Editorial Reviews

endorsement - Antony Flew
It has been a great pleasure to me as a long-retired Professor of Philosophy to have been set the task of reading Answering the New Atheism: Dismantling Dawkins' Case Against God by Dr. Scott Hahn and Dr. Benjamin Wiker. For this 'task' has been for me not a task but a sustained delight. Rarely, if ever, in my many years as a Professor of Philosphy did I ever have the opportunity to read such a compelling argument.
endorsement - David Klinghoffer
In a better world than ours there would have been no need for Answering the New Atheism. But under the circumstances, I'm grateful to Scott Hahn and Benjamin Wiker for their essential service in cooly, rationally taking apart Richard Dawkins' inflamed rhetoric and exposing the absurdities, and the dangers, at its heart. Their final chapter is a particularly chilling, important reminder of what Dawkins' secular faith would lead to if it were more widely embraced.
endorsement - Dinesh D'Souza
Scott Hahn and Benjamin Wiker answer the arguments posed by the New Atheism effectively and decisively. They show, again and again, that atheists like Richard Dawkins are putting forth shoddy arguments, and once those arguments are dismantled by cool reason, there is very little left.

    Pleased But Left Wanting...

    After reading several of the atheist tomes including the one by Dawkins - The God Delusion and Hitchens - God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything. I then purchased several books offering rebuttals. One I liked was William's Greater Than You Think: A Theologian Answers the Atheists About God <BR/><BR/>This book did present a few compelling arguments but I felt that they fell short in too many places. Maybe they were trying to keep down the wordcount, however, I believe the intellect was there but not really used at all times. One thing that distracts from the books by both Dawkins and Hitchens is their obvious hatred of God even though they claim that He does not exist. Same thing with this book. The authors hatred of Dawkins I believe should have been mellowed out with less direct attacks and comments and more on the general stupidity of atheists. <BR/><BR/>The flow of the book and the footnotes were excellent. In addition, I support anyone willing to invest the time and effort to battle this growing crisis of faith. I feel the Dawkins of the world are winning. I certainly hope I am wrong. <BR/><BR/>I hope you find this review helpful. <BR/><BR/>Michael L. Gooch - Author of Wingtips with Spurs

    Very well done, it's great to see an opinion taken apart by real experts.  I agree with one of the reviewers, there should be a second part to this book.
