True Reason Christian Responses to the Challenge of Atheism
Tom Gilson and Carson Weitnauer, eds. (Patheos Press: March 9, 2012), 202 pages.
While New Atheists like Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, and others proclaim loudly their rationality, clear thinking, and incontrovertible scientific arguments, others are beginning to wonder how genuinely rational they are. Have they proved anything? Have they argued convincingly? Have they pinpointed any real challenges to the credibility of Christian faith? True Reason, edited by Tom Gilson and Carson Weitnauer, brings together a compendium of writers — philosophers, apologists, ethicists, theologians, historians — who look carefully at the best arguments atheism has and evaluate their validity, logic, assumptions, and naturalist conclusions. Authors include noted philosopher William Lane Craig and popular apologist Sean McDowell, along with Gilson, Weitnauer, John DePoe, Chuck Edwards, Matthew Flannagan, Peter Grice, Randy Hardman, David Marshall, Glenn Sunshine, David Wood, and Samuel Youngs. Each chapter tackles a different atheist argument and brings reason fully into the discussion. Which is more reasonable: atheism or Christianity? Read True Reason and think for yourself. ~ Book Description
