    Book Review

Reviewed by Ray Simmons for Readers' Favorite

I can’t begin to tell you how timely and important Consequences by Robert and Miriam Fertig is. What I can tell you is that it is extremely well organized and very well written. If you are a thinker and you worry or you are curious about the headlines that emphasize the current conflict between the West and radical Islam, you should read Consequences. If you are concerned about the rhetoric and fear of some politicians who suggest this is an all-out struggle between all versions of Christianity and Islam, then again, this book is a must-read for you. But Consequences is so much more than a critique or explanation of the current political atmosphere. It covers everything concerning religion, science, philosophy, and history that is relevant to the current state of affairs between Christianity and Islam, and it does it in a style that is easy to read, easy to understand, and makes perfectly good sense.

In a way, Consequences is a condensed history of humankind told through the sometimes polarizing lenses of science, religion, and ideology. Robert and Miriam Fertig take us on a journey through issues and questions that are as old as man himself. With the works of over seventy-five authors as references, it seems as if every great thinker in human history is represented in Consequences, but again I want to stress how easy it is to read and understand. This is extremely important in the modern age and Robert and Miriam got it right. I like this book. I’m very glad that I read it. I am proud to have it in my collection and will suggest it to my friends.

Consequences: Science, Philosophy & Christian-Islam Ideology by Robert T. Fertig delves into the ultimate truth about life and gives the answers to a lot of questions concerning religion, science, and philosophy. The topics covered are thematically grouped and the book can be seen as a guide that forms a bridge between belief and skepticism. The author speaks about the compatibility of the Bible, science and philosophy, and how these three mutually support each other. He establishes a link between these topics, offering a different perspective. He also examines the conflicting practices that arise when it comes to Islam and Christianity. The book reaches out to all those people looking to deepen their understanding about truth.

The topics covered are concise and will make readers reflect on life, living, and God’s divine providence. The spiritual state of being that can be experienced by finally understanding the love of the Creator in all its glory, God’s plan for each one of us, and the depth of one’s being are topics that will take readers to another realm where their spiritual awareness can be developed to its full potential. The natural laws of nature as well as moral laws and God-given free will are topics that I found engaging and thought-provoking. The book reiterates the fact that the ultimate and universal truth is love and the final purpose of living should be to have an eternal life of joy with the Creator.
