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.

Customer Reviews

"No one needs to prove that God exists.

If you are an agnostic/nonreligious/atheist or anything similar, you will think this book is a waste of lovely trees.

Ray Comfort seems to just get it all wrong.

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.

There has been an organized effort to discredit this book on Amazon by athiest / anti-theist groups. Ray Comfort is often the target of these groups - rating his books low without ever actually reading them to discourage people from purchasing. It's shameful, really. The evidence is all there - you just need to dump your bias first and approach the matter with an open mind. You just need to be brave enough to follow evidence wherever it leads - truth is not subjective.

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.

New Atheists represent the new Know-It-Alls.

If you've never had a conversation with a New Atheist, you're in for a treat, even if you're not a christian.

You see, they believe in Nothing. And that requires a lot of thinking to get just right. Most never crack it in one sitting.

But that's not fair. They believe in morality, right and wrong, that they can have church too, that certain high disciplines are totally on their side, that mockery is the sincerest form of intolerance, that everyone else abuses their family members with special emphasis on their children, that no one of a theistic stance should be allowed in the arena of public discussion, that bias and bigotry is the cancer of religion, that ALL religions are wrong... well not all atheists, just those who believe those things, which is anyone who read anything by Sam Harris and the rest of the ganglidom of four.

Most Atheists are Agnostic anyway so the "movement" is already overpopulated by the confused who aren't sure what fence they're sitting on and how tight or loose they need to strap themselves in for the ride, but they have the latest truth of evolution... which is the new trump card of the rabbit hole digger... but I digress.

Atheism is boring. It's the new religion of the privileged, Uni educated, white male chauvinist who've moved generationally from corporate smearing of accountability to want no accountability at all. Lest they be, oooh, judged...

If you've had enough of New Atheism's pat, trick, conversation killing questions, read this book. It treats the confused atheist/agnostic person with respect while treating the lame concepts they champion with the disdain they engender.
