    The author is Daniel Taylor, and it is an excellent book. Even as good
    as it is, the best part of it is the title. Everyone (scientists,
    Christians, atheists) seems to be pursuing a myth that they can have

    Unfortunately, the book was out of print about 10 years ago unless it
    has been republished (I bought multiple discounted copies when it was
    going out of print I liked it so much).
