Can we still find God in a heavily secularized world?
The author's secular upbringing provided material security but little spiritual development. Leaving home at 17 he went overseas as a student then a soldier as a journalist and later as a legal investigator in war-torn Vietnam.
As the world around him grew chaotic Davidson yearned for quiet-and peace. In Southeast Asia he found both in sanctuaries as disparate as Catholic churches and Buddhist temples but his spiritual thirst persisted.
Just Think: A Personal Journey to God through Faith and Reason weaves Roman Catholic insights with some of the world's literary and theological heritage.
Told through personal stories highlighting the author's travels and spiritual illuminations Just Think invites us to consider where we are in the world why and where we're going. Not a book which preaches it merely asks us to keep an open mind while reading one man's story. Above all it asks each of us to take some time and just think.
