Sound arguments, most of which refute Christianity on their own, collectively destroy any rational basis on which the Christian religion may be grounded.

John Loftus has now gathered together a group of scholars to provide a detailed critique of theism and Biblical Christianity. Loftus is one of several contributors to distinct chapters in the book. Loftus summarizes his reasons for rejecting Biblical faith and embracing atheism, although his position is arguably defended in greater detail in his earlier work: Why I Became An Atheist. I urge you to purchase a copy of both of his books. Loftus now stands thoroughly refuted, however, by David Reuben Stone (2010), The Loftus Delusion: Why Atheism Fails and Messianic Israelism Prevails. This is the critique Loftus hopes you'll never discover.

too much time spent attacking those who do not hold same beliefs as writers
