Perhaps you would care to mention the book within the editorial text of your website, drawing from the material in the following text ad blocks. Or feel free to paste the html of the ad panel to the right, or that below, onto a page of your website. To help you do this, the following instructions refer to Internet Explorer, but something similar will apply to other browsers.
To get the relevant code to paste into your html source, select 'View > Source' within this window to open the source code listing window, then select 'Edit > Find' within that window to open a 'find' box; enter either 'long ad' or 'short ad' according to which length of ad you require, and you will find the highlighted the 'Start' and 'End' comments that bracket the relevant lines of html code (eg '<!-- Start Short Ad -->'). (The code will pick up the cover picture from this website, so you don't need to worry about copying the graphic itself.)
Copy all the code between the start and end comments and paste it directly into your own page as html. Format to any special requirements and then upload your page and check it. Ensure the book cover is displayed and that clicking it opens the 'Reality Check' home page on this site.

"The most abstract of concepts are communicated in a clearly digestible form… There is a tremendous need for the genre represented here: arguments which transcend the physical world. For many, if not most, the task of adequately preparing oneself to respond to such questions is simply too daunting. I appreciate the scholarly professionalism and the extensive referencing… [The author] rises to the challenge of what most would consider an extremely difficult calling." (James Revoir - Authonomy)
"This is a very intriguing piece. I believe there is a significant demand for such discussions... I especially appreciate the inviting style, which will definitely be a plus for more skeptical readers." (Faith Rose - Authonomy)
"The survey of arguments both for and against the existence of God provides the reader with a way to better compare and contrast different viewpoints… Presenting the strengths and weaknesses of all of these different viewpoints was one of the things I liked most. I was really interested to read these chapters because, as a mathematician and a Christian, while there may be perceived conflicts between science and religion, I believe there are no conflicts between the structures and systems of the universe and God. This book also explains things very well… [and is] accessible without sacrificing scientific integrity… I think the book will be enjoyed by many and will encourage lively discussion." (David Bortress - Authonomy)
"Extremely well written, researched and set out. Every point is very clear. The analogies are extremely imaginative and very effective. The passion in this work is powerful and every paragraph is thought provoking. The arguments are well thought through and persuasive... I would suggest that everyone reads it and think very carefully about what you say." (Gareth Naylor - Authonomy)
"'Reality Check' is an interesting and accessible book... that sets up the basic argument well, an intriguing one at that: proof of God in brain and mind being two different things, mind existing beyond the time-space continuum. At this stage my interest was piqued. I haven’t come across an argument like this before so it appears original... I was entertained and informed along the way and feel richer for the debate. Anyone interested in these themes would do well to have a read of 'Reality Check'." (Ross Clark - Authonomy)
