True Reason: Confronting the Irrationality of the New Atheism goes officially on sale tomorrow, March 1. Find it now at Amazon.com!
Published by Kregel Publications, this book is much more than a paper version of the earlier ebook. We’ve added two entirely new chapters, and we’ve revised the rest, with responses to atheist critiques and dozens of other updates.
Here’s what several noted authorities are saying about True Reason:
The essays in this volume show why the atheists’ ideas are not at all reasonable, whereas Christian beliefs do indeed deserve this description. If the press clippings of the New Atheists bother you, you may acquire some ammunition in the pages of this text. (Gary R. Habermas, Distinguished Research Professor, Liberty University & Theological Seminary)
With a clear message and respectful tone, this book challenges and convincingly refutes the claim of the New Atheists to own reason. (Michael Licona, PhD, Associate Professor in Theology, Houston Baptist University and author)
This book explains the clear difference between the weak thinking represented by the atheists at the Reason Rally, and the strong reasoning accessible through biblically informed thinking. (Rick Schenker, President, Ratio Christi Student Apologetics Alliance)
A compendium of fresh scholarship from contributors who are on the front line of apologetics today. (Alex McFarland, Director, The Center for Apologetics and Christian Worldview)
For my whole Christian life I’ve been saying, “My heart cannot rejoice in what my mind rejects.” Today’s New Atheists seem to be saying something like that: that we should only believe what’s within the bounds of evidence and sound reason. For them, that means we should choose atheism, but in reality nothing could be further from the truth. True Reason explains clearly and deeply how New Atheists have both missed and misunderstood the evidence that exists, and why Christianity is by far the better choice for the thinking mind and worshiping heart. (Josh McDowell, Author & Speaker)
The New Atheists claim the high road of reason, yet for all their bluster about rationality, careful, balanced, logically valid thinking has not been their strong suit. True Reason, by contrast, genuinely lives up to its title, and so much more. It takes on the stoutest challenges from the most notable voices on the other side and systematically dismantles them, yet with a grace, respect, and even-handedness rarely seen from their intellectual opposition. (Greg Koukl, President, Stand to Reason
Another important work in the growing list of books rebutting the New Atheism, True Reason is a refreshing, crisply argued critique of this movement s frequently ill-informed and ungrounded assertions about science, faith, and reason. (Paul Copan, Pledger Family Chair of Philosophy and Ethics, Palm Beach Atlantic University)
