Wilderness Cry by Hilary L. Hunt M.D. is a scientific and philosophical approach to understanding God and the universe. It addresses many controversial subjects such as the Bible, evil, the Trinity, Eternity, personality development, guilt, free will, marriage and sex, the legal system and many more topics.
It is very clear that the author did a lot of research through the very solid points he put forward. The author was much unbiased in his discussions, and it was refreshing to read a book that was not subject to any forceful personal beliefs but was instead much based on logic and clear reasoning. The reader was free to his reasoning about sin was my personal favourite. We only deem something a sin if negative consequences follow. I have always wondered about that, and I am happy someone was able to address it. Too often we judge people harshly for just being humans.
If you are someone who has always been interested in God but was turned off by organized religion, this is the book for you. It is for everyone no matter the sexual orientation, or religious beliefs. I especially liked that there was room for the reader to form their own opinion, whilst the author provided his own ideas and his reasons to support them. At some points, in the beginning, it felt like a science class which was a little tedious, however, it was well explained and it was necessary to explain several points. Also, the flow of the book was great, which made it even more enticing.
I had no expectations when I started reading this book but I was indeed curious to see how the different ideas would have been put together, and I am pleased that I got to read this book. Many of the questions I have had before, even things I never thought of were addressed. There is nothing I did not like about this book, and I found myself pleasantly surprised when going through the chapters. Overall I found the book informative and enjoyable and I learned a few things throughout.
I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars as there are no obvious editorial errors, it was well written and it was a very good read. This book is perfect for book clubs or any other such activities, as it contains many points that could be discussed and enjoyed. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes reading.
