Book Description

Endorsed by Mary Eisenhower (President Eisenhower Granddaughter), “Is There a God? How Do You Know?” is a touching reflection of its author, Ken Shores.. Ken has lived a life of multi-paths that have included everything from military service to the corporate world to humanitarianism. Through all of the facets of his life, his triumphs and tragedies, I have never known his faith to waiver. He eloquently reveals this in his book, which is by far one of the greatest testimonials I have ever read.

Sample Chapter

Dr. Jeffress, Pastor First Baptist Dallas --I am excited about Kenneth Shores’ new book Is There A God? How Do You Know?

Everyone who wants to be assured of the reality and love of God should read this wonderful volume.


We live our lives based on our power to determine RIGHT from WRONG.

This book is about you the reader, based on inspiration from the Author’s Life Experiences. You will identify the struggles, questions and worldly influences that kept the author from understanding who God really was. We at times all question God’s reality from childhood into our teen years. How could a loving God let so many bad things happen? God reveals many miracles that was witnessed first-hand. This proved God was in full control of things even when we doubted God’s existence. Readers will identify with experiences, both good and bad. Then you will see that God really is the WAY, THE TRUTH and the LIFE. It will be up to you to decide – IS THERE A GOD? HOW DO YOU KNOW?


Chicago was a real challenge, especially because it was during the time of organized crime. School, the movies, a nearby park and other places of enjoyment were within three miles of our apartment, so you usually walked to all those places.

On one of those walks, late on a Saturday afternoon, my friends and I were just returning home from a movie we had thoroughly enjoyed. We’d already parted company, and I was alone as I watched two men drag a man and woman from an elevated train station. I was in a position where I could see them, but they couldn’t see me. Their half-hidden guns exposed, when they drug the couple to a car where a third man opened the back door. The two were forced inside, and I watched as the car drove off……complete story in book.

One day, my dad charged into my apartment and started throwing dishes and knives at me. Fortunately, Sam stopped him and told his wife, Mary, to call the police. I was taken to a wayward house until a hearing date was set. I don’t know what went on in front of the judge because I was kept in a different room. At the end of the hearing, I was escorted into the courtroom…… complete story in book.

First, the cannon was released and then the jeep. Their parachutes opened almost immediately upon exiting the plane. The Sergeant told us to stand and hold on to the cord above our heads. If we didn’t, we might fall through the opened back doors. The side door was released, and the first soldier was told to jump. He hesitated, so the Sergeant gave him a push. In a matter of seconds, he was out of sight. After that, most of the others didn’t need to be ‘coaxed’……… complete story in book.

Two Army doctors came in to see me the next morning. I was heavily sedated and don’t remember much that went on during the first night. They explained my leg was in bad shape, and they would do what they could to save it. I was told the hole in my leg was packed with ointment, and a compressed bandage held everything together. Shots and medicine were prescribed and nurses administered them for my infection and pain…… complete story in book.

The following year, Chicago set the record for the coldest day in our history. The temperature dropped to 26 below zero with a 30 MPH wind. The ten o’clock evening news said that if we went outside and poured water from a glass at arm’s length, it would be ice by the time it hit the ground. I had to try it, so I bundled up and walked out onto our patio. As I poured the water … complete story in book.

The start of events in 1976 changed my family’s lives and mine in a major way. In my own life, my personal relationship with God was the biggest change of all. It first began when I responded to a phone call asking me to allow another company’s top executive (not Motorola) to meet with me for a long lunch…… complete story in book.

MKING A DEAL WITH GOD Texas Instruments paid for everything: my air flight, hotel, rental car, food and any other cost that might come up. Before saying ‘yes’ or even telling my wife, I told them I would call them the next day. That’s when I went to my modified basement, and in the utility room, I began to pray to God for guidance. I said to Him, “God, if you will help me find a place where best to raise my family, I will become more involved in church, but I cannot guarantee to attend every Sunday…..complete story in book.
