Overview

Most critiques of atheism focus on refuting head on the individual claims of atheists.
But there's a far simpler way to refute atheists--let them refute themselves.

This unique book faithfully represents what atheists say they believe about the nature of God, evil, and human autonomy and stands back to watch as the natural inconsistencies in that worldview inevitably rise to the surface. Anyone who wants to be able to speak with confidence to an atheist about the fundamental conflicts in their beliefs will find this resource indispensable.

"This is not your typical apologetics book: for Christians seeking a strong foothold in logic, reason, and faith, the authors show how little argument is actually needed to refute atheist claims. A must-have for your library."--Josh D. McDowell, author and speaker

"By allowing the atheists themselves to do the talking, Geisler and McCoy repeatedly catch these skeptics in their own humanistic nets. Recommended especially for those who are interested in the current debates on the subject of the New Atheism."--Gary R. Habermas, Distinguished Research Professor and chair of the Department of Philosophy at Liberty University

"Readers will find the information they need to better comprehend and communicate their faith both to skeptics and to believers who desire to share the reason for the hope within them."-- John Ankerberg, founder and president of the John Ankerberg Show (JAshow.org)

"The Atheist's Fatal Flaw maintains a calm, reasonable objectivity in exposing an explicit inconsistency in atheism. Written in a clear, flowing style, this book is a model for Christian apologetics today."--Winfried Corduan, PhD, professor emeritus of philosophy and religion at Taylor University, author of In the Beginning God

"Atheists like to exalt logic and reason. Geisler and McCoy effectively utilize logic and reason to utterly demolish key atheistic arguments, showing their profound inconsistencies and contradictions, especially as related to divine intervention and the problem of evil. Highly recommended."--Ron Rhodes, author of Answering the Objections of Atheists, Agnostics, and Skeptics

    In their apologetics book "The Atheist's Fatal Flaw",

    In their apologetics book "The Atheist's Fatal Flaw", authors Norman Geisler and Daniel McCoy seek to peel back the back-and-forth arguments that often characterize Christian apologetics against atheist claims. Instead, they endeavor to examine one of the atheist's charges against God: the problem of moral evil and suffering in the world. Those who don't believe in God claim that if God were all-good and all-loving, then He would be able to prevent suffering, and in fact intervene to prevent evil from ever arising in the first place. Despite this, atheists protest that God would be immoral to intervene in the affairs of men. It is this inconsistency that the authors seek to reveal.




    A great deal of the book consists of atheist quotes illustrating and expounding on their positions--at least about two-thirds of the book. It isn't until the last three chapters the authors reach their main point. Personally, I found the amount of atheist quotes contained to be somewhat overwhelming. While they serve to make it clear just atheists believe, I have to wonder if at some point the authors reached a point where they were flogging a dead horse to explain some of the chapters.




    Overall, while a bit technical and lengthy, this is a still good book for Christians searching to learn more about atheism and how it is a logically inconsistent worldview.
