Description

What do you do when God dies? It's a question facing millions today, as science reveals a universe that's self-creating, American culture departs from Christian social norms, and the idea of God begins to seem implausible at best and destructive at worst.

Mike McHargue understands the pain of unraveling belief. In Finding God in the Waves, Mike tells the story of how his Evangelical faith dissolved into atheism as he studied the Bible, a crisis that threatened his identity, his friendships, and even his marriage. Years later, Mike was standing on the shores of the Pacific Ocean when a bewildering, seemingly mystical moment motivated him to take another look. But this time, it wasn't theology or scripture that led him back to God - it was science.

In Finding God in the Waves, "Science Mike" draws on his personal experience to tell the unlikely story of how science led him back to faith. Among other revelations, we learn what brain scans reveal about what happens when we pray; how fundamentalism affects the psyche; and how God is revealed not only in scripture but in the night sky, in subatomic particles, and in us.

One of my favourite books.

Mike’s story gave me life. His journey through faith and doubt gave words to questions I didn’t know how to ask. This book will forever be one of my favourites based on how much it impacted my heart. Loved listening to Mike read it.

Challenging and Well Reasoned

This book challenged me to think outside the "God" paradigms that I've known my whole life. I liked the personality in the book, it wasn't just the author telling me a bunch of things, everything was woven into his journey. An excellent read (or listen). #Audible1

For those wrestling with the Christian faith

I'm a big fan of Science Mike's and have listened to his podcasts from the beginning. Most of what's in the book isn't new, it's all in his podcasts and interviews. But the book takes all of the little nuggets that I've heard over the course of countless hours and compiles it into one place and expands on all of it.

I love Mike's humble tone and genuine search for truth and beauty. I relate to so much of his story and I appreciate that he is willing to share his story with such honesty and transparency.

Finding God In The Waves is encouraging and challenging and I recommend it to anyone wrestling with faith and doubt. Another similar book that fans of this one might enjoy is Searching For Sunday by Rachel Held Evans.

Clear rationale discussion

Difficult subject matter dealt with openly and honestly without preachiness. Very well written and more powerful being read by author!

A beautiful affirmation

I love Mike, and his heart for people. As a long time follower of his work, I wondered if I would find anything new in this book. I was pleased to hear more details of the story I already knew, and excited to hear brand new insights and information. Love him, love the book. Can't say how much this helps me feel more normal.

new old faith, new life

I laughed, I cried, you know how that goes. I'm a former leader deconstructing, trying to find what I'm looking for, as U2 sang. Mike's search and journey offers hope that a personal balance with science and Jesus, while loving those I formerly served, is attainable. I'm thankful for all the work you've done, Mike.

It's me...in a book!

Unlike Science Mike, I was not raised in Christianity. I have, however, always been drawn to it. I just couldn't get past the Bible or, truth be told, the people. This book speaks to everything I ever thought faith in God should be. Thank you!

Required reading for skeptics and church attendees

There isn't a better or more beautiful reconciliation of the tension of faith and skepticism. You need to read this if you partake of a faith tradition, used to, or have heard of one.

Satiating with explanations and insight

This book was raw honesty. Mike addresses nearly even question or doubt that crosses a believers’ mind in the journey of faith and gives critical thought and insight into how or why that doubt came to be, can be reconciled, or explains how it can’t be explained. There are parallels in the story to every stage in a personal faith journey.
Thank you for putting your story out for all to embrace, Mike. Out family misses Good Samaritan dearly- truly a loving church family.

Excellent read for anyone deconstructing

This book was so helpful as I’ve been deconstructing my faith for about a year now. It helped me give permission to myself to possibly salvage a faith I just wanted to throw out the window.
