The Dawkins Letters (engelstalig)

€ 7,50

David Robertson


Includes a new letter to Dawkins & one man's journey from atheism to Christ.


David Robertson wanted there to be an intelligent Christian response to The God Delusion - so he wrote an open letter to Richard Dawkins, posted on his church website. This, somehow found its way onto Dawkins' own website - where it generated the largest response, before or since.


The ferocity, and shallowness of thinking, of some of the responses spurred David to write further letters, which form the basis of this book. They explain a credible basis for faith that counteracts the 'atheist myths' that so much popular discussion is based upon. 


Christians, and non-Christians, need to know where Dawkins is weak - and also how to explain things better! The Dawkins Letters does this, drawing upon David's experience as debater, letter writer, pastor and author.


To engage with the culture you need openness and honesty, so there are points of agreement with Dawkins - but that genuine spirit of enquiry also needs to point out where some of his thinking does not hold together.
