A brilliant book. Clear, articulate, and intelligently respectful. Author avoids the emotive and (often) naive rhetoric of Dawkins and Hitchens. A very fresh look at the state of the contemporary debates on g/God's existence with a very useful framework for organizing the incredible diversity of views. Primarily focuses on Christian theological perspectives but engages with non-Christian religions as well. Very potent critique of arguments for the existence of God. The author ultimately concludes that the only viable alternative in today's world is ethical humanism. This book will be a very challenging and confronting read for most Christians. And atheists need to read it to see a brilliant model of engagement.read more
