How to Make the Case for God with Logic and Charity
By: Trent Horn
Todays popular champions of atheism are often called New Atheists, because they dont just deny Gods existence (as the old atheists did)they consider it their duty to scorn and ridicule religious belief. But theres nothing really new about their arguments. Theyre the same basic objections to theism that mankind has wrestled with for centuries.
We dont need new answers for this aggressive modern strain of unbelief: We need a new approach.
In Answering Atheism, Trent Horn responds to that need with a fresh and useful resource for the God debate, combining a thorough refutation of atheist claims with a skillfully constructed case for theism based on reason and common sense. Just as important, he advocates a charitable approach that respects atheists sincerity and good willmaking this book suitable not just for believers but for skeptics and seekers too.
Meticulously researched, and street-tested in Horns work as a pro-God apologist, Answering Atheism tackles all the major issues of the debate, including:
Reconciling human evil and suffering with the existence of a loving, all-powerful God
Whether the empirical sciences have eliminated the need for Godor in fact point to him
How atheists usually deny moral laws (and thus a moral lawgiver) in theory but seldom in practice
Why the atheist symbol of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is a flawed analogy for theistic claims
