According to author John Lennox, the recent wave of “New Atheists” aren’t new – they’re just louder, more aggressive and far more persistent. Their main goal is to get rid of religion, because they are convinced its dangerous and leads to violence. Many blame this increase in aggressive behavior on the events of 9/11/2001.
Lennox became intrigued with atheism when he was once told that in order to make science his life’s work, he had better give up his ideas about God. After much research and study on the matter, Lennox became even more convinced that there were plenty of holes in this theory. Lennox researched his subject matter well and then added debating leading atheists such as Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens to his long list of achievements.
In this book, Lennox points out the “holes” in the atheist belief system and their list of new ten commandments. Lennox also provides a very solid backbone for the fundamentals of Christianity and addresses the issues atheists have with the resurrection of Christ.
