Loxahatchee Author Dalton Phillips Publishes Religious Discussion

The Struggles of a Born-Again Agnostic, a new book by Dalton F. Phillips, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co.

The book analyzes the texts of the Bible to determine whether there is evidence that the books are divinely inspired, and explores the various authorships of most of the books in the Bible with the goal of ascertaining if the ascriptions of authorship are correct. The overarching theme of the book is that faith alone is not sufficient for religious belief; one must base belief on historical evidence and commonsense.

Phillips’ research and discoveries unprecedentedly explore — as no biblical scholar has — why faith alone is not sufficient to base the important beliefs of one’s life. In order to be more than simply a mere myth or legend, vital beliefs must be based on evidence and verifiable truth.

Phillips graduated from the University of Pennsylvania Law School in 1980. He worked as an attorney for the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, the General Services Administration and the Executive Office of the President during the administration of President George W. Bush. Phillips specialized in government contracts and construction litigation, and he retired from the active practice of law in 2016.
