The first review for Conversations with My Inner Atheist is out. Counter Apologist got a copy yesterday and reviewed it this morning. Wowsers, that’s fast. It’s also a very positive review. This is important because the purpose of the book is to steelman objections to my beliefs, so the fact that my exercise passed muster with an atheist that I respect means a lot.
Here are a couple of choice excerpts from the review:
“I read the book in a few short hours and it was engaging. Randal’s day job is a seminary professor and the book showcases his teaching bonafides as he illustrates complex philosophical and theological topics with easy to understand stories, examples, and plain good writing.”
“Inevitably there will be Christians who doubt that will remain in the faith and if that’s going to happen I’d prefer it was done with the well reasoned and honest arguments Randal presents instead of the false confidence pop-apologetics all too often instills in its readers. At least those Christians will appreciate the true nature of the debate being had.”
Oh yeah, and I can’t forget this:
“go buy a copy, for god’s sake!”
I could not agree more…
