In the second edition, theologian Joel Swokowski provides additional insights and commentary, further enriching the understanding of these models and helping first-time readers avoid the misinterpretations experienced by prideful religious leaders.

Obscurity, "Heresy," & The Impact of Modeling God
The Story of Newton's Principia: From Obscurity to Scientific Breakthrough
Centuries ago, a groundbreaking book was published. It contained the fundamental principles of physics known today as “Laws.” The book began with precise definitions and then built models based on those definitions.
Despite its significance, the book had a limited circulation and soon went out of print. Legend has it that one of Newton's students once quipped, "There goes a man who wrote a book that neither he nor others understand" upon seeing him.
However, ten years later, Newton's "Principia" became the go-to source for scientific inquiries, answering various scientific questions. The king himself, who realized the book's scope, asked incredulously, "Is he even human?"
People pleaded with Newton to write more books, but he declined. It wasn't until over 25 years later, in 1713, that he published the second of three books that would become one of the most significant works in science history.
Controversy Surrounding "Modeling God: The Meaning of Life"
Likewise, the book "Modeling God: The Meaning of Life" was initially published in 2007, had limited circulation, and soon went out of print. Shortly after the book was published, the author faced personal attacks from religious authorities who accused him of heresy. These actions not only contradicted the teachings of Jesus but also violated the state's laws on defamation and committed abominations to the Lord.
During this time, the religious authorities were unwilling to meet with the author. More concerning was their hindrance to the people seeking help, as they failed to provide effective answers to those in need.
When the author chose to abide by Jesus' teachings of not defending oneself, it led to the religious authorities feeling validated in their judgment of both the author and "Modeling God: The Meaning of Life". As a result, they went to great lengths to defame the author's reputation, which persists even to this day.
16 Years Later: The Impact of Modeling God on Mental Health and Spiritual Growth
Discover how this book helped numerous individuals cease using antidepressants, anxiety, and bipolar medication in just 16 years since its publication. Moreover, it predicted the decline of the church in America by challenging the notion of eternal damnation based upon the idea that God's nature is “love” and grace is "unmerited favor."
The book aims to restore people's lives, as the apostle Paul taught in Galatians 6, by enabling them to bear their own burden and gain control of their lives intentionally. Only then can they surrender control to God, as one cannot give something they do not have.
Apart from gaining a better understanding of the Bible, readers have reported hearing from God more clearly and frequently as a result of reading this book. The book clarifies the definitions of key words such as God, salvation, faith, grace, and love, which are crucial in understanding God's message.
Experience a better understanding of the Bible and improve your communication with God by reading this life-changing book. Now available with additional commentary by Joel Swokowski.Purchase eBook
Meet J.G. Lenhart
J.G. Lenhart has degrees in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. First and foremost, he is a modeler. His ability to understand the Bible in a non-contradictory manner led to determining a model for the human brain and nose connection. Eventually, he used the Bible to determine the only non-contradictory model for the mind and brain. Modeling God is the first of three books that present a non-contradictory Christian worldview.
