Customer Reviews

His arguments rest on faith....not something that will sway an atheist.
Richard May
Most atheists hold the position that the evidence for the existence of god(s) are not convincing enough to warrant belief.
The_Young_Contrarian
The scary thing for me is that there are people too stupid to see how bad his arguments are.

Format: Paperback
Although well written, like many books on apologetics Mr. Comfort's book is aimed squarely at strengthening the faith of existing Christians. Many of Mr. Comfort's arguments against atheism are also arguments against theism in general (and Christianity in particular).

For example, he asserts that ""There is no God," is... an absolute statement... For the statement to be true, I must know for certain that there is no God in the entire universe. No human being has all knowledge. Therefore, none of us is able to truthfully make this assertion."

However, "There is a God" is also an absolute statement. For the statement to be true, Mr. Comfort must know for certain that God is not a figment of his imagination or a cruel trick played by aliens. No human being has all knowledge. Therefore, none of us is able to truthfully make this assertion.

In Ray Comfort's world then, everybody is agnostic. That may be true in the strictest sense, but it's simply not very helpful.

Mr. Comfort elaborates: "[i]f you insist upon disbelief in God, what you must say is, "Having the limited knowledge I have at present, I believe that there is no God." "

Similarly, to be intellectually honest, Mr. Comfort should say "having the limited knowledge I have at present, I believe that there is a God."

Again, that mouthful is not too helpful. Are the shorthand versions really that bad?

Mr. Comfort's book is full of similar equivocations, false dilemmas and circular logic. As such, it's unlikely to convince its claimed audience, while the encouragement it gives to true believers may be negated if these errors are pointed out to them while witnessing.

Ray Comfort hasn't learned anything new in the past four decades. At least, not if his recent books are any indication.

Modern life is indeed complex, but it need not always be that way. Recent experiments have shown that abiogenesis (life from non-living materials) is possible. And despite what you may believe or have been innocently indoctrinated to believe in Sunday school and/or what passes as biology "teachers" in recent years, given the Bush administration's tax cuts (we have rational, science-minded people to thank for keeping biased, right-wing, totalitarian creationist literature out of states outside Texas).

Now on to Ray's "explanations" as to why an all-loving, all-powerful and all-knowing god would allow any suffering (let alone the surfeit of misery experienced every day by sentient beings).

The Problem of Evil is an insurmountable one for Christians (and all other theists who believe in a perfectly loving, all-powerful and all-knowing god). There have been intense and motivated efforts over the past two millennia to defend such a position rationally, and they have all failed. Miserably. Utterly. And in many cases, dishonestly.

Some approached involve invoking an unknown "greater good" defense (which throws god's omnipotence under the bus. An omnipotent deity could simply actualise a desired goal without needing to use suffering as a "middle man"). Attempts to shift the problem by asserting that human happiness is not the goal of life (but knowing god is) removes the omnibenevolence and omnipotence of god (if you love someone, you don't want them to suffer. It really is that simple).

Here, Comfort takes the old canard of free will.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Rebecca of Amazon HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on November 25, 2014
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has been on the market for over twenty years and yet I only heard about it recently. I'd expect it would have thousands of reviews. If there is one book atheists should read it should be this one. I found the arguments to be logical and convincing.

I like that the author explains that even atheists have faith, just in different things like evolution. Ray Comfort has a sense of wonder about creation and briefly mentions irreducible complexity.

Some of this book mentions sad realities, other parts are lol funny and a lot of the information in this book will make you think more deeply about life and eternity.

What you have to ask yourself is why are atheists so angry about someone telling them how to escape eternal damnation? I'm happy someone told me. So while you may find yourself laughing in places while you read you may also find yourself startled by truth.

Since I talk to atheists at the amazon forums the title of this book amused me. I believe God has a sense of humor. Give this book to all your atheist friends. I'm sending my copy out in the mail immediately.

This is not a bashing of people who proclaim to be Atheists. In fact, although Mr.Comfort does not mince words or peek around the bush, he does treat those who do not believe with a loving gentleness...not trying to force anything down anyone's throat, but presenting the existence of God in a way that is rich in descriptions (Bananas, apples, oranges, the brain and eyes, just for examples) and understandable. His ability to ask questions that inspire (and often require) thinking beyond the norm or even the expected is truly a gift. Thinking people ask questions and then search for answers...discernment is lacking these days and this book helps one to want more of it. Another good book for a group study that includes lots of time for thinking and discussion.
