Today's popular champions of atheism are often called New Atheists, because they don't just deny God's existence (as the old atheists did), t hey consider it their duty to scorn and ridicule religious belief. But there's nothing really answer about their arguments. They're the same basic objections to theism that mankind has wrestled with for centuries.
We don't 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 atheist sincerity and good will making this book suitable not just for believers but for skeptics and seekers too.
Meticulously researched, and street-tested in Horn work as a pro-God apologist, Answering Atheism tackles all the major issues of the debate.
Answering Atheism gets high grades on the three R's: It is readable, reasonable, and researched. Its defense of the cosmological argument has depth and detail, yet it is not so technical that you need to take a philosophy course to comprehend it.
