In recent years, the publication of best-selling books by Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, Sam Harris and Christopher Hitchens has given rise to the New Atheism. For the New Atheists, belief in God is a delusion because it is based on faith rather than evidence, and because science has removed the need for God; and it is a dangerous delusion because it is responsible for much of the suffering throughout the world. These characteristics distinguish New Atheism from other forms of atheism.

Drawing on recent work in the philosophy of religion, David Glass addresses the issues raised by the New Atheists, responds to their objections, and presents a positive case for Christian theism. He shows that the New Atheists fail to engage seriously with the best theistic arguments, and that science, far from undermining belief in God, provides some of the best reasons for such belief. His valuable analysis also explores how faith and reason interact; miracles; the relationship between religion, morality and evil; the possibility of revelation from God; and the historical value of the Gospels and the reality of the resurrection of Jesus.

Review:

This book represents Christian apologetics at its finest. David Glass's grasp of the material is both broad and deep and very impressive; there is no aspect of the New Atheism which is left unexamined. Whilst always fair to his opponents we are treated to a tour de force which is second to none. This is a clear, accessible, well-reasoned critique of Dawkins, Hitchens, Dennett, Harris et al. and a positive presentation of the credibility of the Christian faith. --Melvin Tinker, Vicar of St John, Newland, Hull

David Glass gives a sustained, measured, and carefully reasoned but ultimately devastating critique of the arguments and rhetoric of the present day cult of new atheism - a real joy to read. --Rodney D. Holder, Course Director, The Faraday Institute, St Edmund's College, Cambridge

The New Atheists are certainly vocal, but are they also reasonable? In this remarkably accessible book, David Glass exposes their frequent failure to understand what they attack, meticulously assesses their arguments, and then goes beyond critique to present a many-sided positive case - scientific, historical, and philosophical - for Christian theism. No other work on this subject combines such wide scope with such consistently high quality. --Timothy McGrew, Professor of Philosophy, Western Michigan University
