My New Book on the Kalam Available on Ebook October 14, 2016

My new book is available on ebook (Amazon [US, UK etc.], Kobo and Nook) for your reading pleasure. Please check it out! It concerns the Kalam Cosmological Argument and is called: Did God Create the Universe from Nothing? Countering William Lane Craig’s Kalam Cosmological Argument.

ebook cover

The paperback version should be released in a few weeks. Please spread the word! The book features a foreword by Jeffrey Jay Lowder, and chapters by Dr. James East and Counter Apologist (still annoying that in this day and age, in the States, people have to write under pseudonyms when writing about atheism!).

Let me know if you have any questions. The contents are below:
