This funny, tender, and inspiring little book offers 1,001 reminders for the faithful—and for doubters, too.
“There is a God!” Who hasn’t uttered these words in response to life’s true miracles? A glorious sunset. Watching your toddler take her first wobbly steps. And that supreme blessing: a hospital gown that closes all the way. In this book, New York Times–bestselling author Richard Smith and Maureen McElheron identify 1,001 miracles that prove that there is in fact a God, including:

- Watching your little girl struggle with an ice-cream cone that appears bigger than she is
- Fireflies on a June night
- Knowing that your ability to explain the difference between hollandaise sauce and béchamel impresses the hell out of your date

There Is a God! will remind you of all the many things that make life wonderful.


“It was hard to resist Richard Smith and Maureen McElheron’s book, There Is a God!, particularly
because of the subtitle “1,001 Heartwarming (and Hilarious) Reasons to Believe”. Actually, some are heartwarming, some funny, and some a little naughty. It’s a fun little book, and some of the comments actually do make you think. There is a God! is a charming little book. You can zip through it, or you can pick it up, and think about the little miracles of life. I know the person who will enjoy this, and I’ll be giving my copy as a gift. I think you’ll want to read it first, though, to identify some of the little things in life that you never thought of as miracles.”
