To Know God by Anthony D'Augustine is a journey of faith and makes readers aware of the power and presence of God in everybody's lives. The book also reminds readers that what they smell, see, hear, taste, and feel are all God's creation for their spirit and though he wants everyone to appreciate the gifts he has given, he does not want them to be the focus of their lives. Finding God always begins with the belief that God exists and it is this belief that leads to the understanding that God's love is infinite. The author also discusses the compatibilities between science and religion. While science is tangible and logical to a young person, religion is not; it is mysterious and abstract. Through this book, the author tries to help readers understand how the two areas of study complement each other and thereby gives a reason for humanists, rationalists, objectivists, and other nonbelievers to have faith in God.

The connection between science and religion will make readers think and Anthony D'Augustine speaks about it extensively. Theologians recommend looking for God in the silence of the heart, in love, mercy, justice, compassion, and religion. There are many aspects to Christianity and the author, through the chapters, deals with the Incarnation of Jesus, his Miracles, Transfiguration, and his Resurrection. There is much science and theology discussed in connection with religion and God. To Know God may need a couple of reads because there is a lot of information that requires re-reading and reflecting upon. What science and religion agree on is that all human beings 'exist not solely as individual entities, but as a universal presence moving both internally and externally at different frequencies'.
