serve humanity's insatiable need to better understand the "whys" of God's nature. Believers and non-believers in God want to know why endless struggles create more pain and suffering than transitory joy? Did God create evolution or did evolution create God? Are there reasons other than blind faith to believe in an afterlife?

A Glimpse Into the Inner Workings of My God is guaranteed to incite your thinking, introspection, discussions, and debate. Incorporated throughout the book, I expose my human frailties, that when used with reason, intuitive knowledge, and humility, will point the way for better understanding God's purpose for you in this life. By the end of the book, your new personal relationship with God will yield the inner peace that only comes from knowing that God is truly real!

My Review: This read begins with "What organized religions don't know about your God?"  This brings an interesting and somewhat enlightening view to religion.
The author discusses creationism as the way God intended the world to be, "The big bang was created by a God who predetermined the amount of violent and explosive energy and matter required to create life forms who could perpetuate with parity the awesome, violent energy and matter required to expand the universe."  I believe in creationism.  God did speak the world into existence and He didn't need anyone's help.
The author presents his view in a way that makes the reader think about what he believes.  This is an in depth and scientific read.  
My one complaint about this read are the words the author uses.  Great words, just not words the everyday person/reader may be use to using.  I consider myself fairly educated and I needed to look up quite a few words to make sure I was getting the "gist of the whole sentence."  But don't let this keep you from reading this book.  Especially if you want answers about your beliefs in God.
I found this to be a technical read about the beliefs of God.  There are many truths in this book but sometimes I wonder why we, as people, can't just read God's Book, The Bible, and forget religion and serve a true, living and loving God.
If you have questions about religion and you want to examine your religion and what you believe then you may enjoy this book.
