Turning Points: Is There Meaning to Life?

VINE VOICEon 14 January 2008
I have read several of Vaughan Roberts' books on Christianity and I have found all of them to be enjoyable and interesting. The author writes in an informal style using anecdotes to good effect and I think that his books should appeal to committed Christians and to non Christians alike. "Turning Points" is like a sort of potted history of the Bible; an examination of "God's Big Picture" starting at the Creation and ending with the New Heaven and New Earth. This book has helped me to understand better the time line of the Bible from a "macro" perspective and I would recommend it to anyone interested in Bible study.

This is easy and entertaining to read. Its real attraction however is that it so simply outlines and explains the relevance and eternal importance of the Christian faith in the context of world history and everybodys' life.

This is a good book for several reasons: it uses modern, engaging illustrations to get its points across; it uses some modern scholarship, but as part of the general, easy-to-read text; it challenges people to assess their own motives and lives- to suggest a meaning and purpose for life based on the testimony of the Bible.
Probably not as good for the person who's been investigating the Bible and Jesus' claims for a while, but an excellent introduction to what Christianity's about: it gives a clear Christian answer to the eternal problem- How to know God.

Readable and relevant, this book looks at the most significant 'turning points' in the history of the universe. Completely based on the bible it argues the relevance and importance of the Christian faith. It will question your world view asking questions that you may have been too scared to ask. If convinced by its arguments it could lead to the turning point in your life, knowing God and being known by him.

Vaughan Roberts looks at modern lifestyles, at their emptiness and lack of hope. He compares them with what the Bible has to say, and sees reason for hope, and a way out of despair and meaninglessness. His book is easy to read, with plenty of illustrations based on quotes by popular modern figures. I recommend it to anyone who has ever wondered whether there's any meaning to existence.

This book was mentioned at a sermon and sounded as if it might be of fairly general interest. In the event, the first half did hold my attention, though not very firmly, and shortly after this it seemed to ramble. In the end, I decided that my patience would not allow me to finish the book. Rather disappointing.

This book is aimed at people now who want to know more about Christianity. It is quite short, easily readable and generally very good.
