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.

Very honest faith journey

Very honest and critical autobiographical account of one man's walk through faith, doubt, community, etc. I found it very interesting and can see myself in his words, and imagine others there as well.

I listened on a long drive

This was a good way to pass the time... kept me interested all the way through. I'm planning to listen again when I can pay closer attention to the scientific details.

Good books always make me cry.

This book is well narrated, well written and made me cry. There are many aspects to this book that I don’t relate to, but the story of faith I connect with. I appreciate Mike for pouring out his heart and mind into words that random humans like me can appreciate and learn from.
I’m a long time listener of the band Gungor and then the liturgists and found “Science Mike” through that. I’m so very glad I did and I am glad to have finally had the time to “read” this book. I appreciate that even though I listen to Mike’s podcast and hear him on many other things that this book is still new and fresh material that I’ve not heard fully before (and interesting to hear how he has changed since writing it).

Thank you for the work you did to write this. It is still well appreciated.

Excellent!

Once a strong faithful Christian, I lost my faith defending myself against those using the Bible to persecute me. In time, I had become adept at destroying its value by attacking the contradictions therein. I became more academic throughout my life valuing science over all else. But there was always a void in me that I couldn’t fill. This book started me on my journey back. Mike did an excellent job calming my inner critic and help me hear what I needed to.

Excellent book!

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.
