From the Back Cover

What if your best reasons to doubt God prove that He exists?
If you think atheists have reason, evidence, and science on their side, think again. Award-winning author Dr. Frank Turek (I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist) will show you how atheists steal arguments from God when trying to justify their atheism. If that sounds contradictory, it’s because it is! Atheists can’t make their case without appealing to realities only theism can explain.

In an engaging and memorable way, Stealing from God exposes the intellectual CRIMES atheists are committing. Join Turek as he explores how many atheistic arguments, instead of disproving God, show that God actually exists. Turek also provides a powerful four-point defense for the truth of Christianity. Whether you are exploring answers for yourself or want to understand how God transcends the reasoning of those who would deny His existence, this book is for you.

Here is the short version, Frank Turek simply nails it with his new book, "Stealing from God". He uses the typical atheistic objections to Christianity like "Evil" or "Science" to actually make a very strong and compelling case for God. He also writes in a way that makes it very easy to remember and apply what you learned to conversation. So if you find yourself trying to explain and defend your faith frequently to people, this book is for you. AS A FORMER NON BELIEVER, I would highly recommend this book to anyone, but more importantly, if you are honestly trying to search for truth out there, I'll save you the trouble, its found at the cross. So if you want to know how atheists steal from God to argue against him, go ahead and buy this, you'll be glad you did.

Okay, and now the long version. Growing up, I never really asked questions, particularly in school. I never really cared what truth really was, but if there was no God, then there was no God. I really didn't care. My sophomore year in High school our class was on the whole Darwinian evolution thing. There was this girl that was always annoying, bringing up why evolution is fake and all this God stuff. One day she was asking more questions, and I said, "You know, how about you leave your bible at home". I basically had that same attitude about all things religion until my senior year honors earth and space course. We were watching this video on the big bang, and I didn't know at the time who the guy in the video was, but now I know he was Lawrence Krauss. For those of you who don't know him, he is buddy buddy with Richard Dawkins and the Sam Harris crowd.

Stealing From God
Why Atheists Need God to Make Their Case

Frank Turek is a speaker and author who wrote or co-wrote Correct But Not Politically Correct, I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be An Atheist, and Legislating Morality. Turek speaks on college campuses and hosts a weekly radio and television show. He has a DMin in Christian Apologetics from Southern Evangelical Seminary. (I knew it! He came eating and drinking, so he has a DMin!)
Turek’s writing and speaking, as well as his radio and television shows, center on Christian apologetics, and this book is a natural extension of his work.
In Stealing From God, Turek argues that the kinds of ideas atheists appeal to in order to disprove God would not even exist if God did not exist, and therefore atheism is almost certainly false. Turek discusses six of these ideas using the acrostic, “CRIMES:”
• Causality
• Reason
• Intelligence and Intentionality
• Morality
• Evil
• Science
He then covers each point in the first six chapters. In chapter 7 Turek makes a case for mere Christianity by addressing the existence of truth, God, miracles, and the reliability of the New Testament. Finally, chapter 8 defends the idea of eternal punishment.
In his discussion of causality, Turek notes that many of the new atheists appeal to science, especially the principle of causality, for what can be known. However, when it comes to the universe, suddenly there is an exception. In response to arguments such as the Kalam Cosmological Argument, where it is pointed out that anything that begins to exist must have a cause, the universe began to exist, therefore the universe has a cause, atheists appeal to some as-yet undiscovered natural process to explain its origin.

Perhaps you've found it difficult to discuss Christianity with atheists. Maybe some of their arguments have even taken you off guard and made you wonder how to respond to their queries and their critiques. Dr. Frank Turek has recently written a unique book entitled "Stealing From God" which discusses some of the most common arguments most atheists propose, while demonstrating through solid reasoning why these same arguments require God in order to support their own positions. It is a thought provoking book that challenges the conventional thinking of skeptics, while equipping the mind of the believer to see the impossibility of some atheistic claims apart from the knowledge of God.

Dr. Turek is the President of "Cross Examined" and the co-author of "I Don't Have Enough Faith To Be An Atheist". He is not afraid to tackle questions that some might consider tough to argue and has debated at numerous campus and other public venues. It is his depth of scholarship, combined with his simplicity of reasoning that make his arguments worth reading and exploring carefully. He even includes small excerpts of public debates where some of the objections he addresses have been raised by others.

Using the acronym CRIMES, he proceeds in the chapters of the book to examine the areas he considers some of the major places where atheists 'steal from God' to propose their doubts. In areas including, causality, reason, information and intentionality, morality, evil and science, each topic is probed by often quoting the words of the critics themselves to carefully articulate their ideas. But, then, with a surgeon's precision, he cuts to the real root of the trouble and gives the diagnosis that identifies the ailment for each one.
