Customer Reviews

This book is a poorly written jumble of anecdotes and simplistic arguments.

Frederic Nietzsche said god "didn't exist because "god is/was dead" maybe this book proves "god" is dead!!!!
Andrew Stergiou
This book will not convince any atheist that he or she is wrong in not believing in the Christian God.

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.

Format: Paperback
On the back of his book, Mr. Comfort promises to absolutely, scientifically, and without reference to faith or the Bible prove that God exists. He then goes on to extensively quote the Bible, while referring to faith and failing to employ science in his arguments. I guess the saying; "You can't judge a book by its cover" pertains to the back cover as well.

Recently, I had a conversation with a college student who was upset because he was required to take so many "useless" general education courses, such as History and Introducttion to Logic and Formal Reasoning.
At the time, I hadn't yet read this book. If I had, I could have used it and the quasi-arguments Mr. Comfort uses as examples of the type of rhetoric that a general education is designed to protect us from.

Although this book is not a convincing argument in support of atheism, it is clearly an embarrassment to fundamentalism (which is no small task).

This book might be called, ramblings of a self professed minister. More personal opinion (on a wide range of things) and short on content. I have a library of hundreds of books on apologetics and I consider this in the top 3 worst buys. I'd throw it away but I never throw away new books I pay for. He talks about birds, eyes, thumbs, and all sorts of things that exist on earth. What they have to do with atheists is questionable. If specified complexity is what he is driving at, he does it at a third grade level. You have your usual Catholic bashing (what that has to do with apologetics I haven't figured out. You can generally tell a poorly written apologetic when you have only 12 footnotes in the entire book. You get a whole lot of opinion and not a whole lot of fact. Chapter 14 is titled "Bizarre to Insane".That about sums this one up.

Format: Paperback
the saddest part about this book is that the whole thing could have been avoided had ray comfort consulted a dictionary throughout his fallacious rambling.

atheism: One who disbelieves or denies the existence of God or gods.

an atheist doesn't claim knowledge about a deity he knows nothing about; he simply doesn't believe a deity exists. therefore, i have to wonder if mr. comfort believes his own argument as he constantly begs the question and goes around in circles with himself. don't waste your money. if you want an intelligent argument for the christian faith, check out cs lewis' apologetic work. this guy is a poseur.

This book is a poorly written jumble of anecdotes and simplistic arguments. The author regulary makes a claim and then does not put forward any supporting evidence. I gave up reading the book after documenting the numerous errors, blinkered thinking, fallacious arguments etc. He will have to try a LOT harder in order to convince me that his particuar god exists.

This book is a valuable tool for those who wish to find out how NOT to put forward a cogent argument.

Format: Paperback
I'm not going to rag on his beliefs. He's entitled to believe what he wants. i am going to laugh at his terrible writing that is so bad it's good. It's a textbook example of logical fallacies combined with some of the most hilarious strawman arguments ever created. The scary thing for me is that there are people too stupid to see how bad his arguments are. I have had people repeat principles from this book and completely unable to comprehend the holes no matter how simple you break down the flaws. Oddly, at best he makes a compelling argument for agnosticism. by his argument, I have to believe there is a Santa Clause because i have never been in the basement of the taj mahal to confirm him and his elves are not hiding there.
