"There is no way, apart from deep and abiding spiritual blindness, that an atheist could read this book and walk away thinking belief in God is nonsensical, irrational, or unscientific." (Craig Hazen, Outreach, March-April 2011)
"This book has plenty of food for thought for believing Christians (and unbelievers!) who need a reason to believe in Jesus Christ and the Church." (Glenn B. Siniscalchi, American Theological Inquiry, January 2010)
"The essays in this book are all clearly argued, and will reassure the already faithful that they are neither daft nor deluded." (Lucy Huskinson, Church Times, April 7, 2010)
It is reassuring that so gifted a pair of astute minds has taken time to respond to such works as Richard Dawkin's The God Delusion and Christopher Hitchen's God is not Great. (Betty Waller, The Lamplighter)
"Craig and Meister bring together cutting-edge essays that attest powerfully to the massive and growing evidence in favor of theism in general and Christianity in particular. Each essay responds to the charges made by the New Atheists, but this is by no means a polemical book. The writeres set a high bar for reasonable, responsible discourse, and they live up to it." (The 2010 Christianity Today Book Awards, Apologetics/Evangelism Category Winner, February 2010)
"Craig and Meister have assembled careful, thoughtful, credible, well-communicated views, which can be used to support, expand and individualize curriculum. These essays challenge and argue the New Atheists." (Richard O. Wright, Youth Worker Journal, January/February 2010)
