Editorial Reviews

Review

""If it looks and sounds like a fairy tale, it's a fairy tale." So says David Madison, a biblically trained scholar, in an unequaled, educational, and entertaining counter-apologetics book that exposes ten of the toughest problems for the Christian faith as unworthy of thinking adults. Madison expertly presents a cumulative case against Christianity, which is the best way to compel childlike believers to abandon their make-believe fantasies. While it's written for pastors and their fleeced flock in the pew stalls, Christian philosophers should definitely pay heed since most of them are biblically illiterate, mindlessly defending the wacky doctrines derived from unevidenced ancient pre-scientific fairy tales. "
--John W. Loftus, author of Unapologetic: Why Philosophy of Religion Must End.

"Dr. David Madison pulls no punches in this wide-ranging critique that explains why Christianity fails to satisfy human reason, evidence, or even basic human social needs. From the problem of evil to the claim that the Bible is the word of God, Dr. Madison exposes the problems of Christian belief as few others can. As a former believer, he understands why Christians believe what they do. As a formally trained biblical scholar, he can detect all the ways that bad biblical scholarship is being used to prop up Christian belief. Given its highly accessible language, Ten Tough Problems in Christian Thought and Belief is ideal for those who wish to start exploring why Jesus is not the answer, and why Christianity has never given good answers to life's most important questions."
--Hector Avalos, author of The Bad Jesus: The Ethics of New Testament Ethics and The End of Biblical Studies.

"David Madison's book, written from the perspective of a former Christian minister and scholar, is engaging, personal and erudite. I wish I had known about him when I was conducting interviews for the Dennett-LaScola study of non-believing clergy. He would have provided
insights from a liberal Christian point of view that are hard to come by."
--Linda LaScola, co-author with Daniel C. Dennett of Caught in the Pulpit: Leaving Belief Behind and co-founder of The Clergy Project.

"I admire David Madison for researching and producing this spectacular work, clearly and forthrightly exposing the fatal flaws of Christian belief. Madison's esteemed background as a Christian scholar and former believer make his arguments both entertaining and irrefutable to any thinking person. I've personally been involved for forty years in the debate between Christianity and atheism, but I learned something new and gained a richer perspective on virtually every page of this unique and extraordinary volume, which reads as easily and pleasurably as a spy novel. Parts of this book are funny as hell! David Madison claims to address Ten Tough Problems in Christian Thought and Belief. But, spoiler alert, Madison's wealth of knowledge, as revealed so admirably in these pages, rebuts far more than a mere ten problems with the Christian religion. My highest and most enthusiastic recommendation."
--David Mills, author of Atheist Universe.

"Dr. David Madison's Ten Tough Problems is not just a good book - it's an in-depth analysis of the Christian faith and all that it entails. Madison, a minister-turned atheist, shows exactly why Christianity isn't a reasonable or evidence-based position and how bad biblical scholarship has propelled the religion to its current popularity. Exhaustive but not overwhelming, deep but also funny, I recommend this book to anyone."
--David G. McAfee, author, The Book of Gods, and Mom, Dad, I'm an Atheist, and others.
