Praise for What’s So Great about God
Atheists beware: this book contains incontrovertible evidence of a benevolent and omniscient Creator. — Eric Metaxas, New York Times bestselling author of Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy
Dinesh D’Souza examines the strengths and weaknesses of the historic approaches to the problem of suffering and offers some provocative suggestions based upon more recent ideas of fine-tuning and the Anthropic Principle. The result is a readable and entertaining book. — Ian Hutchinson, physicist and professor of nuclear science and engineering at MIT
In addition to reviewing the classic explorations of this most vexing problem, Dinesh D’Souza adds two provocative contributions: first, the perspective of a man born in India, a land that views suffering very differently from the West; second, an active engagement with the New Atheists, whom he counts as friends. — Philip Yancey, author of What’s So Amazing about Grace?

As an atheist I bought the book to learn more about the Christian views of theodicy. I was hopeful in the beginning when DeSouza
says he is going to use science and reason to show that God is not responsible for the evil and suffreing in the world. However,
half of the book has so far described Adam and Eve's Fall, Lucifers fall, why some angels joined Lucifer, and why some didn't, why
God created the world the way he did (apparently he was limited in choices). I gave it 2 stars because I liked his writing style, and he
is very engaging. He does not seem to grasp the atheist position the way atheists get the Christian position because most of us come
from a religious background.
