Sproul, with penetrating psychological analysis and insight into the meaning of Scripture, explains that the popular dismissals of religion are not to be accepted blindly. Instead, he shows that atheists derive their unbelief from such psychological factors as fear of authority, fear of exposure, and fear of God's "otherness." He shows that there are as many psychological and sociological explanations for unbelief as for belief. Here is a clear, thought-provoking discussion for the believer who is troubled by doubts or who wants to respond intelligently to unbelievers. And it is for the unbeliever with an open mind.
