    WHY I AM A CHRISTIAN by Dr. Warren F. Larson. There are three reasons why the author is a Christian and why he feels he made the right choice. These are rooted in the first book of the Bible and traceable throughout its entirety.

Finally, "A Free Man's Worship", perhaps the most famous single essay written by Russell, considers whether humans operate from free will.
