Two Thumbs Up for John Loftus’s Book, Why I Became an Atheist

Two Thumbs Up for John Loftus’s Book, Why I Became an Atheist April 14, 2014

Why I Became an AtheistI just read John Loftus’s book, Why I Became an Atheist. I hope to write something a bit more substantial later on, but for now wanted to mention my initial thoughts.

I give this book two thumbs way up. In addition to courageously sharing his personal story, Loftus applies his considerable training and expertise into developing a cumulative case against Christianity and for atheism. I cannot think of another book like it on the market. Loftus is clearly familiar with the work of evangelical apologists like Copan, Craig, Geisler, and Moreland, as his book is filled with references to their work and objections to their arguments. In fact, his book might best be described as a “counter-apologetics” textbook.

Anyone who reads this blog but has not yet read Why I Became an Atheist should do so.
