I recommend this book to you. Speight is forthright in giving credit to Muslims contributions in the advancement of modern science, mathematics, medicine, philosophy, culture and civilization, etc. And he wants more manned space exploration.
What Greear is attempting to communicate in this book is that God is bigger than our words can say. His book is one-hundred, seventeen pages; I read that many pages before breakfast.
The problem is, there is as much bad teaching as good. He has a longtime girlfriend -- but he also has homosexual feelings, feelings he tries hard to change.
