WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT IS GOD JUST A HUMAN INVENTION?
Online Reviews: The Gospel Coalition I Apologetics 315
“Finally, a book about the ‘New Atheism’ that is not only hard-hitting, but also accessible and engaging for the average reader. Sean McDowell and Jonathan Morrow have assembled some of the finest thinkers in the Christian world and have turned them loose to provide clear and articulate answers to the questions ‘backyard skeptics’ in our lives ask. You get only a few pages into this book before you see the shallowness and blindness of the popular New Atheism and, by stark contrast, the rationality of belief in the God of the Bible. This is a book to buy for all of your skeptical coworkers, neighbors, or family members. Then challenge them to meet with you weekly as you work through the chapters. They (and you) will never be the same.”Craig J. Hazen

“Fashion trends come and go. Music trends come and go. New ways of challenging historical Christian faith come and go. Truth lasts. But sadly, many miss the difference between truth and trends. In another time period of challenges to faith, this book provides well-thought- out, intelligent, and very practical responses. These are the questions that we cannot ignore today. Sean McDowell and Jonathan Morrow guide us to see unshakeable truth in the midst of what can feel like unnerving and scary questions.”Dan Kimball

“Sean McDowell and Jonathan Morrow ask questions that deserve to be discussed between believers and their atheist friends. I hope this book will be a springboard for that dialogue. I, for one, want to debate it with them!”David Fitzgerald

From Back Cover:
Atheism is making a comeback. From bookstores to bus campaigns, the question of God is up for public debate–and well-known atheists like Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens are leading the charge. While these authors, who have been dubbed “The New Atheists,” argue against religion in general, they aim most of their criticisms and complaints at the world’s largest religion–Christianity. Why are people reading books that bash God and ridicule faith? And how can Christians respond?
The writings of the New Atheists are especially challenging to the emerging generation who are skeptical of authority and have not been given answers to the hows and whys of faith’s honest questions. For these readers especially, authors Sean McDowell and Jonathan Morrow have penned an accessible yet rigorous look at the arguments of the New Atheists. Writing from a distinctively Christian perspective, McDowell and Morrow lay out the facts so that the emerging generation can make up their own mind after considering all the evidence. Divided into two parts–the first addressing the scientific and philosophical challenges to belief in God and the second dealing with the moral and biblical challenges–Is God Just a Human Invention? will respond to each major argument in a way that is balanced, thorough, and easy to understand.
McDowell and Morrow believe that the current religious landscape is both an opportunity and a challenge for people of faith. Now is the time to respond.
