A book that is helpful for people who do not know much about Skepticism and the rise of so called "New Atheism." Gives a little historical intro to the origination of the Age of Enlightenment, where most of these "New Atheist" get most of there philosophical ideology. Then the books gives you profiles of the of the big names and top contributors to the New Atheism movement. The book helps you understand what they believe and the agenda that they are pushing onto people, mostly young, college age adults, and kids.
R.Albert Molher Jr. gives a concise, yet thorough explanation into the dangers of the new atheist thinking. Well written and thought out. An excellent resource to understanding the dangers of atheism and the secularization of the west. A great introduction to the topic with language that any lay person might understand. Highly recommended.
I found it a concise description of the new atheism, about which I knew very little. It is a good introduction to the subject that I would like to pursue further. I may have to read this book again to grasp better the topic.
With clarity, simplicity, and insight, Al Mohler provides an overview of the New Atheism movement spearheaded by Dawkins, Dennett, Hitchens, and Harris. He notes what is new about the New Atheism when compared to older forms of atheism, and provides the main arguments each of these men make. In the third chapter he brings us up to date on the responses by evangelical academics like McGrath and Plantinga, showing their benefits and weaknesses. Lastly he shows how liberal theologians are responding to the New Atheism and ends with the conclusion that orthodox Christians must meet the challenge of both the New Atheism and trendy vague "spirituality" that many embrace. Well-written, concise, and non-technical, Mohler's book is a much needed introduction to the challenge the New Atheism poses to Christian belief.
