This book was first published in fourteen years ago, but its content is timeless. It is John Blanchardmajor work, and was voted 'Best Christian Book' in the 2001 UK Christian Book Awards, and immediately became a best-seller, described as 'a brilliant defense of belief in God'. In the introduction, Sinclair Ferguson says that Does God Believe in Atheists may well be unique and certainly is remarkable. It is very probable that you have never read anything quite like it before. Does God Believe in Atheists? belongs to no ordinary book category because it seems to belong to so many different categories. One does not need to be a prophet to predict that it will be frequently consulted and its material widely used. Here is a book on religion and theology. It is bulging with facts and fascinating information. The notes alone, which display John Blanchard's wide ts and reading, run into somewhere over 2,300. Yet nobody need be afraid of these pages for that reason. For John Blanchard takes great care not only to make everything clear, but also to make it enjoyable, by sharing with us all kinds of ting information about the great thinkers and scholars in world history. Big ideas, complex thoughts, recondite philosophies and scientific theories are all explained in a way that even a modestly educated reader can understand. When all this comes packaged with a sense of humour and a love for golf (the latter without the former would surely be a grave philosophical aberration), you know that you have a book worth reading! Most of all, however, this is a book that will challenge you to think and help you to do so. This new edition has been revised and now includes the ESV as the main source of Scripture quotations.
