Publisher's Description

We are living in an increasingly secular age where man seeks to build his own life without recourse to his Creator God. Under the guise of rationalism Christianity is ridiculed as out of dateor irrelevant. God and the Atheist answers the most fundamental questions about Christianity, such as: How do we know there is a God? How do we know there is only one God? How do we know the Bible is the word of God? In each chapter, Paul Ferguson evaluates and sets out the evidence to answer the atheists objections to the existence of God. In a readable and humorous style he precisely builds a remorselessly logical case using his legal and scientific skills to guide the objective reader to discover the truth of who God is. Although the discussion often veers into the academic, Ferguson works hard to make it understandable to those without a scientific background.

    First off, the title is misleading. This book isn't written from an analytical perspective as one might expect from a lawyer. This guy is a young earth creationist; so a more honest subtitle could be chosen to warn the reader that this is mostly fringe nonsense.

    If it's satire, then bravo! It reads as if Ferguson actually believes what he says. I suspect he actually does believe what he claims. Unfortunately, what passes for reason simply isn't--some of it's weird, some just silly. But a slightly discerning reader will be amazed that Ferguson can't see through his own rhetoric. He reads the bible like tarot cards or tea leaves taking small phrases and spinning tales about what they "really" mean. My favorite is the running water thing from Leviticus. Read the actual chapters in the bible to get an accurate image of the rituals, then decide if modern medicine should be gleaned from those texts! But Ferguson conflates medicine with magic---see his challenge to a student to use chemistry and medicine to reanimate a corpse (no joke, it's in this book!).

    Despite Fergusons' claim, Michael Behe has hardly stumped the scientific community. Fortunately, scientists these days continue to investigate the natural world despite the ID attempt to end the search with the proclamation that "God did it." To hear how Behe's claims stood up in an actual court, see Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District. (Ferguson's claiming to write as a lawyer!)

    Ferguson's book is aimed at the ill informed who'll be persuaded by empty emotional ploys. It fails as apologia. It fails as proselytizing. Perhaps it succeeds as an interesting look into a mind already given over to strange beliefs.
