Product Description


Don't buy a single copy of this book! Buy several, then give away copies to friends or contacts who are wrestling with the really big questions about the meaning and purpose of life ... Andrew Wilson manages to dig deeply while using a light touch. He has produced a real page-turner that will surely be a huge help to many who read it. --John Blanchard, author and apologist

Intelligent, witty and disarming, Andrew has delivered a fascinating and engaging account of how we might find answers to the biggest questions of life. Who are we? Where are we going? And how can I get in on the good life? This book is easy to read and hard to put down. It is powerful, compelling stuff. --David Stroud, Newfrontiers UK

The best book on apologetics that has come from these shores for a decade. It will bring a smile to your face and present numerous eureka moments. And Andrew does it in this mad conversational style --Christianity Magazine

About the Author

Andrew Wilson speaks at conferences and teaches internationally. His other books are: 'Deluded by Dawkins?', 'Incomparable' and 'GodStories'. He lives in Eastbourne with his wife Rachel and their two young children, Zeke and Anna.

Format: Paperback
1 Peter 3:15 states that Christians should be willing to give an account/defense for what they believe in, yet with gentleness/humility.

This means that sensitive and challenging Apologetics (written by Christians) should be available in abundance. However, it simply isn't.

This book is a real breath of fresh air.

Andrew Wilson takes arguments (albeit unoriginal and used by other prominent Apologists such as John Lennox, William Lane Craig, etc) and articulates them with a sort of simplicity that makes these challenges accessible to the common man.

He mixes these thorough and challenging arguments with his own thoughts and stories and writes with a gentleness and humility that produces one of the only publications of its sort that a Christian can feel comfortable handing to an inquisitve friend.

A must read for any Atheist that is unfamiliar with the prominent arguments of the intellectual Theist, or indeed with the idea that such a person exists who writes in a tone that doesn't make you want to put your fist through a wall.

A wonderful book, simply superb.

I write a blog called Geoff's Shorts. Over the last year or so I've tried to read at least one book I disagree with a month, generally on Christianity. It's an odd hobby. Sometimes it's laborious work. On several occasions I've had fun combing texts for errors, contradictions and absurdities. Some I've broadly liked, but separating where I agree with the author and where we differ has always seemed a tough review to write. I'd like to tell you why Jesus and the Eyewitnesses and Atheist Delusions are both worth reading despite my disagreements in areas, but It's easier to point at ID authors who think all languages originated at the Tower of Babel.

A few weeks ago, after a year of off-and-on blogging, I was asked if I'd read the recently released "If God Then What?" and discuss with the author on a radio show called Unbelievable?. Despite my accent I do love the sound of my own voice so I leapt at the opportunity. I expected a fun week of debunking, drawing up lists of flawed arguments, rehashing old debates and preparing to retaliate for slights against my fellow atheists. I'd heard the author, Andrew Wilson, on radio shows before and he seemed the sort who'd enjoy a vigorous debate.

Without wishing to give away too much, my opening words on the book were 'disappointingly good'. On a show that leans towards the debate format I found myself in the awkward position of thinking Wilson had done a useful job. I went so far to say that those considering a book on apologetics should seek his out.

It's natural and important for us to want to talk about what ideas we hold dear, and I understand the drive to evangelise. Some Christians can talk about their faith quite well. Some are great at winning arguments.

A brilliant book which asks and provokes questions for people of all spheres of life (and their respective world-views) without detracting from any persons respective worldview or religious standpoint. Therefore this is a book for the theist and atheist alike. I thought it was well written, engaging, and had profundity without being overly 'academic' or 'technical' in its delivery. I particularly enjoyed the first chapter about fundamentalism - and how fundamentalism is fundamentally flawed as a perspective from not just a Christian vantage point but also from that of other religions too, not to mention atheists (who are often just as fundamental in their beliefs as any other belief system). That was helpful and helps to open your mind as you engage with the question as to why you believe what you believe.
The book is in two sections - the first deals with epistemological questions (which includes science and philosophy) regarding the material world we live in - as well as asking how we can define what is real and what is not (positivism and phenomenalism), and how those two methodologies do not answer 'most' of the questions that people have. So Wilson uses that to further his case. The second part of the book deals with the problem of evil, and Wilson made a very strong case that we all often point the finger to the other bad person or persons. But he then points to the good and bad in every person, which then leads onto the biblical evidence for Christ's intervention in the world.
This book is one of the best apologetic books there is to give to non-believers - and it will also be of benefit to believers and will help them to be more understanding in their views especially if they communicate to people of an opposite persuasion. Well worth a read!

I didn't really need convincing but I wanted something to give to a youngster considering the big questions of life; what's it all about? Is there a God? If there is, or even could be a God then what difference does that make to my world view? This is one of the best and most accessible books to give to someone who is asking questions, remains open minded and genuinely wants a succinct summary of the arguments for the existence of God and then the 'so what's' that follow. Andrew writes in a contemporary style with wit, charm and humility. Most of the arguments are not new but I liked the flow of the logic, the personal touches and the amusing and penetrating illustrations. I like the way he personalises even the sceptics and fairly represents their views whilst trying to provide answers. I quite warmed to his friend 'Dave' (everyone has a friend called Dave!) who clearly disagrees with him but is still portrayed as a respected friend. Of course there are some flaws; I agreed with the idea of cumulative evidence in Ch 2 but thought the cornflakes and breakfast analogy was poor and easily rebutted by positivists who would simply take a stool sample... and there are other small weaknesses but I did like the way the argument was built logically and from different angles into a very convincing treatise. I particularly appreciated the second half of the book (after the interval) where Andrew sets out the case for a Christian world view (the 'so what?' bit) in a very logical and winsome manner. He tackles the difficult ideas of evil, redemption and belief in the resurrection of Jesus Christ extremely well, in a few very readable chapters. Buy a couple and give them away, its a stimulating and enjoyable read and very suitable for the undecided who don't want to be shouted at by either side in this increasingly polarised debate.
