Editorial Reviews

Review

"Thoughtful and insightful, this readable work illuminates for scholars, pastors, and students alike the key issues that must be addressed in order to engage the thinking of Dawkins, Harris, Hitchens, and others. I applaud Albert Mohler for his clarity and conviction in helping us understand that biblical theism is the only true alternative to the New Atheism. I gladly recommend this book!"
David S. Dockery, President, Trinity International University

"Instead of becoming just one more voice in the rising debate between Christians and the New Atheists, Dr. Mohler has chosen to provide us with masterful coverage of the dominant writers on both sides. I know of no other introduction to this crucial debate that is as comprehensive and clear in such brief compass. Mohler tells us what's going on, shows us how much depends on the outcome of this titanic cultural shift, and provides guidance to the resources Christians need to challenge the New Atheism root and branch."
D. A. Carson, Research Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

"The New Atheism needs a clear-headed, straightforward analysis. Atheism Remix does this, and does it well. Al Mohler is clear and concise in his critique, and the readability of this book makes it accessible to a wide audience. This is a fine introduction and overview of the self-proclaimed 'Four Horsemen' of atheism. They are examined and exposed for the vacuous arguments they offer."
Daniel L. Akin, President, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

You can read it fairly quickly ... although I would recommend against that.

I am giving this book a low rating, but not because I disagree with anything substantial in it.
Danni102
Unfortunately, this book does not itself present an argument for biblical theism.

Format: Hardcover
This short book (108 pages) is an informative guide to the challenge of the New Atheists and their challenge to Christian theism. Mohler targets the "four horsemen of the New Atheism" - Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennet, Sam Harris, and Christopher Hitchens.

Chapter one briefly surveys the history of atheism and situates the new atheism within secularism.

Chapter two is the most helpful chapter of the book; it discusses New Atheism's assault on Theism by giving thumbnail sketches of the "four horsemen,"then pointing out eight common features of their assault on theism: (1) The New Atheism is marked by an unprecedented new boldness; (2) There is a clear and specific rejection of the Christian God of the Bible; (3) The New Atheists explicitly reject Jesus Christ; (4) The New Atheism is specifically grounded in scientific argument; (5) The New Atheism is new in its refusal to tolerate moderate and liberal forms of belief; (6) The New Atheism attacks toleration; (7) The New Atheists have begun to question the right of parents to inculcate belief in their own children; and (8) The New Atheists argue that religion itself must be eliminated to preserve human freedom.

Chapters three and four discuss the defense of theism poised against by the New Atheists by various theologians and philosophers, including Alistair McGrath, Alvin Plantiga, Tina Beattie, and John F. Haught. While agreeing with some points of their arguments (especially McGrath and Plantiga), Mohler's primary criticism is that these responses represent various levels of accomodation.

Format: Hardcover
I am giving this book a low rating, but not because I disagree with anything substantial in it. Out of all the books I've read in the New Atheism debate, this is the worst of the Christian replies. Like other reviewers posting here, I was surprised that the book read like an anthology of what the major players in the debate have said, rather than an argument against atheism. Mohler has little, if anything, original to say. In fact, I estimated that around 1/3 of the book is composed block quotation--skim through it and you will find almost every few pages with half-page and sometimes full-page, small font block quotation. This by itself is not a problem, but the other 2/3rds of the book are not much better.

This is Mohler's structure of virtually every section of the book: First, he introduces a figure in the debate with a few long paragraphs of (mostly irrelevant) biographical information. Second, he gives a short summary of their book, position, or relevant aspect of their life (e.g. Dawkins's career). Third, he provides some long block quotation from the relevant author. Finally, he usually adds in a terse comment of his own and then moves on to another author.

When Mohler does give his opinion, he doesn't provide much argument for it (for one, because the book is so short) and often his comments are just complaints. For instance, Mohler repeatedly complains/bemoans that all sides in the debate, Christians and atheists alike, believe in evolution.

One of the only arguments Mohler himself gives comes at the end of the book. Mohler summarizes a couple of liberal or mainline theological responses to the New Atheism movement, replies that deny large portions of Christian theology.

I cannot say for certain what I expected from Dr. Mohler's book. However, I will say I was disappointed to learn that the lecture series was really only a history of atheism and not comments related to the current trend in atheism. If you are a student of apologetics and need a historical background and trends for atheism, than this book may be a decent addition to your studies. Otherwise, your money might be better spent elsewhere.

The sub-title says "A Christian confronts the new Atheists." If that's the case, the publishers left those lectures out of the book.

Format: Hardcover
Albert Mohler's Atheism Remix is divided into four sections. In the first, he examines the history of atheism, from its presence in the Bible ("The fool says in his heart, `There is no God'") to Nietzsche and beyond. He explores how the "conditions of belief" in our world have changed from "impossible not to believe" to "impossible to believe," and how this paves the way for the New Atheists.

The second chapter profiles the "Four Horsemen of the New Atheism," viz., Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, Sam Harris, and Christopher Hitchens, touching on their lives and work. The third chapter examines the responses to these writers by Alister McGrath and Alvin Plantinga, while the final section touches on more liberal responses to the New Atheism. Mohler is dissatisfied to some extent with all of the responses, as even McGrath and Plantinga allow for the possibility of evolution; in the book's last few pages, Mohler asserts that Christians must make a stand for biblical theism, not any accomodationist form of theism that would seek to appease the New Atheists.

The book serves as a decent review of the state of the debate, in that the middle two chapters consist more of long quotations from other authors' work than Mohler's own analysis or argumentation. However, his objection to McGrath's and Plantinga's otherwise cogent arguments is only barely sketched, rather than advanced, and he ultimately fails to make a case that in no form can evolution and God co-exist. In the end, Mohler's work may be a rallying point for conservative evangelicals who share his views, but does little to "confront" the New Atheists--or persuade others of his ideas.
