David Marshall makes no apologies for being a Christian apologist. However, his critique of the New Atheism movement is fair, frank and clearly articulated. Focusing on the works of Dawkins, Dennett and Harris, Marshall lays out the seven pillars of their case against religion. Namely: "1) Faith is irrational. Faith means `believing not only without evidence, but in the teeth of evidence', as Dawkins famously put it. 2) Evolution undercuts any reason there may have once been to believe in God (which is why few eminent scientists are religious). 3) Biological and social evolution can explain the origin of religion. 4) The Bible is, at best, a jumbled aggregate of theological cullings that do little to enrich humanity and much to harm us. 5) The Jesus of history was (at best) mortal. 6) Christians in the United States (the `American Taliban' Dawkins calls them) constitute a profound threat to democracy. 7) All in all, the world would be better off without the gospel of Jesus Christ, or any religion." (p. 9) Marshall then skillfully and without resorting to hyperbole, proceeds to expose the intellectual vacuity of their arguments, citing such eminent scholars as Richard Swinburne, Alister McGrath and Nicholas Wolterstorff in the process. While the book never claims to be an academic work it is none the less well written and well researched. While there are times when Marshall makes references to Asian religions (his area of expertise) that seem a bit forced, he generally stays on message: Faith is not irrational, revelation is epistemologically sound and despite some of the historic failings of Christendom, Christianity has been a far greater force for good in the world than ill. I would recommend this book to anyone who may find themselves (or someone they know) confronted by the self-proclaimed prophets of the New Atheism movement.
