Product Description

The aggressive assault on religion, and particularly Christianity, by the "New Atheism" has reached through the airways, and across the web. Writers such as Christopher Hitchens and Richard Dawkins have been as aggressive as they have been virulent against religion. But can their objections and arguments be answered?

That is the purpose of the multi-faceted book of essays, God is Good, God is Great: Why Believing in God is reasonable and Responsible written by leading scholars in cosmology, astrophysics, biology, theology, and philosophy including Alister McGrath, Scot McKnight, Gary Habermas, John Polkinghorne, J.P. Moreland, William Lane Craig, and Michael Behe, this book answers to the tough questions and engages the difficult answers.

Publisher's Description

2011 Outreach Magazine Book Award winner! 2010 Christianity Today Book Award winner! The days have passed when the goodness of God--indeed, the reality of God itself--could reasonably be called a consensus opinion. God's reputation has come under considerable review in recent days, with some going so far as to say that it's not we who've made a mess of things. Instead whatever it is we call God is to blame. But is such an opinion really a fair assessment? In this magisterial collection, the contemporary complaints against belief in God are addressed with intellectual passion and rigor by some of the most astute theological and philosophical minds of the day:
  • J. P. Moreland
  • Paul Moser
  • John Polkinghorne
  • Michael Behe
  • Michael J. Murray
  • Alister McGrath
  • Paul Copan
  • Jerry Walls
  • Charles Taliaferro
  • Scot McKnight
  • Gary Habermas
  • Mark Mittelberg
  • Chad Meister
  • William Lane Craig
Including an interview by Gary Habermas with noted convert to theism Antony Flew, and a direct critical response to Richard Dawkins's God Delusion by Alvin Plantinga, God Is Great, God Is Good offers convincing and compelling reassurance that though the world has changed, God has not.

Editorial Reviews

"There is no way, apart from deep and abiding spiritual blindness, that an atheist could read this book and walk away thinking belief in God is nonsensical, irrational, or unscientific."
"This book has plenty of food for thought for believing Christians (and unbelievers!) who need a reason to believe in Jesus Christ and the Church."
"The essays in this book are all clearly argued, and will reassure the already faithful that they are neither daft nor deluded."
It is reassuring that so gifted a pair of astute minds has taken time to respond to such works as Richard Dawkin's The God Delusion and Christopher Hitchen's God is not Great.
"Craig and Meister bring together cutting-edge essays that attest powerfully to the massive and growing evidence in favor of theism in general and Christianity in particular. Each essay responds to the charges made by the New Atheists, but this is by no means a polemical book. The writeres set a high bar for reasonable, responsible discourse, and they live up to it."
"Craig and Meister have assembled careful, thoughtful, credible, well-communicated views, which can be used to support, expand and individualize curriculum. These essays challenge and argue the New Atheists."

    This is a very good book but it is not for the beginner. You should have a thorough understanding of the major arguments for and against Christianity or you will be lost. The contributors of the book are all well known and experts in their field. It is about time something come out to address many of the arguments of the "New Atheists". Personally, their is only one that deserves credit and that is Christopher Hitchens.
