Item Description...
Overview
Sam didn't think much of religion. What with science being able to explain almost everything about us and about the world we live in, there didn't seem much point to believing in God any more. And, besides, if there was a God who cared about us and was all-powerful, there wouldn't be suffering and poverty and war, would there? But then came the day Sam was exploring the Internet, and stumbled across God's website! At least, that was what it claimed to be. But who knows? It could have been some sort of joke-the work of a hacker. Sam decides to investigate, and becomes engrossed in conversations with the mysterious person on the other end. Together they explore the great questions arising out of evolution, astronomy, cosmology, the laws of nature, and the possibility of miracles. Not that Sam knew much science. Fortunately the stranger was able to explain the science from scratch in a way that Sam could understand. They also tackled the problems of evil, suffering, and death; that really set Sam thinking. So, was the intruder really God-God on the Internet-or a hacker? Readers will have to make up their own mind. They will also be challenged to form their own personal responses to the issues raised based on a listing of forty questions at the back of the book. Sample questions include: What do you hope to achieve in your lifetime? Does belief in God play a part in that? Do you believe in evolution-that you came from animals? Do you think there is life on other planets? If so, does that make human beings less important? Do the world religions contradict each other, or are they simply talking about the same God in somewhat different ways? How should belief in an afterlife affect the way you live this life?

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Reflects on the phenomena of faith in the new cyber age  May 17, 2002
www.Here-I-Am by Russell Stannard is an engaging novel for young adult readers which reflects on the phenomena of faith in the new cyber age. A young boy who has doubts about God in the face of the tragedy and crimes reported every day in the newspaper, yet suddenly he discovers what claims to be God's website. Talking to the person on the other end of the computer, he gains a new insight into the world and into the problems of evil and suffering that bedevil it. Whether the voice at the other end of the computer really is God is left for the reader to decide in this fascinating and insightful read. A welcome addition to any personal reading list, as well as school and community library YA fiction collections, www.Here-I-Am is enthusiastically recommended and highly entertaining reading.
 
a great resource for youth groups  May 14, 2002
I run a youth group in our community center and used WWW.Here-I-AM in a recent series on religion. The book was well-received by the kids (ages 11 through 12) allowing them to really think and begin to form their own opinions about religion and God. It's great for starting discussions and helping the kids learn that they can form their own educated opinions about the world around them. Give it a try! I plan to use it next year as well.
