In There Is a God, one of the world's preeminent atheists discloses how his commitment to "follow the argument wherever it leads" led him to a belief in God as Creator. This is a compelling and refreshingly open-minded argument that will forever change the atheism debate.
Philosopher and former atheist Antony Flew set the agenda for modern atheism with his 1950 essay "Theology and Falsification," which became the most widely reprinted philosophical publication of the last half century. Flew has published over thirty books, including God and Philosophy, The Presumption of Atheism, and How to Think Straight. He spent twenty years as professor of philosophy at the University of Keele and has also held positions at Oxford, the University of Aberdeen, and the University of Reading. He now lives in Reading, England.
“Antony Flew’s book will incense atheists who suppose (erroneously) that science proves there is no God.”
“Flew couldn’t be more engaging and remain an analytic philosopher...”
“In clear prose and brief chapters, Flew explains the four lines of evidence that convinced him....An intellectual conversion of great significance.”
“The most lucid and penetrative pieces of philosophical theology to appear in years, altogether brilliant.”
“A most valuable and readable overview of the many evidential changes of landscape that 20th century science is furnishing to the oldest question in Western civilization: Is there a God?”
“Towering and courageous... Flew’s colleagues in the church of fundamentalist atheism will be scandalized.”
“A very clear and readable book tracing his path back to theism, revealing his total openness to new rational arguments.”
“This is a remarkable book in many ways.”
“This is a fascinating and very readable account …”
“A stellar philosophical mind ponders the latest scientific results. The conclusion: a God stands behind the rationality of nature.”
“Antony Flew not only has the philosophical virtues; he has the virtues of the philosopher. Civil in argument, relentlessly reasonable….”
“A fascinating record …it will come as a most uncomfortable jolt to those who were once his fellow atheists.”
“Flew’s exposition will be a source for reflective inquiry for many, many years...”
TaylorNebraskaAge: 18-24Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5Really good, but he doesn't go far enough!March 28, 2012TaylorNebraskaAge: 18-24Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I loved the book, though I kind of expected him to eventually say, "And now I'm a Christian!" He only gets from Atheism, to Deism, to Theism, and finally to monotheism. I wish I knew if he ever accepted Christ before he died... He even says at one point something like (I don't have the book in front of me), "The qualities this Creator must possess are strikingly similar to the qualities possessed by the God of Judeo-Christianity." It drove me nuts that he never got to the end conclusion: The Creator IS the God of Christianity!
However, it is a good, quick read that makes plain a lot of modern philosophy and offers some insight into what kind of questions Atheists just can't answer. Enjoy!

John G. Mcmillan5 Stars Out Of 5April 11, 2009John G. McmillanThe book is well written, easy to understand and really quite wonderful. It fully met my expectations. I was glad I had read Appendix A, The New Atheism by Roy Abraham Varghese prior to reading The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins. With respect to Appendix B, The Self-Revelation of God in Human History: a Dialogue on Jesus with N. T. Wright, the non-believing readers who open it will be believers when they put it down. Thats the claim Dawkins made for his book, wasnt it? In any case, Appendix B is positively thrilling. I must get more of N. T. Wrights books, especially those on the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
