Jim once asked an atheist if he had ever wrestled, even for a few
moments, with the thought that maybe God does exist. Absolutely!
the atheist said, to Jim's surprise. Years ago when our first child
was born I almost became a believer in God. As I looked down at
that miniature-but-perfect little human being in the crib, as I watched
the flexing of those tiny fingers and saw the dawning of recognition in
those little eyes, I went through a period of several months during which
I almost ceased to be an atheist. Looking at that child almost convinced
me there had to be a God.
