Summary
A great assault upon faith has been launched in the last several years by an influx of bestselling books attacking religious belief. While denunciations of faith are not new, what is notable about these books is their contention that belief in God is not only deluded, but dangerous to society. Now, former Time senior correspondent and bestselling author David Aikman offers this spirited, articulate response to the four writers at the forefront of today's anti-faith movement: Sam Harris, Daniel Dennett, Richard Dawkins, and Christopher Hitchens. Aikman examines and refutes the arguments of these "evangelists of atheism," skillfully exposing their errors and inconsistencies. He convincingly argues that, in fact, it is atheism that poses the biggest threat to society. In making this case he explains the apparent motivations of atheists, encourages Christians to look closely at what atheists believe, and highlights the social problems that atheism has caused throughout the world. - Publisher
