Editorial Reviews

Review

"I already know ten people to whom I will give this book. It's truly a Godsend."
David Limbaugh, Author, Absolute Power and Persecution, from the Foreword

"I wish [this book] had been available when I was an atheist-it would have saved a lot of time in my spiritual journey toward God!"
Lee Strobel, Author, The Case for Christ and The Case for Faith

"If you're still a skeptic after reading I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist, then I suspect you're living in denial!"
Josh McDowell, author and speaker

"Atheism requires gobs of blind faith while the path of logic and reason leads straight to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Geisler and Turek convincingly show why."
Phillip E. Johnson, Author, Darwin on Trial and Reason in the Balance

"I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist will equip, exhort, and encourage you'to give the reason for the hope that you have . . . with gentleness and respect.'"
Hank Hanegraaff, President, The Christian Research Institute, Host, Bible Answer Man

"This book should disturb anyone claiming to be an atheist . . . perhaps enough to persuade them to begin a search for the God who has been there all along."
Cal Thomas, Syndicated Columnist, Host, After Hours, Fox News Channel

"Geisler and Turek present the crucial information needed to avoid being swept away by the onslaughts of secular ideologies that cast science, philosophy, and biblical studies as enemies of the Christian faith."
William A. Dembski, Senior Fellow, Center for Science and Culture, Discovery Institute; author, Being as Communion

Customer Reviews

I think it is very well written - easy to read - informative.
J. Smith
I was amazed at the way Mr. Geisler used logic, reasoning and even science to show how much faith a person requires to be an un-believer.
Daniel Ruiz
I highly recommend this book for Christians looking to strengthen their faith, truth seekers, and skeptics alike.

THE BOOK:

I am an agnostic who is looking for something to believe in. I have searched for years now, and generally am met with lukewarm explanations and radical fundamentalism from both camps. I am not self-righteous or pig-headed enough to categorically dismiss atheist or religious arguments simply because their tone bothered me, but it does get tiresome to be on the receiving end of what is usually more bitterness and dogmatic posturing than any kind of intelligent thought or reason.

Again, I'm talking about atheists as well as religious zealots.

Which is why I enjoyed this book so much.

This is a concise, well-crafted, thoughtful and thought-provoking piece of work. There is real insight to be gleaned from the pages, and although the sum total isn't what any open-minded person would call 100% convincing, it definitely gets much closer than anything else I've discovered.

There is much talk about this book setting up straw men to be knocked down, and although the book does do that on a few occasions, it is by no means what the ultimate premise is based on. In fact, although there were some sketchy arguments and hastily covered bases, and although there were explanations missing and topics omitted, I still felt, on the whole, that it was one of the more successful books I've read from either camp.

The tone (while every once in a while devolving into brief moments of snideness and cockiness) is generally quite intelligent and emotionally removed. There is little here that is bullying or smug, and for that I was grateful. It leant the text, with its vast array of debates and discussions, a snappy and no-nonsense delivery that helped elucidate the more hazily understood, philosophical explanations.

Norm and Frank are just like me and you in that doubts and disbelief come and go and stir around in our minds, because of the father of lies, Satan. Christ has won the battle against Satan, and we just have to look at the facts of what is presented and continue to be about the mission of discipleship. This book fills the quiver by solidifying the truth of the material and effectively presenting the case for Christ; in tandem, mind you. This is well worth the read,, especially in times as these.

A comprehensive overview of apologetics. The authors make a compelling case not only for the truth of theism but they demonstrate the irrationality of atheism. Once they make the case for monotheism it's just a matter of reviewing the evidence before they come to the conclusion that Christianity is both reasonable and most importantly, true!
This would be a great place to start for people who are interested in learning about apologetics. Seekers and skeptics should read as well. The authors do a superb job laying out the evidence for the faith beginning with the cosmological argument for the existence of God. From here they cover the teleological and moral arguments. Their argument logically progresses in an orderly fashion until they review the evidence for the biblical texts, the resurrection, and Christ's claims especially His claim to be both fully God and fully man.
I hope this book is read by both skeptics and believers. The former group will become skeptical of their skepticism and believers will be encouraged and equipped to defend the faith.
After reading this book you will realize that it takes a lot more faith to be an atheist than to embrace the Christian faith and it's living Lord.

I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist is a great book that makes the case for Christianity from a logical stand point. All Christians should read this book and then pass it on to a non-Christian. Make sure you read it first so you can answer any questions that come up when you pass it on. If you want to have additional arguments for Christianity, check out the Big Book of Christian Apologetics, also by Geisler.

"I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist" convincingly shows why atheism and other non-Christian views require a lot more faith than Christianity. Geisler and Turek build their case from the question of truth all the way to truth of the Bible. Along the way, in a readable and often entertaining way, they debunk relativism, agnosticism, atheism, Darwinism and New Testament liberalism. Their explanations of how the big bang, the design found in both the Universe and living organisms (like humans!), and morality point to God are worth the price of the book.

I especially like the clarity they bring to the creation-evolution debate. Their point about how science is built on philosophy helps clear away much of the dust kicked into that often raucous debate. "It's not about the Bible vs. science or religion vs. science" they write, "but about good science vs. bad science." Geisler and Turek show that it's actually the Darwinists who are practicing the bad science. Darwinists rule out intelligent causes before they even look at the evidence. In doing so, they ignore observation-- the very foundation of science-- much as the opponents of Galileo once did. That's bad science built on bad philosophy.

I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist has four great chapters that systematically show why the New Testament documents are telling the truth. The authors show why we can be assured that the documents were written within a few decades of the evens which they report and contain historically-confirmed eyewitness details. They also cite non-Christian writers, archaeology, and list over 30 characters found in the New Testament that have been confirmed by secular sources.
