"Pastors need to consider buying this book for every young person in their church who will start college in the fall." (Paul Schperle, Enrichment, Fall 2011)
"For those prepared to enter the dialog, an opportunity has emerged to engage in conversation. . . Against All Gods is a concise manual to help the reader become better equipped to intelligently defend the faith." (Jim Miller, The Daily Sentinel, May 8, 2010)
"In railing against faith, some atheists become the very thing they speak out against. Against All Gods discusses the modern atheist movement, bringing forth a scholarly debate and how many atheists are hurting the cause arguing with weak or false information, putting religion to the stake a bit too harshly. Against All Gods is a fascinating read, and a top pick for any intrigued with the modern religious debate." (The Midwest Book Review, June 2010)
"What a wonderful little book. Johnson and Reynolds offer a clear, readable and intelligent critique of the new atheism. But they offer something more: joy, hope and love. You get both the reason and the romance of the Christian story. So the new atheism comes across not so much as wrong, but as one-dimensional and childish, a sort of intellectual pornography claiming to be true love. Johnson and Reynolds's complementary combination of intellectual and theological virtues is a fire that both warms and purifies." (Francis J. Beckwith, professor of philosophy and church-state studies, Baylor University)
"Rather than engaging in specific critiques of the new atheism, Phil Johnson and John Mark Reynolds add their voices to the increasing scholarly chorus that decries the real oppressor in these and related discussions: unexamined naturalistic presuppositions that reject alternative ideas without a hearing. Declaring that uncritical attitudes and a lack of appreciation for ancient writings lie behind many recent criticisms of Christianity, the authors call for open discussion of the relevant issues. This volume is a treat to read, featuring a succinct, straightforward and easily digestible text that successfully treats issue after issue." (Gary R. Habermas, Distinguished Research Professor, Liberty University and Theological Seminary)
"This superb work by Phillip E. Johnson and John Mark Reynolds is both an informed response to the new atheism and simultaneously an invitation for ongoing conversation with those who question the truth claims of the Christian faith. I have longed to have a volume like this one to share with my colleagues in the world of higher education. Against All Gods is timely, convincing, readable and accessible; it is a privilege to recommend this little book to a wide audience, with the hope that it will find its way into the hands of university students across the land." (David S. Dockery, president, Union University)
"Johnson and Reynolds are provocateurs in the best sense of that word, and Against All Gods is sure to arouse considerable debate and reflection. This is not another apologetic response to the new atheists. It is a cultural analysis and critique of their claims. It reads like a detective novel and conveys powerful, important ideas to the reader. I couldn't put it down." (J. P. Moreland, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Biola University, and author of The God Question)
Phillip E. Johnson taught law for more than thirty years at the University of California--Berkeley where he is professor emeritus. He is recognized as a leading spokesman for the intelligent design movement, and is the author of many books, including Darwin on Trial, Reason in the Balance and Defeating Darwinism by Opening Minds.

He has taught philosophy at several colleges and universities, and he completed a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in the philosophy of science at Biola University. He regularly appears on radio talk shows, such as the Hugh Hewitt Show, and actively blogs on cultural issues at patheos.com and for the Washington Post's online column On Faith.

While I agree with most of the contents of this book, I was disappointed in the lack of proof-reading that was evident throughout the chapters. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Larry
I appreciated the fair coverage of the new atheism. Yes, it is written by a Christian. But only a Christian can fairly cover the Christian side. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Ozarkians
As far as acting goes I've always thought Steve McQueen was a bit overrated, even so I like watching his movies because he sure was cool. Read morePublished on April 2, 2013 by Paul & Miranda
This is not a dry nor harsh apologetic, shooting down questions many honest people ask with quick quips and unpersuasive brow beating. Read morePublished on February 21, 2013 by Eric Holloway

First off, the book is certainly worth reading. If you are certain your "side" is right and the other is wrong do not read this - regardless of what "side" you are on. Read morePublished on September 26, 2010 by R. Eason

This is the most biased book I've ever read. It is like a very cheap trick on Christian philosophy.
I could not finish reading it.
