Publisher's Description

If you're looking for clear-cut answers to difficult questions about God--or for your guy to score a quick knock-out of a toughened sparring partner--then this book is not for you. But if you're open to an authentic, no-holds barred, respectful dialogue about one of life's most important issues, then take up and read. There are no straw men here. Sparked by a chance meeting between two book-club acquaintances and their discussion of Kurt Vonnegut's obituary, this dialogue between long-time Christian Jim Sire and forthright atheist Carl Peraino developed through extended email exchanges exploring minds and brains, science and morality, faith and reason, God and violence, doubt and rhetoric. You'll find much to ponder, weigh and explore in this lively, down-to-earth book. A study guide is included if you wish to delve deeper into any of the issues raised.

    there are few better to give a defense of biblical Christianity than James Sire, but even he can't win his atheist friend over. Just goes to show it's really in the heart, not the head. Excellent book, with tough give and take between the two. Much to learn from Sire's presentation. Good for apologetics. I won't list all the give and take. That's why you buy the book. To learn. Great book for the price. Buy it.
