About the Author

Ray Comfort, a native New Zealander, began his ministry with a burden for his lost friends. After attending the funeral of a fifth friend who had died from a drug overdose, Ray published an eight page pamphlet called My Friends Are Dying. This pamphlet gained substantial publicity and was later expanded to a paperback book. As a result, Ray received many opportunities to speak to youth about the ultimate answer to the drug problem–Jesus Christ. Shortly after this, Ray began praying for an opportunity to share his faith publicly. He soon learned his hometown, Christchurch, had recently legalized public speaking in the local square. Ray began preaching the gospel outdoors, and this became the daily focus of his ministry. Ray has written more than 35 books and spoken at almost 700 churches. His ministry has included pastoring a church, hosting a Christian radio program, writing a newspaper column called Words of Comfort, and serving as a regular platform speaker at Southern Baptist State Conferences. Ray lives in Bellflower, California, with his wife, Sue, and their three children.

I was going to buy this just for a laugh, but thought better of it and had a bit of a read at the local public library.
Well, I'm glad I didn't give Ray Comfort any money. Nothing but recycled arguments from the last several hundred years of Christian apologetics, but presented with less sophistication than most. What did you expect from a guy who started a school just to give himself a degree?

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.

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.

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.

This guy is barely preaching to the choir. There are a few good paragraphs in it. But as far as arming someone with arguments in favor of God, it isn't useful. His arguments rest on faith....not something that will sway an atheist.

If I had glanced through the book at a store, I wouldn't have purchased it.

I purchased it at Amazon. The transaction was fine even if the product was sub-standard.

I am saddened by the fact that most Christians will never or hardly ever in their life read something about atheism or atheists by an actual atheists. They have to read a strawman version of atheism by someone like Ray Comfort. Atheism isn't the most complex subject in America but like evolution it is misunderstood. Atheism doens't mean an absolute belief there is no God (something Comfort parrots) but can be just nonbelief in a deity. Agnosticism by the way is non-knowledge of a God. I wish more Christians would read something actually written by an atheist in a magazine article, letter to the editor or even a conversation with an atheist neighbor. Aside to Christians, you probably know some atheists and don't realize it. Many atheists, especially in the South, hide their atheism. If your book is about attacking atheist positions that don't actually really exist, your book is more of a work of fiction then anything else.
