Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A must read for skeptics. Roy Williams brings a lawyer’s careful attention to evidence and strength of inference to life’s (and death’s) most important questions. He respectfully, but effectively, cross-examines the case against Christianity as propounded by its recent atheist advocates. Like C.S. Lewis and other authors who came to faith late in life, Roy Williams understands the issues that trouble atheists and agnostics and gives thoughtful, convincing responses. He takes on the issues that serve as roadblocks to many modern skeptics, from creation and evolution to the religious right."  —Robert F. Cochran, author, Faith and Law
