Overview

I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist (Foreword by David Limbaugh) by Norman L. Geisler, Frank Turek

To some, the concept of having faith in a higher power or a set of religious beliefs is nonsensical. Indeed, many view religion in general, and Christianity in particular, as unfounded and unreasonable. 

Norman Geisler and Frank Turek argue, however, that Christianity is not only more reasonable than all other belief systems, but is indeed more rational than unbelief itself. With conviction and clear thinking, Geisler and Turek guide readers through some of the traditional, tested arguments for the existence of a creator God. They move into an examination of the source of morality and the reliability of the New Testament accounts concerning Jesus. The final section of the book deals with a detailed investigation of the claims of Christ. This volume will be an interesting read for those skeptical about Christianity, as well as a helpful resource for Christians seeking to articulate a more sophisticated defense of their faith.

I have read the objections to this book. As with most debates, they have valid points, but they miss the point. Christian apologetic thought is about getting you to the point of realizing truth beyond all reasonable doubt. Faith will fill the gap. The thesis of this book is in the title. You can quibble about the details and pick apart minor parts of the puzzle, but in the end, the overwhelming evidence is........OK, read the the book. As I read the book, I came to realize how I determine truth in life is no different than how we need to view Christianity. I work in the criminal justice system and we determine truth the old fashion way. I've seen rapist, domestic violence perpetrators, drunk drivers convicted beyond all reasonable doubt when we applied the use of classical philosophy, forensics and the scientific evidence (mostly circumstantial). In fact, our closing statements in court follow this logic, "In light of X, and X, and X, and X, what would a reasonable person conclude?" Are there holes in our arguments? Yes. Are there gaps that require faith? Yes. Will we ever reach 100% proof for Christ? No. Jesus Christ praised those that have true faith and trust without seeing first hand. I view these types of books as tools for training Christians-young and old in developing their faith--adding depth sort of speak. If we can save a few atheists through debates-great, but in the end, Christians have to unequivocally have faith and trust in the Holy Spirit to do His work.

This book does an excellent job of presenting the evidence for the Christian faith and showing that it is not a blind faith, but a reasonable faith built upon the evidence we see in astronomy, physics, and biology as well as historical evidence for the reliability of the Bible. Any honest seeker of truth will find that this book provides the 'box top' that makes the most sense of life's fundamental questions about who we are, why we exist, and where we are going.

Love the way this book is laid out and the wording is meant for all educations, not just those who are theologians or psychologists. Frank and Norm put life experiences into the book to get the reader more involved.

This book is brilliantly written and proves what great men of science, such as Pascal, Newton, Einstien, Faraday, and Plank knew as common sense - that Faith and logic do go hand-in-hand. It's sad to know that there are so many uneducated and biased teachers, who don't understand science nor history, in the classrooms. Oh well.

I found this to be a very captivating, well written book that didn't require you to have a doctorate in Theology to understand like a couple of other books I've recently purchased and TRIED to read. This book really got me excited-- knowing that my beliefs ARE based on scientific evidence and not just 'blind' faith has done wonders for my excitement and ablility to share the Good News with others.

This book had some great philosophical points concerning absolute morals and truth. There are some scientific proofs that are well explained in this book that most evolutionists like to ignore when pushing their theory. Great logic was used in explaining why the Bible must be true. The authors' style was entertaining and so captivating that I read it twice within a month.

Any thinking rational individual, that looks at the complexity of the sun,moon and stars, the complexity of the human mind or the body, the complexity of anything biological, would have to admit to an intelligent design way beyond our finite ability to understand. The difference between the atheist and rational beings is that they approach anything logical with a predetermined bias, the same as everyone else. It actually takes more faith to believe in millions/billions of years of evolution, and to allow mankind to dictate what you will believe even though you are bombarded with lies and made fun of due to you not accepting the lies that are being fed to all of humanity by evolutionary scientist. To believe in some big explosion, which would be at unimaginable temps, and some 1 cell organism then survives for millions of years without oxygen in the voids of the galaxy, then to have the planets stop in the vacuum of space at just the precise area to create life., and here we are now after emerging from the ooze of some swamp, seems a little far fetched.

While there are a large number of books on apologetics, there are only a handful that are geared toward the non-academic mind. This is one of them. Geisler and Turek have done a wonderful job of presenting the argument for Christianity that is accessible to a general audience without dumbing down the content. Taking the argument step by step and presenting facts that are thoroughly documented and footnoted, this book will have many deserved highlights and underlines once it reaches your hands. It is very useful as a resource to keep handy and very readable at the same time. Looking to understand the Christian Faith? Looking to introduce yourself to philosophy and apologetics? This is the book for you.

This is one of the top five books I have ever read.  It is life changing.  After reading this book I realized the Theory of Evolution was only a popular 19th century myth.  If you consider yourself a serious Christian, this is a must read.  Warning, this book is not an easy read and to some, it may feel like a text book.  If you’re a light weight Christian looking to waste your time reading garbage, go buy one of those books on property Gospel, a Christian romance novel or a fictional prophesy novel like “Left Behind” series which seem to be so popular.   Those types of books are only entrainment.  In the end, none of that stuff is true.  Remember, the truth will set you free… but be careful what you ask for.  You just might end up convicted for Christ. This book is the Magnum Opus of Christian apologetics.  It is nothing less than a modern master piece by Geisler and Turk.   Apologetics has been seriously neglected by the Christian church.  If you want to be able to explain why the Bible is true, this book is what you are looking for.   If you want to evangelize the unsaved for Christ, start here.  This book has it all.   If you’re able to read this whole book and understand the content, you may be faced with a problem like I was.  Now that you know the self-evident truth about Christianity and can defend it, what are you going to do about?

I got this book at a student conference where I heard mr turek talk nd I am so excited to use it in discussions! To those who find fallacies within.. please start telling us specifics because as acts 17 tells us.. we need to keep examining the evidence! This book certainly inspired me to do so!
