In the face of increasing attacks on Christianity by militant new atheists, Christians should be able to robustly defend their beliefs in the language spoken by Christianity’s detractors—science. Atheists claim that science and religion are incompatible and in constant conflict, but this book argues that this is assuredly not true. In order to rebut the polemic agenda of the new atheists who want God banned from the public square, this book engages with the physical and natural sciences, social science, philosophy, and history. It shows that evidence from these diverse disciplines constitutes clear signposts to God and the benefits of Christianity for societies, families, and individuals. Answering the New Atheists begins by examining what new atheism is, before demolishing its claim that Christianity is harmful by showing the many benefits it has for freedom and democracy, morality, longevity, and physical and mental health. Many historians of science contend that science was given its impetus by the Christian principle that a rational God wants us to discover his fingerprints on nature. Thus, in subsequent chapters, Walsh presents a well-informed and philosophical-based analysis of the Big Bang and cosmic fine-tuning, the unimaginable improbability of factors that make this planet habitable, and the multiverse often called the “last refuge of the desperate atheist.” Interdisciplinary in its approach, this book adeptly explores the very problematic issues of the origin and evolution of life that have forced many top-rate scientists including Nobel Prize winners, who have thought deeply about the philosophical meaning of their work, to accept God as the Creator of everything.

Today's New Atheists don't just deny God's existence (as the old atheists did) - they consider it their duty to scorn and ridicule religious belief. We don't need new answers for this aggressive modern strain of unbelief: We need a new approach. In Answering Atheism, Trent Horn responds with a fresh and useful resource for the God debate, based on reason, common sense, and more importantly, a charitable approach that respects atheists' sincerity and good will, making this book suitable not just for believers but for skeptics and seekers too. Meticulously researched, and street-tested in Horn's work as a pro-God apologist, it tackles all the major issues of the debate, including: -Reconciling human evil and suffering with the existence of a loving, all-powerful God -Whether the empirical sciences have eliminated the need for God, or in fact point to him -How atheists usually deny moral laws (and thus a moral lawgiver) in theory

A recent string of popular-level books written by the New Atheists have leveled the accusation that the God of the Old Testament is nothing but a bully, a murderer, and a cosmic child abuser. This viewpoint is even making inroads into the church. How are Christians to respond to such accusations? And how are we to reconcile the seemingly disconnected natures of God portrayed in the two testaments? In this timely and readable book, apologist Paul Copan takes on some of the most vexing accusations of our time, including: God is arrogant and jealous God punishes people too harshly God is guilty of ethnic cleansing God oppresses women God endorses slavery Christianity causes violence and more Copan not only answers God's critics, he also shows how to read both the Old and New Testaments faithfully, seeing an unchanging, righteous, and loving God in both.

Were the Middle Ages dark for science? Did the pope say Darwin was right? From the Big Bang to Galileo, from the origins of life on Earth to the existence of life on other planets, The Catholic Church and Science clears away the fog of falsehood and misunderstanding to reveal a faith whose doctrines do not contradict the facts of science, but harmonize with them and a universe whose uncanny order and precision point not to chance assemblage by random forces, but to the purpose-built design of an intelligent creator. Author Ben Wiker (The Darwin Myth, A Meaningful World) takes on the most common errors that modern materialistic thinkers, convinced that faith and science must be mortal enemies, have foisted into popular culture. With great learning, clarity, and wit he tackles stubborn confusions many people have about the relationship between Christianity especially Catholicism and the empirical sciences, and separates truth from lies, the factual from the fanciful.

Weren't the Middle Ages dark for science? Didn't the pope say Darwin was right? Author Benjamin Wiker (The Darwin Myth, A Meaningful World) takes on the most common modern errors from the Big Bang to Galileo, from the origins of life on Earth to the existence of life on other planets, that modern thinkers have foisted into popular culture. The Catholic Church and Science clears away the fog of falsehood that preaches faith and science must be mortal enemies. It proves the doctrines of the Faith and the facts of science are not contradictory, but in fact, harmonize together. The Faith, in union with true science, illustrates a universe whose uncanny order and precision point to the purpose-built design of an intelligent creator. An excellent book separating fact from fancy about the relationship between Christianity especially Catholicism and the empirical sciences.

Resisting the typical, dry methods of contemporary scholarship, this powerful examination revisits the biblical days of life-and-death conflict, struggles for power between popes and kings, and secret alliances of intellectuals united by a desire to pit worldly goals against the spiritual priorities of the church. This account looks beyond the pretense of neutrality and objectivity often found in secular study, and brings to light the appropriation of scripture by politically motivated interpreters. Questioning the techniques taken for granted at divinity schools worldwide, their origins are traced to the writings of Machiavelli and Marsilio of Padua, the political projects of Henry VIII, Thomas Hobbes, and John Locke, and the quest for an empire of science on the part of Descartes and Spinoza. Intellectual and inspiring, an argument is made for bringing Christianity back to biblical literacy.

