From Army Atheist to Saved by God, a Faith Journey Unlike Any Other

SKU-000985611Robert Morlan went from living on the streets to being an atheist in the army while still in his teens. It is this very decision that saved him, carrying him forward to the day he would become a pastor. He thanks God for his former atheism daily.

The life and lessons of Morlan are contained in his new book, “The Atheism That Saved Me.” When his wife lost two children at eight months pregnant, Morlan called out to God to reveal himself if He was indeed real . . . and so God did.

“I wanted to show the world what it takes to transform an atheist into a Christian,” said Morlan. “And on the other hand, sometimes Christians have trouble understanding the thought processes that drive someone into atheist beliefs. I want to help bridge that gap and increase mutual understanding.”

Morlan’s story also shows the impact that growing up in a broken home can have on where one starts in life. It is not always easy to find God when one is more concerned about finding the next meal.

“It’s a Christian’s duty to do everything they can to create a stable home for their children, which includes acknowledging the destructive results of divorce,” said Morlan. “Fragmented families present a challenge that can be difficult to overcome with faith alone.”
