Overview

Is there no heaven or hell, no God, no spiritual realm-just science?

That's the message a new generation of dynamic atheist thinkers are shouting from the rooftops, over the airwaves, in the bestseller lists and across cyberspace. They've created a flourishing worldwide, antireligious movement proclaiming that belief in God is not only false but dangerous.

Here is a book that answers this challenge with some of the finest thinkers in cosmology, astrophysics, biology, theology and philosophy.

Including an interview by Gary Habermas with noted convert to theism Antony Flew, and a direct critical response to Richard Dawkins's The God Delusion by Alvin Plantinga, God Is Great, God Is Good offers convincing and compelling reassurance that though the world has changed, God remains both great and good.

Editorial Reviews

The 2010 Christianity Today Book Awards
"Craig and Meister bring together cutting-edge essays that attest powerfully to the massive and growing evidence in favor of theism in general and Christianity in particular. Each essay responds to the charges made by the New Atheists, but this is by no means a polemical book. The writeres set a high bar for reasonable, responsible discourse, and they live up to it."
Craig Hazen
"There is no way, apart from deep and abiding spiritual blindness, that an atheist could read this book and walk away thinking belief in God is nonsensical, irrational, or unscientific."
Glenn B. Siniscalchi
"This book has plenty of food for thought for believing Christians (and unbelievers!) who need a reason to believe in Jesus Christ and the Church."
Lucy Huskinson
"The essays in this book are all clearly argued, and will reassure the already faithful that they are neither daft nor deluded."
Betty Waller
It is reassuring that so gifted a pair of astute minds has taken time to respond to such works as Richard Dawkin's The God Delusion and Christopher Hitchen's God is not Great.
Richard O. Wright
"Craig and Meister have assembled careful, thoughtful, credible, well-communicated views, which can be used to support, expand and individualize curriculum. These essays challenge and argue the New Atheists."
