    A bove all other books combined, the Bible has been hated, vilified, ridiculed, criticized, restricted, banned, and destroyed, but it has been to no avail. As one rightly said, “We might as well put our shoulder to the burning wheel of the sun, and try to stop it on its flaming course, as attempt to stop the circulation of the Bible” (Sidney Collett, All about the Bible, p. 63).   I found, however, a temporary peace in my arrogance and ignorance. I had always been told how “smart” I was, and I began to thrive off that. I began reading more, and one of the books I read was “The God Delusion” by Richard Dawkins. That book moved me from “fence sitting” about my belief in God to being an out and out atheist.

      In his book Is the Atheist My Neighbor?Rethinking Christian Attitudes toward Atheism, analytic theologian Randal Rauser investigates common prejudices Christians hold about the same time, he does a good job of displaying a capacity for logic and reason, which upends the one-dimensional assumptions that far too many atheists possess about the way they believe religious .   And when The Atlantic ran a piece last year entitled Study theology, even if you don't believe in God, Jerry Coyne, the atheist blogosphere's Victor Meldrew, called it "the world's worst advice.

      My Journey from Atheist to Catholic: 11 Questions for Leah Libresco Sean Salai, S.J. Janu Leah Libresco is a writer and school systems analyst based in Washington, D.C. Hi! This is super late, but Strobel famously wrote his most popular apologetics book, The Case for Christ, pretending that it was written while he was an atheist trying to debunk the arguments of his newly-converted wife. In reality, he wrote the book many years after his conversion. The book is also a sterling example of poor journalism.

The atheist converted, or, The unbeliever's eyes opened: being a full and true account of one Mr. Wright, a gentleman living in the island of Guernsey, who was a professed atheist, and would not suffer his children to go to church: how he was converted by his little daughter of ten years of age.

EDITOR'S NOTE: For the last half of the twentieth century, Antony Flew () was the world's most famous atheist. Long before Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, and Sam Harris began taking swipes at religion, Flew was the preeminent spokesman for unbelief.

However inhe shocked th. 5 Converts to the Quaker faith. 6 Unspecified or other. Converted to Anglicanism or Episcopalianism. Joy Davidman – poet and wife of C. Lewis.

Tamsin Greig – British actress raised as an atheist; converted at Nicky Gumbel – Anglican priest known for the Alpha course; from atheism. Peter Hitchens – journalist who went from. Presently, I am looking for a book (or a slew of books) that might hold up under the rigorous analysis and scrutiny of an atheist (such as myself).

My first instinct was Mere Christianity, but I read a critique (not a scathing one, mind you) of the book, which obviously summarized each portion of the book and provided a few important quotes.

The six books I’m going to cover are Misquoting Jesus (), Jesus, Interrupted (), Forged (), Did Jesus Exist. (), How Jesus Became God (), and Jesus Before The unbelievers eyes opened book Gospels (). All these books were written for a popular audience. They are about The New Testament, which is an easier place to start studying The Bible, than The Old Testament, which is harder to fathom and Author: James Wallace Harris.

This book contains stories that inspire; they make us understand what it is about the Catholic faith that draws people to God. In each of The atheist converted stories there are reasons why the person does not believe or gave up believing in a 'supreme being' but that tends to 'eat at their inner being'; they then realize they are seeking something 'bigger than /5(23).

The more I looked, the more I found Christian Atheists everywhere. Former Christian Atheist Craig Groeschel knows his subject all too well.

After over a decade of successful ministry, he had to make a painful self admission: although he believed /5. Let’s simply look at the Book of Job, because it’s not a book about the evils of man or man’s misunderstanding (Job is the most pious person around).

No, it’s a book about god making a wager with “satan”. Here’s an example of god, not man, actually destroying Job’s entire family and life. Terry Eagleton has a good response to Dawkins, though I don't know the name.

Daniel Dennett Hunts The Snark is a classic from David Bentley Hart. Dr Hart also wrote a book called Atheist Delusions, but it's not squarely on point. Antony Garrard Newton Flew (/ f l uː /; 11 February – 8 April ) was an English ing to the analytic and evidentialist schools of thought, Flew was most notable for his work related to the philosophy of the course of his career he taught at the universities of Oxford, Aberdeen, Keele and Reading, and at York University in mater: SOAS, University of London, St.

Converted roughly a year ago. Raised generically conservative Christian by two ex-Catholics. No church attendance. I eventually took this to incredibly uninformed fundamentalism.

In ninth grade, we read the play "Inherit the Wind" which opened my mind to evolution, which made me reject my fundamentalism and eventually religion as a whole. Famous Atheists Turned Christian. Jzubair, Leave a comment. Theos, in Greek, means God and from it is derived the word ‘theist’, meaning someone who believes in god, and ‘atheist’, standing for someone who does not believe in God.

When I think of the value of knowing God it is this: that we can understand life, we can proceed with clarity, we can avoid pitfalls, we can be led by God, know truth, be given strength/hope/peace, and enjoy the most important relationship, the one who will be faithful to us and constantly love us.

God, who created us, provides this as nothing. In early December of the world renowned atheist author Dr. Antony Flew at age 81 astounded other atheists with his candid admission.

Flew, who is an emeritus professor of philosophy at Britain's Reading University has said that the scientific evidence available to us today is overwhelmingly in favor of the existence of a creator God.

Robert, the Bible is a difficult book to understand when you first read it. I, like you, was an atheist before I read the Bible, and I really do think it took me at least a year (more probably, two or three) to have a more or less okay understanding of what the Bible says and in what context it was written.

And I still probably don’t know enough. Read reviews or order this book: J.P. Moreland & Kai Nielsen. "Does God Exist: The Debate between Theists and Atheists," Prometheus Books, ().Read reviews or order this book: Ravi Zacharias, "The Real Face of Atheism," Baker Books, ().
