John Waddell marks debut with incredible, inspiring life story

John Waddell marks his debut in the publishing scene with this book which follows “An Atheist’s Adventures with God” (published by Xlibris AU). Enthralling, eye-opening and evocative, this narrative charts the remarkable journey of how a total non-believer turned right around to become an author for God.

This story traces the life of the author as a self-confessed atheist as he passes through an eventful, often interesting, but rather troubled childhood. Concluding a printing apprenticeship, he is called into national service and is posted to Vietnam. By this time, God is definitely not in his life’s equation. Dominated by a restless spirit and a desire for adventure, Waddell eventually sets out on a season of world travels. Throughout all of this, together with the adventures, misadventures and supernatural events he has witnessed, he grows an unwavering faith and trust in God, whose love and works appear constantly in his journey as an emissary in foreign lands.

“The God of the Bible is real; so is the devil. We are living in a supernatural world after which we will enter eternity to live either in God’s heaven or the place prepared for Satan,” the debut author declares. “I was called by Almighty God to write this book. That is my strong affirmation. The tales are of a very ordinary person who found ability where there wasn’t any. This book can touch everyone’s life as they read the ups and downs, adventures and wonders found herein.”

A snippet from “An Atheist’s Adventures with God” reads:
There are multitudes who believe we are not alone in this universe. They are right. There certainly are ‘aliens’ with us constantly. An ‘alien’, by the way, is a ‘stranger’. For that matter, in the Bible, Christians are called ‘aliens’, while here on earth; the reason being, our real and ultimate home is on planet ‘heaven’. Why I can say we are not alone is that God assures us there are masses of angelic beings who were created by him. And both the good and the bad are in the heavens above and on the earth below, all the time.
