This summary of the arguments that dominate the current scene of thought unravels the philosophies behind modern popular and academic culture. Veale, a high school teacher, uses these arguments to motivate readers to stop and to think about their own direction and purpose, and ultimately, through consideration of the crucial questions, to find the vital answers.
Graham Veale is the head of the Religious Education department at the City of Armagh High School, Armagh, Northern Ireland and co-founded saintsandsceptics.org, a web ministry for apologetics. Graham has been married to Nicola for fifteen years and they have two children, Ben and Rebekah. They worship at Richhill Presbyterian Church in County Armagh.
... a book that helps penetrate the attacks of the modern atheist and equips us to think through what we believe and why.
If you are a Christian who has been sneered at, or an atheist who sneers, then you should think about reading this book, and while you read it - think!
With common sense and uncommon clarity, Graham Veale surveys the popular arguments of the New Atheists that have given so many people intellectual indigestion.
I suggested to Richard Dawkins that his simplistic rhetoric generated more heat than light. Dawkins agreed and Graham Veale shows why!
A superb response to the New Atheism's objections to belief in God and the Christian faith... For students whose faith is under attack, this is the survival guide you need.
This is a great wee book which is an excellent introduction to and summary of, the current controversy surrounding the New Atheism... Highly recommended!
Sophisticated and positive case for the rationality of Christian belief.
