Gunning for God: Why the New Atheists are Missing the Target

Author(s): John Lennox


New ideas about the nature of God and Christianity that will give Dawkins' best friends and worst enemies alike some stimulating food for thought

Tackling Hawking, Dawkins, Dennett, Hitchens, and a newcomer in the field--the French philosopher Michel Onfray--John Lennox 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 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 erudite and wide-ranging guide to religion in the modern age packs some debilitating punches and scores big for religious rationalism.
