SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 28, 2017 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Every human being at some point in their lives has wondered about the purpose in life. It's a common question, whether someone is religious or not. Leo Severino's new book, GOING DEEPER, tackles this very question, which tugs at the very heart of humanity.
With a background in film and philosophy — he previously worked at 20th Century Fox before co-founding Metanoia Films, and has written and produced several movies, including "Bella" and "Little Boy" -- Severino has all the tools necessary to capture the attention of the reader right from the start, using imagery to demonstrate his philosophical points and challenging the reader to continually go deeper into serious questions that he answers with simple, yet profound, explanations.
The first half of GOING DEEPER is focused solely on using logic to prove the existence of the First Cause, demonstrating its attributes and concluding that God indeed does exist. But the second half is equally heavy on logic, using the discoveries of the first half of the book to extrapolate the meaning of human existence, why there is suffering in this world, the role of free will and the search for truth.
In GOING DEEPER, Severino writes in a conversational tone that is easy-to-follow and understandable, even for someone who totally lacks any kind of philosophy or theology background.
However, those who do have a background in philosophy will not be disappointed, as they will no doubt find fresh perspectives on the classic arguments that demonstrate how faith and reason go hand-in-hand.
"This book is a rare gem: a pithy, engaging and creative book on logic and basic philosophy that is never dull, pedantic or even predictable," says Carl Olson, editor of Catholic World Report and author of Did Jesus Really Rise from the Dead? "Severino's gifts as a thinker and communicator are as impressive as they are unassuming."
