We are beginning to understand that our existential challenges are no longer just local or national, but rather are global in nature — that we are all one and must all be working on solving the problems together.
BAY PORT, Mich. (PRWEB) November 30, 2021
“I see the escalation of divisiveness in an already troubled world as a serious threat to our existence. Religious differences between individuals, groups, and nations are high on the list of ideological divides, and high on that list is the schism between theism—and in particular, Christianity—and atheism. In large part, that schism exists because of the enormous lack in understanding of each side for the other. I wanted to do my part to help heal that divide by offering to each side an opportunity to learn perhaps more about their own metaphysical views, but much more so to learn about the other’s,” David G. Mutchler states.
“Theism Vs. Atheism: Where the Twain Shall Meet” (published by Balboa Press) is about healing the theism/atheism divide while there is still time. Mutchler believes that doing so will bring renewed hope that peace on earth is still a real possibility. This book is divided into four parts. Part One is a series of introductory chapters that establish the foundation upon which the remainder of the book stands. Part Two puts Christianity under the microscope, first from the Christian’s point of view (Two A), followed by the atheists’ perspective on the Christian faith (Two B). In reverse order of Part Two, Part Three focuses on the subject of atheism, first as seen by atheists (Three A), followed by the Christians’ view of atheism (Three B). Part Four is Mutchler’s own perspective on how Christianity and atheism can come together and actually help each other resolve their differences.
“We are beginning to understand that our existential challenges are no longer just local or national, but rather are global in nature — that we are all one and must all be working on solving the problems together. Doing so requires international cooperation to alleviate tension whenever and wherever it exists. The theism/atheism divide is a mounting case of world tension, since atheism is on the rise and Christianity is in steady decline. There needs to be a clear pathway for people on both sides to join in the cause of understanding and respecting people who look and think differently than themselves,” Mutchler says.
Through the publication of this book, Mutchler wants theists/Christians to develop a clear understanding of — and respect for — what atheists believe, and why; for atheists to develop a clear understanding of —and respect for — what theists/Christian believe, and why; to gain an awareness that the two sides have something deeply in common; and that joining together to follow the path they share in common — where the twain shall meet —will be a giant step toward achieving peace and harmony in the world.

About the Author
David G. Mutchler earned degrees in education, philosophy, social work, and psychology, in addition to doing advanced studies in theology. He has taught at the secondary, university, and business levels, with honors in each. He is also the author of "Beyond the Ego: Where Love, Joy, and Peace of Mind Await You," and "Lessons for Living Beyond the Ego." As an integrative thinker, he has once again brought his various studies and life experiences together “to help people dissolve the walls that separate us from our inner selves as well as from one another.” Two of the trademarks of Mutchler’s work are his focus on disentangling and simplifying concepts that are typically thought to be both complex and esoteric, and his how-to approach to help people assimilate and apply those concepts to the betterment of themselves, others, and the world.
