  • An accessible discourse written by a trusted expert and scholar critiquing the new atheism on its own merits and claims.
    The rise of the new atheism, which includes the manifestos of Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens, has created a public willingness in today's marketplace to talk about God and religion. Yet the debate up to this point has focused largely on rebutting the new atheist critique of Christianity. Why God Won't God Away moves into new territory by challenging the new atheism on its own grounds. Chapters include discussion on:
    • What is the new atheism
    • The problem of religion
    • The problem of human nature
    • Believing only what can be proved
    • Dealing with imagined worlds and myths
    • The new humanism and the new enlightenment
    • Violence and dogmatism
    This book is written by a theology professor and Christian apologist who not only has a best-selling book rebutting the new atheist critique of Christianity but has debated Richard Dawkins in Oxford, Christopher Hitchens in Washington, and Daniel Dennett in London.
