Books by Pastor Ellis Potter

3 theories of everything

What is reality? What is the meaning of human life? Why do we suffer?

In this concise volume, international speaker Ellis Potter explores three major worldviews that propose radically different answers to these eternal questions. In clear and compelling language, Potter shows us that the three worldviews, and the unique hope that each offers to humanity, have profoundly different consequences for how we see everyday reality and the ultimate purpose of our lives.

How do you know that?

How do we know anything? Do we know because ‘science says so’ or because ‘the Bible tells me so’ or because ‘it just feels right, and I know it inside myself’? Do we know everything in the same way? Can different ways of knowing fit together in one life and reality? In this concise volume, the second book of a trilogy, international speaker Ellis Potter shows how four basic ways of knowing can be integrated to make us more fully human. His first book—3 theories of everything—has been translated into fourteen languages since its publication in 2012.
