Jr. Forasteros just reviewed God or Godless at his blog. You can read it here. He provides a helpful overview when he observes:
“each chapter is short, sweet and packed with rhetorical goodness. Both Randal and John are experts in their field, so their arguments are tight, clear and very accessible”
I especially appreciate the nod to the strategic use of rhetoric, for apologetic dialogue is as much about style and delivery as it is about content. (Consider a parallel: public speaking is as much about how you communicate as what you communicate.)
Bonus marks for Jr. because he is already using the book in a discussion group:
“I’m currently rereading the book with a group of 20-somethings”
This is indeed an excellent book for small group discussion. Based on the twenty chapters, I think a small group could discuss two (or four) of these chapters a week.
And here’s the conclusion:
“BOTTOM LINE: God or Godless is for anyone who wants to take earnest questions and civil dialog equally seriously. An easy, fun read that’s well worth your time.” (emphasis in original)
