Product Description

David Robertson, author of The Dawkins Letters, was told by the leader of an atheist society: "Okay, I admit that you have destroyed my atheism, but what do you believe?" His answer was "I believe in and because of Jesus." Magnificent Obsession shows us why Jesus is the reason to believe. In response to the shout of "God is not Great" by the late Christopher Hitchens, David shows us why Jesus is God and is Great.

Endorsements

This is a book to give Christians and non-Christians alike, for it takes on the many objections from both genuine enquirers and antagonistic opponents - and answers them knowledgeably, carefully and with understanding and sympathy. David Robertson clearly and compellingly tells us that the Good News of the Kingdom of God not only gives meaning and purpose to individual lives but also shows that God's Word, the Bible, has both the vision and the means by which we can rebuild our increasingly broken society. Sin (whether individual or corporate) is the killer disease and Christ is its only cure - at every level of human experience.
-Bob Graham,
Vice Chairman, Scottish Christian Party

David Robertson is so honest, acute and convincing, that I fear books like Magnificent Obsession will soon be banned by the new atheist censors, lest enquiring young sceptics presume to examine them.
-Dick Lucas,
Formerly Rector of St Helen's Bishopsgate, London

This book will put fire in your heart or a pebble in your shoe; but then Jesus always does. Written by a historian, for sceptics or believers, these letters are accessible, honest, powerful and life changing. In them you'll meet the Jesus of historical fact, and the author's obsession may become your own. I just wish Christopher Hitchens could have read it.
-John Ellis

My dad wrote a book. It's pretty great.
-Becky Milburn,
New South Wales, Australia

David Robertson has done it again. Building on his incisive response to Richard Dawkins atheism in The Dawkins Letters David has written another series of letters explaining how to respond to friends who say there is no proof for God. In his usual vigorous and engagingly personal manner David explains precisely why the Christian teaching about Jesus is intellectually, morally and emotionally credible. This is a book for you to read and give away. I therefore recommend that you buy as many copies as you can.
-John Lennox,
University of Oxford

David Robertson's speaking ministry and books are informed, insightful, full of wit and yet surprising depth. Robertson helps us to answer the common questions of skeptics with sensitivity, astuteness and a careful listening ear.
-Rebecca Manley Pippert
