We are living in an increasingly secular age where man seeks to build his own life without recourse to his Creator God. Under the guise of "rationalism" Christianity is ridiculed as "out of date" or "irrelevant."

God and the Atheist answers the most fundamental questions about Christianity, such as:

How do we know there is a God?
How do we know there is only one God?
How do we know the Bible is the word of God?

In each chapter, Paul Ferguson evaluates and sets out the evidence to answer the atheist's objections to the existence of God. In a readable and humorous style he precisely builds a remorselessly logical case using his legal and scientific skills to guide the objective reader to discover the truth of who God is. Although the discussion often veers into the academic, Ferguson works hard to make it understandable to those without a scientific background.

    Proslytic nonsense aimed at the ill-informed, sentimental, and uncritical

    This book does not contain any compelling or original arguments for creationism or a theistic world view. What it does contain is a number of dubious claims, some downright false “information”, and several strange (even absurd) stories and conclusions. Ferguson's book is a mixture of propaganda and proselytic emotional manipulation. It's a disappointing read. Ferguson restated the unconvincing arguments from cosmology, consciousness, and morality put forth by the intelligent design camp and various unsophisticated Christian apologists. These are based on a deceptive use of language (such as the term 'design'), misunderstanding of astronomy and biology. He egregiously equates non-theism with ethical relativism. If he is unaware of non-theistic, non-subjective meta ethics and ethical philosophy, he has no business commenting on it. If he is well aware, he is a dishonest propagandist. His primary arguments in favor of Christianity seem to be (1) the bible is extremely popular, and (2) Christianity is the most glorious religion. If objective truth were a matter of mob rule, this might hold some sway. His claims about the bible get absurd. He takes the phrase "seatheth up the hand of every man" (Job 37:7) to make the astounding claim that information about the uniqueness of finger prints is contained in this ancient text. Unfortunately, the term "seal" here means to cease and has nothing to do with identifiable marking. This is only one of several bizarre statements Ferguson would have been well advised to avoid. And the sappy anecdotes are just insulting. (Mean ol' atheist tells recovering alcoholic that god is myth. Alcohol's poor little girl begs him to stop lest daddy starts drinking again. Come on!) Despite the title, this book is the product of a seminary student who happened to have legal training. If you're hoping to find thoughtfully and logically constructed arguments, you won't find them here. If you subscribe to any religion apart from evangelical Christianity, be prepared to be insulted.