"In these times of turbulence around the world and great uncertainty about our collective future, we can discover joy and comfort in Mustafa Zaveri's beautifully written book." (Philip Zimbardo -- Professor Emeritus of Psychology at Stanford University and Conductor of the Stanford Prison Experiment)."Terrific little book. It would make a great text for an upper undergraduate or introductory graduate course in evolutionary behavior/psychology. But also a great introduction for the non-academic reader. The personal odyssey is moving and inspiring and will connect with many readers. I started cautiously not expecting much but couldn't put it down. Someone should publish this little gem." (Robin Fox -- University Professor of Social Theory at Rutgers University)."Though an atheist, Mustafa Zaveri has sensitivity and compassion for those who are comforted by their religious beliefs. His book is beautifully written, full of ideas and indicates that he is a man of great integrity." (Sir Patrick Bateson -- Emeritus Professor of Ethology at the University of Cambridge and President of the Zoological Society of London)."It's indeed interesting and original, and deserves a readership." (Sir Martin Rees -- Emeritus Professor of Cosmology and Astrophysics at the University of Cambridge and the UK's Astronomer Royal)."Mustafa Zaveri has created a concise and thoughtful synthesis of atheism and evolution with empathy and support for the huge fraction of humanity who embrace faith continuously or occasionally in their lives. Hopefully, this will lead to more civil, tolerant and consilient progress toward solving genuine world problems by reflecting on our human biology and our historical drives." (George Church -- Professor of Genetics at Harvard Medical School and Professor of Health Sciences and Technology at Harvard and MIT)."Mustafa writes extremely well and clearly. His book made me think about the evolutionary roots of religion, given that every culture appears to have mystical beliefs of some kind. His book addresses the issue of "Why Gods Persist" (citing the title of a book by Robert Hinde), and as such it is much more constructive than simply stating that God doesn't exist and thus mocking and alienating those who have religious convictions. The notion that religion might represent a "side effect" of other mental qualities that have undergone positive selection during human evolution is intriguing. Why humans persist in inventing gods is an interesting question and Mustafa's book really does make a contribution to answering this question." (Alan Dixson -- Adjunct Professor, School of Biological Sciences at Victoria University of Wellington). "Zaveri's book is a welcome corrective for the newly fashionable militant atheism. It sensibly suggests that one can be skeptical about the existence of the unprovable without being intolerant of those who find it comfortable to believe in the supernatural. Religion only becomes objectionable when it gets out of the private sphere. It is, alas, unfortunate that in the monotheistic tradition of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, religion gets mixed up with the state." (Pierre L. van den Berghe -- Professor Emeritus of Sociology and Anthropology at the University of Washington)."Mustafa Zaveri has written a concise, cogent and fluent argument against the validity of religious belief. His background, and his critical approach, makes his ideas all the more interesting." (Joe Herbert -- Emeritus Professor of Neuroscience at the University of Cambridge)."I found Mustafa's book full of well-thought-out reactions to big questions; a strong statement well-supported from the scientific literature." (Richard Wrangham -- Ruth Moore Professor of Biological Anthropology at Harvard University)."This is an excellent and very well-written book." (Robin Dunbar -- Emeritus Professor of Evolutionary Psychology at the University of Oxford).

This book addresses the objections most likely to be raised by atheists and other opponents of Christianity. It is rigorous, but readable, and designed for college students. Today's students are subjected to numerous, forceful attacks against Christianity: "miracles can't happen", "Christianity contradicts science", "the Bible is corrupted and unreliable", "people were ignorant and superstitious in olden times", "the Crucifixion was cosmic child abuse", and many, many more. This book takes on and answers those objections, one by one, and does so in just over 130 pages.The treatment is sympathetic towards the tough questions raised by skeptics. It is sharper in answering objections raised by cynics and scoffers.The book presumes Biblical inerrancy and, also, incorporates insights from modern science, philosophy, literature, and archeology. It is a vigorous answer to "New Atheism", New Age mysticism, Islam, and other contemporary belief systems.*******************************The author is a retired investment portfolio manager who helps teach 12th grade Sunday School in Escondido, California. He is educated in economics, science, philosophy, and literature and is the author or co-author of several professional works on various topics.

Why were the early Christians willing to die to protect a single iota of the creed? Why have the Judeans, Romans, and Persians—among others—seen the Christian creed as a threat to the established social order? In The Creed: Professing the Faith Through the Ages, bestselling author Dr. Scott Hahn recovers and conveys the creed’s revolutionary character. Tracing the development of the first formulations of faith in the early Church through later ecumenical councils, The Creed tells the story of how the very profession of our belief in Christ fashions us for heavenly life as we live out our earthly days.
