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.
