Publisher's Description

The popular and bitter attacks on Christianity continue to escalate in the form of national bestsellers such as The God Delusion, Letter to a Christian Nation, and others. Given the momentum these “new atheists” have gained, it seems as though they are making a powerful case against Christianity. How can those who are believers respond?

In The Truth Behind the New Atheism, author David Marshall examines the wrong concepts of God that are being promoted today. Among the questions he deals with are...

  • Is the God of the Bible a cruel savage?
  • Has science refuted the Christian faith?
  • Has the Bible hurt the human race?
  • Is the Christian life based on nothing more than blind faith?

As he refutes the critics, Marshall offers powerful arguments in defense of Christianity—arguments that will enable readers to respond to this new confusion with great confidence and biblical accuracy.

    Arizona Atheist
    I've read this book twice but my opinions have not changed much after the second reading.The writing wasn't the best; oftentimes the author would go off track and talk about something seemingly unrelated to the subject at hand.My biggest problem with the book was the extremely poor arguments used. There were way too many appeals to authority; which don't really prove anything unless you provide evidence along with an experts' opinion, but Marshall didn't even bother to do this. Marshall's main target in his book is Richard Dawkins, who is oftentimes completely misrepresented in the book. Marshall accuses Dawkins of saying how Dawkins thinks that James Dobson wishes to take kids away from their parents, and that Dawkins wishes for children not to be taught religion by their parents. These claims are completely false, among others, as I prove in my review of this book on my blog called Arizona Atheist.Marshall's other claims that atheism is responsible for the Nazi and communist regimes is also false, as well as many of his claims about the bible. Being the apologist that he is, you'd think he would know more about what is in his bible but that didn't seem to be the case when you read his book. While reading, it didn't seem that Marshall understood some of the arguments that have been presented by the "new atheists." For example, seemed unable to understand the idea of an evolutionary origin to morals. He basically laughed off this research and didn't provide any counter evidence to these findings at all.Overall, this book, despite it being hailed as "providing substantial answers to hard questions," as the back of the book says, "about God and science," this book fails horribly. It also fails because, while the author does point out a few minor errors of the "new atheists," Marshall makes gaping errors with most of his own arguments, and doesn't come close to dismantling any of the main claims of the "new atheists."
