After a decade of major disappointments, Timothy Morgan was ready to reject God. Atheism offered an escape--an opportunity to dismiss God permanently.
But as Morgan delved into the thinking of great atheists past and present, he was stunned. In book after book, he found their reasons for rejecting God to be intellectually unfulfilling.
In Thank God for Atheists he candidly shares his journey by letting atheists speak for themselves, examining their logic to see whether it holds up or not. Along the way, deals with these key questions:
- What are the key elements of the atheist worldview?
- Who are the leading modern-day atheists, and what are they saying?
- How can you effectively respond to atheism?
- You'll find this a personal and thoughtful book on why the evidence for God is much more compelling than the evidence against Him.

Tim Morgan candidly shares about a journey in which he rejected God and pursued atheism. Yet as he delved into the writings of atheists, he found their reasons for rejecting God to be intellectually unfulfilling. A well-researched and thought-provoking book on why the evidence for God is much more compelling than the evidence against Him.
Ever wondered if we can be skeptical about skepticism and what its history is? Then Tim Morgan's Thank God for Atheists is for you. Here is a walk through the terrain of skeptical arguments with a former skeptic who knows how they think. It is a fascinating and important tour of a world many people do not understand. A careful read will equip you for meaningful conversation with anyone that doubts and says, 'Why would you believe that?' Turnabout is fair play and this book shows why.

Sometimes faith need to get shaken in order to be rebuilt stronger than before. Tim Morgan's spiritual and intellectual journey to rediscovering his faith (with the unlikely help of Dawkins, Hitchens, and Harris) will help anyone searching for solid ground to build from.

While I disagree with much of Tim's arguments in his book as many atheists like myself will relate to, I did find this to be an insightful and easy to read book. A must-read for atheists who are interested in the struggles and triumphs that religion can cause in the mind of a believer.

This is a must-read book for Christians - it's an excellent, concise look at the atheist worldview that is becoming increasingly influential in our culture. Tim has done a fantastic job of boiling the issues down to the most pertinent points every Christian should understand. Thank God for Atheists is an especially valuable guide for Christian parents who want to be equipped to discuss those points with their kids.

Debbie from ChristFocusHarrison, ARAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Logical, concise, and his reasoning was easy to followOctober 8, 2015Debbie from ChristFocusHarrison, ARAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"Thank God for Atheists" is an apologetics / worldview comparison book. It's a book that I can honestly see both atheists and Christians finding interesting. The author made every effort to accurately summarize the views of the atheists that he discussed in this book (Friedrich Nietzche, Bertrand Russell, Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins). He offered the living authors the chance to read his summary of their views and comment on it (which Dawkins did), and he asked atheist groups to do the same with his summaries of the dead authors.
The author started by explaining his Christian upbringing and why he started looking for convincing reasons to believe God doesn't exist. Then he discussed the long history of skeptical thought--the people throughout history and the world who questioned the religions of their area. He took four authors that he thought best expressed the arguments for atheism and who came at it from somewhat different angles. He provided a short biography for the author, summarized his views, then addressed those arguments. If several authors had the same argument, he picked the one who expressed it the best and only responded to it once.
I felt that the author did a good job of explaining why he didn't find these views logically compelling even though he wanted to be convinced. His writing was concise and his reasoning was easy to follow. I appreciated his respectful tone as people are more likely to listen when they feel like their view has been correctly heard and respectfully considered. I didn't always share his exact views, but I felt he did a good job of representing why Christians (and others) can find atheist arguments unconvincing. I'd highly recommend this book to those who want to dig deeper into the arguments for both sides.
I received an ebook review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley.
