Christian Responses to the Challenge of Atheism
The New Atheists have claimed reason, God's gift to us for our life in his image and for his glory, as their brand in opposition to God. In this they are vulnerable, for their arguments are riddled with fallacy and with appeals to misinformation and emotion rather than evidence and logic.True Reason intends to expose that failure and to demonstrate that Christianity, not atheism, is the worldview that provides a coherent basis for the very existence and use of reason, and indeed for all of life.
This series of essays addresses the core of atheism's challenges. Written by some of the leading Christian theologians and philosophers of our day, True Reason walks the reader through atheism's key arguments and demonstrates their weaknesses,supplanting them with the strong rationale of Christian faith.

"People of faith are biased. This critique is tossed so often at those who express faith in a personal God that we forget that those who express faith in atheism and secularism are often guilty of bias too. There is no evidence to support that the loud, dominant secular voices of those like Dawkins or Harris have secured their belief via reason. In fact, the evidence shows the opposite. Their loud diatribes and definitive conclusions show a lack of reason, and this book points this out. Reasonable people will take this content seriously." -- John Stonestreet
