On 3/3 Melissa R wrote: Why God Won't Go Away took me a long time to read. While the content is very interesting, I set it aside because it's so deep that each section took me a little while to absorb. (That plus the fact that my house is often noisy and I couldn't read this with all the background noise.) This is definitely ... Well Worth the Time

On 11/6 Stuart Brogden wrote: Where McGrath departs from his call as a gospel minister is in the last chapter. He heralds Mother Teresa and declares his desire to emulate her. This woman is held up by many as a model Christian, but she made it clear many times that she did not even try to convert anyone to Christ; she thought God ... Missing the most important chapter

On 9/6 Anela Mahoe wrote: Why God Won’t Go Away by Alister McGrath (Is the New Atheism Running On Empty?) is a great book to start for beginning apologetics and agnostics.

Good starting point for defending faith

I enjoyed the book in that I learned ... Interesting

On 2/12 Matthew Hamilton wrote: Allister McGrath attempts to tackle what has been one of the most prominent trends of the first decade of the 21st century: Neo-atheism. The entire first section of the book is dedicated to explaining what neo-atheism is, and a number of neo-atheist authors are discussed, including Sam Harris, Daniel ...

I've been reading so much for school I haven't really had a chance to read for recreation or to write reviews.This book was quite an interesting read, but a little disheartening to me at the same time. To read about people who claim that everything can be rationally ... Review - Why God Won't Go Away by Allister McGrath

On 1/5 John Elliott wrote: The premise of the book is to unmask the “new atheism” movement and the reasons for its deep seated hostility toward people of faith. The author frames his explanation of the movement by first presenting the history of the movement and highlighting its major contributors. The major contributors ... Job Half Done
