Gunning for God: Why the New Atheists are Missing the Target
2 in stock
Since the twin towers crashed to the ground on 9/11 there has been no end to claims that religion 'is dangerous', 'kills', or 'poisons everything'. And if religion is the problem with the world, say the New Atheists, the answer is simple: get rid of it. Though are things really so straightforward?
Tackling Hawking, Dawkins, Dennett, Hitchens and a newcomer in the field - the French philosopher Michel Onfray - John Lennox points out some of the fallacies in the New Atheist approach, arguing that their irrational and unscientific methodology leaves them guilty of the very obstinate foolishness they criticise in dogmatic religious folks.
Erudite and wide-ranging, Gunning for God packs some debilitating punches. However, it also puts forward new ideas about the nature of God and Christianity that will give Dawkins' best friends and worst enemies alike some stimulating food for thought.
"This is a powerful, hard-hitting yet accurate indictment of the 'New Atheists.'"?
