John Hansel will be in the store on Thursday, July 11th between 2pm and 4pm signing copies of his book, Amphibian Diaries: A Field Guide for Truth Seekers. This is a free signing. Amphibian Diaries is a Field Guide for Truth-Seekers. A little green stowaway, named BP, in the author's baggage teaches six principles for recognizing Truth. These principles enable genuine, interpersonal dialogue while searching for personal significance. The reader is invited to join the LifeBet, inspired by the philosophy of Blaise Pascal, which states that all of us live our lives by a bet we have made--there is a God, or there is no God. LifeBet participants commit to seven discussions about foundational life issues: Origin, Meaning, Morality, and Destiny. BP and the author argue that these high-level conversations, while difficult, are essential. They are made practical and effective with SEARCH, an acronym for the six principles: We all have a Soul with a hole, a need to be fulfilled by a significant and secure life. We have an intrinsic Expectation of satisfaction that we cling to by faith. We express our beliefs in terms of Answers to life's ultimate and necessary questions: Origin, Meaning, Destiny, and Morality. Our Reason to believe is always a matter of logical, empirical, and practical variables. Our beliefs are an expression of our view of the Correspondence between our ideas about reality and reality itself. Intrapersonal, interpersonal, and inspirational Humility is required for the entire conversation Life and God. Readers have access to a website with concise and insightful support materials as well as connection for interaction with the author and others: www.AmphibianDiaries.com. The book, the website, and the concept are all designed to move the reader in the direction of hope in a gentle and respectful manner. It presumes that if people genuinely seek Truth they will find themselves in the freedom of God's love.

But, BP Frog commissioned him to pass along the principles of truth-seeking to empower the SEARCH of others.

His hobbies often serve as subject matter for stories—their Golden Retriever service dogs and anything fast and daring, from speedboats and wave-runners to rappelling and sky-diving.
