In this volume, author John Blanchard engages with the so-called “new atheism” promoted by Richard Dawkins in his books The God Delusion and The Greatest Show on Earth. He concisely—but clearly—outlines Dawkins’ views and arguments, deftly demonstrates how shallow and illogical they often are, and provides God-centered alternatives that are altogether superior. Blanchard tackles such subjects as the importance but limitations of science, the origin and significance of morality, and Dawkins’ abysmal ignorance of theology and the Bible. He then goes on to explain the nature of true faith before ending with a clear presentation of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
