Editorial Reviews

Review

"Overall, I find that the book is well researched, well referenced, and well written. It convincingly uses logic, reason and science to show that many New Atheist theories are founded on a fervent lack of belief which hinders critical analysis or verification of facts and the acceptance of theist evidence both proven and unproven. The citation and editing are also excellently carried out. Thus, I give this book a rating of 4 out of 4 stars."
Online Book Club Official Review, 18 Apr. 2018.

From the Author

Five years ago, a young relation told me he was an atheist and had purchased but not yet read Richard Dawkins' best seller, 'The God Delusion'. As a lifelong Catholic (I am now 80) who had studied such issues when young, I sent him a 20-page paper on some of the reasons for belief in God, including miracles, which led to a brief correspondence. I emailed the paper to an Oxford Professor of Philosophy, Keith Ward, who had written a rebuttal of Dawkins' thesis entitled 'Why There Is Almost Certainly A God', his title a copy of Dawkins' Chapter 4 heading with the word 'A' replacing 'No'. He very kindly replied the next day saying he found my treatment of the topics interesting and suggested the option of self-publishing if I wanted to take matters further.
Having purchased Dawkins' lengthy book, I was astonished by its mocking tone and intellectual superficiality. I decided that, rather in the style of an investigative journalist, I had the ability to overcome my lack of formal scientific or philosophical qualifications and mount a powerful rebuttal of the New Atheist case for which Dawkins was the leading evangelist. This would prove that it was so weak that even an unknown layman could research the issues raised and refute the Godless conclusions.
Overlapping my writing of what turned out to be an 87k word book, and inspired by my daughter's authorship of sci-fi thrillers, I undertook to write a sci-fi romance which I self-published on Kindle last year entitled 'The Finistu Connection'. In a crucial way, this book fed off my research into paranormal phenomena for my God Debate book.
Writing a non-fiction book is of course very different from writing a novel, and one crucial difference is the need to seek rights permissions from a wide variety of sources. Whilst this can prove a very arduous and time-consuming process at times, I have nevertheless often been struck by the helpfulness of those I've approached and encouraged by their good wishes for the success of my venture. My daughter's expertise as writer and beta-reader and self-publisher was also a great support, as of course was my wife's patience with my many periods of overwork and nail-biting frustration with the quirks of computers, both offline and online.
My hope now is that my efforts over the past few years bear fruit in the appreciation of readers for what I have written.
