This book lays it on the line and in my opinion will put Christian and Jewish apologists out of business. It is simply that good. Read it and find out for yourself. I'm sure you won't be disappointed in the sophistication of scholarship that went into writing and presenting this little gem of a book. Even the "great" Christian apologist J.P.

This book is not just a rehash of old arguments but an excellent addition to any clear thinker's library, particulalry those whose children's intellectual development are dear to them. It should stand up there with the best of the books of enlightenment, including The Origin of Species and Ideas; From Fire to Freud.

Believers of yesteryear might have been forgiven because "they knew not what they did", but no modern-day minister, who during their studies must surely be exposed by the critical arguments from Dr Long and others, can still pretend to spread "the truth". In short, should preachers be regarded as leaders of the intellectually oppressed or deceitful politicians of faith?
The (albeit brief) discussions on the social indoctrination of our children and the subjectivity of apologetic replies are very welcome.Read more ›
