Answering Atheism: How to Make the Case for God with Logic and Charity


Catholic Answers 2013

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


In Answering Atheism, Trent Horn responds to today’s popular champions of atheism with a fresh and useful resource for the God debate, combining a thorough refutation of atheist claims with a skillfully constructed case for theism based on reason and common sense. Just as important, he advocates a charitable approach that respects atheists’ sincerity and good will—making this book suitable not just for believers but for skeptics and seekers too.

Meticulously researched—and street-tested in Horn’s work as apologist—Answering Atheism tackles all the major issues of the debate. Subjects covered include reconciling evil and suffering with the existence of a loving, all-powerful God, answering objections to arguments for God’s existence, and whether the empirical sciences have eliminated the need for God—or in fact point to him. Answering Atheism will both thoroughly equip readers to rebut atheists’ challenges and to share with them the good news that God is real.

Praise for the Print Edition

I’ve read many works of popular apologetics; this is the best.

—Stephen Bullivant, editor, The Oxford Handbook of Atheism

Answering Atheism gets high grades on the three R’s: It is readable, reasonable, and researched. Its defense of the cosmological argument has depth and detail, yet it is not so technical that you need to take a philosophy course to comprehend it.

Peter Kreeft, professor of philosophy, Boston College

If you read only one book that shows the reasonableness and beauty of belief in God, it should be Trent Horn’s Answering Atheism.

—Kevin Vost, author, Memorize the Reasons!
