I’ve done forty or fifty radio interviews over the years, but I found this exchange with Dr. Michael Brown on his program “The Line of Fire” to be one of the most enjoyable. Dr. Brown is a conservative evangelical and I’m a progressive evangelical. But his deportment in intellectual exchange is generous and courteous. And […]
Is the Atheist My Neighbor?
Need I say more? You can purchase the Kindle edition for a mere $9.99 at Amazon here. It’s also available in Kindle at Amazon in (… big intake of breath …) the United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, France, Spain, Brazil, India, Japan, Italy, and Mexico. 🙂 But not, apparently, Tuvalu, Liechtenstein or Seychelles. 🙁
Catholic apologist Matt Fradd recently interviewed me on Is the Atheist My Neighbor? You can read the interview, titled “Why Christians Should Rethink Their Attitudes Towards Atheists,” at his website. Unfortunately the print interview loses Matt’s cool Australian accent (Matt’s an Aussie living in the US). So you should also check out his videos while […]
When I was writing Is the Atheist My Neighbor? I wanted to have a chapter devoted to dialogue with an atheist. After all, the best way to gain perspective and nuance regarding the views of another belief community is to invite a representative of that community into conversation. However, not just any member of the […]
The Storymen Podcast features three wild and crazy guys, Matt Mikalatos (I review Matt’s book Imaginary Jesus here), Clay Morgan (I interview Clay about his zombie-themed book Undead: Revived, Resuscitated, Reborn here), and JR Forasteros (I write about JR’s coolness credentials here). I was on the Storymen Podcast once before to talk about heaven, so […]
Jesus never addressed the topic of atheism. That fact is hardly surprising since there weren’t any atheists in the ancient Greco-Roman world, and certainly not in the region of Judea and Palestine in which Jesus lived his life. Nonetheless, Jesus’ subversive teaching, so beautifully captured in the Parable of the Good Samaritan, has much to […]
If you are a blogger interested in a review copy of Is the Atheist My Neighbor? you can email me at the contact section for my website. Send me your name, mailing address, and blog URL and I will forward the request to the publisher. If you prefer an ebook (which should be available in a […]
This one was a real surprise. Apparently somebody in the Washington press gallery snapped this picture the other day of the U.S. president reading my new book. The reporter then asked Obama why he was reading Is the Atheist My Neighbor? and he replied: “If Randal can unite atheists and Christians, maybe I can unite […]
At long last, Is the Atheist My Neighbor? is in stock at Amazon.com. And you can order it by turning in the direction of this arrow and clicking on the widget. How’s that for simple?! (Unfortunately, it’s a bit more complicated if you’re reading this on a smart phone.) So join the revolution and read […]
The picture speaks for itself. Here I am hanging out with my main man, Richard Dawkins. Apparently he loves my new book Is the Atheist My Neighbor? although he still thinks I’m a “faithhead”. Oh well, you can’t win ’em all!
Do atheists hate God? Many Christians seem to think so. For the last three centuries Christians have widely assumed that atheism is always a result of a rebellious, sinful rejection of God. According to this view, at some level atheists really do know there is a God, but they sinfully suppress this knowledge because they […]
I have interviewed many folks on this podcast — theologians, Christian apologists, atheists, philosophers, scientists, pastors — but I have never had the opportunity to sit down with myself. Until now. In this episode of The Tentative Apologist Podcast I am delighted to chat with myself about my new book Is the Atheist My Neighbor? […]
