Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Alex McFarland is a young evangelical who understands the mind of the modern atheist. He has not only answered their questions, but he has proposed to them biblical questions that—if they would honestly answer—would bring them face to face with God. May God use this book to prove to many that God does exist.
- Elmer L. Towns, Co-founder, Liberty University

As an apologist/evangelist, Alex McFarland makes a sincere effort to engage in dialogue with atheists and skeptics alike. Out of these efforts had come his latest resource, 10 Answers for Atheists. In this book, Alex provides not only theoretical ideas but also real answers to real questions. If you are serious about sharing Christianity with atheists, you will find this book to be well researched and respectfully presented.
- Josh D. McDowell, Author and Speaker

The aftermath of the many new voices in atheism has led to the need for believers to have solid answers ready for sharing the reason for the hope they have within them. Alex provides biblical responses and seasoned solutions based on his many years of sharing his faith with people of diverse backgrounds around the world. You’ll be encouraged and equipped for better conversations with those who struggle with whether God is there and be able to offer hope and help that truly changes lives.
- Dr. John Ankerberg, Founder and President, The John Ankerberg Show (www.jashow.org)

There always seems to be an interest in treatments of the pithiest spiritual questions and brief responses, especially ones that nicely encapsulate some of the most difficult issues of our day. Alex McFarland has a gift for accomplishing these sorts of tasks. Seldom will one find so many tough challenges to religious faith followed by even better explanations, all under one cover. I recommend this handbook of responses to atheism as a quick-read that is a real page-turner.
- Gary R. Habermas, Ph.D., Distinguished Research Professor, Liberty University and Theological Seminary
 
Alex McFarland is one of today’s most sought-after speakers on Christian apologetics. After speaking on countless radio programs and on university campuses, and after having engaged in several public debates with atheists, he is well qualified to write on the subject matter of this book. A lot of apologetics books have been written, but few are as accessible to the layperson as those written by Alex McFarland.
- Michael R. Licona, Ph.D., Associate Professor in Theology, Houston Baptist University

    Haters abound

    The earlier reviewer didn't read the book. This book doesn't merely use the Bible to prove its position.

    Wow

    How could he even try and wright a book that is so....... i dont even know. "How to have compation for nonbelievers" non believers should be having compatikn for believers and there lack of an opean mind to anything. Go to church and leave your brain at the door for proper washing, that is what religion preatches, not the truth.

    Author has never studied logical reasoning

    Using the Bible to try and prove God exists is a circular argument that fails the most basic tenents of logic. This ridiculous book is a pathetic attempt to answer the real questions of atheists. And it fails miserably.
