This review is from: True Reason: Christian Responses to the Challenge of Atheism (Kindle Edition)Atheists often claim that reason is on their side. The recent atheist rally in Washington DC was the "Reason Rally." It is a basic assumption on their part that they use and own reason in contrast to those of religious persuasion. "True Reason" puts the lie to this fundamental assumption of the new atheists. By clearly laying out what reason is, how it is grounded, and how to use it "True Reason" demonstrates by example the missteps of Dawkins, Harris, Loftus, and more.
It is philosophical in tone, yet with existential import. It is well written and accessible to most lay readers. There are some more technical sections, but it is a good primer for those not familiar with the new atheism and the academic Christian responses. It provides a clear and compelling contrast between the methodologies of the current atheist champions and the time tested Christian community. "True Reason" is low on rhetoric and high on concrete examples.
For atheist and Christian alike, it is worth the read. This is an important work by a compilation of Christian thinkers.
