In Search of a Lost God
Malcolm Down Publishing Ltd
John Houghton became a God-searcher at a time when churches were going under the hammer, vicars no longer believed their own faith, and God was pronounced dead. But John possessed an insatiable curiosity and wanted to find out for himself…
In spite of a relentlessly scientific and rationalistic education, something nagged inside him. Could there be more to life? Science can only observe and measure, but how could you measure the unmeasurable? The artistic, creative side of his personality demanded answers that science could never supply. So can God still have a place in a world rules by science and technology? How can there be a God of love given so much appalling suffering in this world? Hasn’t evolution disproved the existence of God, anyway?
Fresh Footprints seeks to answer these and many other questions. Using the idea of a seashore journey, the author invites readers to discover a relationship with God for themselves.
John Houghton is the author of many books, including both children and adult fantasies. They include Hagbane’s Doom and the Oswain Tales series, A Touch of Love and The Harry Potter Effect. John and his wife, Jan, live in southern England. They have three adult children and ten grandchildren.
