Editorial Reviews

Review

I find it so encouraging that in these challenging times of 'culture wars,' Christian leaders like my friend Ray Comfort are passionately defending the authority of the Bible from its very first verse. --Ken Ham, president of Answers in Genesis

Ray Comfort has once again laid hold of the greatest power on earth, the power of the Gospel. Here he brings that power to bear, makes that light to shine in the darkest corners of our times, among fools. He proclaims with fidelity and winsomeness, remembering that such were once we, walking in the paths of darkness. --Dr. R.C. Sproul, Jr.

I gave him 2 stars because this book was sometimes amusing.
Pablo Bridges
The arguments he makes in this book are based on Scripture... that is circular reasoning and it is not based on fact.
jezebel
Ray Comfort has no idea how evolution works, or what Atheists actually think or believe.

Format: Hardcover
Unfortunately, Ray Comfort has a large following of fans, and most who are critical of his work decide that the best course of action is to be dismissive. His style of writing can barely be called argumentative. He posits no compelling evidence for his beliefs, makes blind assertions, and clearly does not understand natural forces such as evolution by natural selection and by writing a book which mischaracterizes science, is undermining observation, experimentation, rational thought and critical thinking.

Comfort consistently confuses biology with other scientific disciplines such as cosmology and astronomy, and generally builds up a strawman science, only to knock it down by simply asserting, literally, that his god is real and that atheists are stupid and immoral.

Comfort has a former blog from which he drew the questions for his book, and though the commenters on his blog (including myself) explained repeatedly and thoroughly that evolution does not operate in the fairy-tale evolution he has constructed, that atheists do not believe that "nothing created everything", he continues to write as if he has not read their explanation or is intentionally ignoring them. He writes, for example, about what an amazing coincidence that when "the first man evolved", a woman just happened to amazingly evolve right beside him. This characterization of evolution betrays a fundamental misunderstanding of it. He creates a "fairytale" version of evolution and then goes on to explain what a silly fairytale it is.

Ray actually states in his book that Christians do not need to prove god exists to atheists, because atheists obviously know already that god exists, and are merely denying god so that they can be moral free agents.

Format: Hardcover
Dr. Comfort's book is amazing. It may be the best primer for defeating an atheist I've ever read. I'm particularly fond of how he proves the existence of God by pointing out the perfection of the banana and the fact that the atmosphere is 78.09% nitrogen and 20.95% oxygen--"the exact mixture that his [Adam's] lungs and blood needed to survive."

Take that atheists!

My only disappointment with the proofs provided in this book is that my favorite, Eve, isn't listed among them. Evolution could have made her look like anything at all--like Rush Limbaugh, a big hairy wookie, or a naked mole rat for example. There's no way Adam would have tapped that. Instead, God chose to fashion one of Adam's ribs into something soft, curvy, beautiful, and desirable (Yes, he did make that little sailor in the boat impossible to find, but that's only because you're not supposed to touch it).

God did that. He made women attractive to men, so we'd want to procreate with them rather than watermelons or sheep or something else. And even more importantly, he knew when to stop. No barbeque on these ribs, because God doesn't want us to be always tasting them.

Here is part of a paragraph from the excerpt.

"But it's more miraculous than the air just being there. It was fortunate the air was made up of 78.09 percent nitrogen and 20.95 percent oxygen - the exact mixture that his lungs and blood needed to survive. Without that oxygen Adam would have gasped, and his first breath would have been his last. What a miracle of chance that oxygen existed in just the right percentage to maintain Adam's life, and the life of his wide, whom we will ...."

WOW, the author is completely uneducated on the concepts of evolution. By the way, 70-20 mix of N2 and O2 is not the necessary mixture to support life. Fish swim and breathe in water, which is obviously not that miraculous ratio! Recent deep sea discovery has found living organism based on Sulphur instead of oxygen.

If his claim is that the banana is proof of "God's" existence, then that should tell you everything you need to know about how idiotic this man's claims are.

While I am sure that many of Comfort's fans will enjoy this book, I would not recommend that anybody with any critical thinking skills waste their time with such utter rubbish. Every "point" he tries to make has been previously refuted countless times, and frankly it's a bore to see them rehashed once again with nothing new except the cover.

Somehow all of the 70+ reviews of this book got deleted, including mine. Comfort said this on his site: "Amazon, which had featured dozens of single-star ratings and comments before this article was published, later apparently edited its content to provide only two reviews, one positive and one negative." How dishonest can you be? I wrote this honest review in good faith after reading his book, and it should not be deleted simply because it is negative. Here it is again:
