Richard Dawkins posted the letter on his own website, and the response Robertson got from those who read it there inspired him to keep writing. In conversational, colloquial prose Robertson brings up questions and Christian angles on some of the issues in Dawkins' book. Addressing what he calls "atheist myths", the author uncovers Dawkins' secular scientific bias without assenting to the false dichotomy between science and Christianity. A less in-depth study than some (such as The Dawkins Delusion? by Alister and Joanna McGrath) but more a personal and engaging invitation to Christians and non-Christians alike who have questions about these issues unanswered by Dawkins himself.

As with any movement, there are an elite few influential leaders who are leading the charge, especially through books and other media. One such influential leader amongst the skeptics is Oxford professor Richard Dawkins. His well-known book The God Delusion (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2006) is still wildly popular several years after its publication with some 1693 reviews on Amazon. A non-fiction book with this many reviews five years after its publication clearly has a following. As we consider the level of influence garnered by books like The God Delusion that oppose a Christian worldview, an important question Christians need to ask themselves is, "How should a Christian respond?"
One person who decided to respond to Richad Dawkins is David Robertson. During the winter of 2006-2007, he wrote a series of open letters responding to concerns raised by Dawkins in The God Delusion. The first of these letters made its way to Dawkins' web site and received numerous responses. The chord that his letter seemed to have struck, encouraged David to write more letters in response to Dr. Dawkins, which ultimately led to the creation of this book. Robertson's aim is "to challenge some of the basic myths Dawkins uses and encourages in his book, in order that you may think and consider these things for yourself." (p. 9). With the exception of the introductory letter to the reader and the final letter to Dawkins (new to the revised edition), there are ten letters in the book, each of which correspond to a chapter in Dawkins' book and responds to one or more of the atheist myths that are discussed in that chapter.
The writing style of these letters feels very conversational, coming across as humorous, friendly, and deeply pastoral. If you happen to be reading The God Delusion or have a friend or acquaintance who is reading it, I would suggest picking up a copy of The Dawkins Letters to read in conjunction with Dawkins' book in order to get a balanced perspective. The Dawkins Letters is widely available from Amazon, Westminster Books and elsewhere.
David Robertson is a columnist, author and pastor of St. Peter's Free Church of Scotland in Dundee.
