Gunning For God: Why The New Atheists Are Missing the Target

Tackling Stephen Hawking, Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, and the likes of the late Christopher Hitchens head on—Dr. John Lennox (Professor of Mathematics at Oxford) points out some of the most glaring fallacies in the New Atheist approach in this insightful book. Since the twin towers crashed to the ground on September 11, there has been no end to attacks on religion. Claims abound that religion and Christianity in particular is "dangerous", that it "kills", and that it "poisons everything". And if religion is the problem with the world, say the New Atheists, the answer is simple—get rid of it. Of course, things aren’t quite so straightforward. Arguing that the New Athiests' irrational and unscientific methodology leaves them guilty of the very obstinate foolishness they criticize in dogmatic religious folks, this clear, beautifully worded, wide-ranging response to the atheists' fiercest attacks is a 20' intellectual wrecking ball against a one foot tall atheistic stronghold made of sand and popsicle sticks. Lennox, who has three earned PhDs (from Cambridge even!), completely out smarts, out reasons and out debates the Goliaths of the atheistic community. And he does so with humility and love because he's a Christian, who loves and follows Jesus.
