Robertson wanted there to be an intelligent Christian response. After some
ill thought through interventions in the media it was obvious that no one
was really going to answer the real issues so David Robertson wrote an open
letter to Richard Dawkins on his church website. This has found its way
into Richard Dawkins website, where it generated the largest response of
any posting before or since.
This ferocity of the responses and the shallowness of the thinking that it
exhibited, spurred David to write this book. Christians need to know where
Dawkins is weak and we need to explain things better! It draws upon David's
experience as a debater, letter writer, pastor and author.
This is a very honest book. It agrees with Dawkins where appropiate but
also does not hesitate to point out where some of his thinking does not
hold together - It is written in a gentle spirit of enquiry.
