this book really made me think. it also made me do some research since i had never heard of blaize pascal. for those that do not know... he was a mathematician. the basic premise of this book is this: believing in God is an all or nothing gamble. if you believe in God and there is no God, what have you lost? nothing. but if you don't believe in God and God does exist then what have you lost? you've lost everything. blaize pascal used the analogy of a coin flip. you'd have to read the book for more detail.
