Paul Ernst earned his BS in chemistry and worked as an analytical chemist before moving into the financial services industry. After decades of disbelief, he found faith through a painful late-life investigation into questions of eternity. For the past 12 years, he has immersed himself in the rich world of Christian scholarship, first as a reader and then as a student. You Bet Your Life is his first book, a culmination of his experience and the arguments that convinced him. He and his wife Mary live in Boulder, CO.
Nirvana or Heaven? Paradise or nothingness? In a post-everything culture, the afterlife can be a confusing subject. Yet, as former atheist Paul Ernst came to realize, that doesn’t make it any less important. You Bet Your Life addresses three concerns about Christianity: Is it true? Is it good? and, “Do I like it?” Ernst makes a compelling case for the first two. The third is up to you.
