Here’s a new, short book that some of you might be interested in: Against All Gods: What’s Right and Wrong About the New Atheism, by Phillip E. Johnson and John Mark Reynolds (IVP, 2010).

Here’s the table of contents:

1 Introducing the “New Atheists”
2 Harvard’s Aborted Requirement in Reason and Faith
3 Earth’s Distinction
4 The Darwinian Worldview
5 The God Hypothesis in Physics
6 On Reading Old Books: Asking the Right Questions About the Bible
7 Education: Wonder Instead of Doubt
8 Longing for Beauty: Christianity And Culture

And here are a couple of blurbs:

“Johnson and Reynolds are provocateurs in the best sense of that word, and Against All Gods is sure to arouse considerable debate and reflection. This is not another apologetic response to the new atheists. It is a cultural analysis and critique of their claims. It reads like a detective novel and conveys powerful, important ideas to the reader. I couldn’t put it down.”
--J. P. Moreland, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Biola University, and author of The God Question

“This superb work by Phillip E. Johnson and John Mark Reynolds is both an informed response to the new atheism and simultaneously an invitation for ongoing conversation with those who question the truth claims of the Christian faith. I have longed to have a volume like this one to share with my colleagues in the world of higher education. Against All Gods is timely, convincing, readable and accessible; it is a privilege to recommend this little book to a wide audience, with the hope that it will find its way into the hands of university students across the land.”
--David S. Dockery, president, Union University
