5.0 out of 5 stars A Collection of 18 Essays by Christian Scholars., 30 July 2011
By 
This review is from: Contending with Christianity's Critics: Answering New Atheists & Other Objectors (Paperback)
The essays do address the New Atheism, but it also has a much wider scope. Although written by 17 scholars it is accessible to the well read Christian layman. For those of you who like to deal with apologetics, this is one for your library. It is in three parts:

Part 1. The existence of God
Chapter 1 Dawkin's Delusion by William Lane Craig
Chapter 2 At Home in the Multiverse? By James Daniel Sinclair
Chapter 3 Confronting Naturalism: The Argument from Reason by Victor Reppert
Chapter 4 Belief in God: A Trick of our Brain? by Michael J Murray
Chapter 5 The Moral Poverty of Evolutionary Naturalism by Mark D Linville
Chapter 6 Dawkin's Best Argument against God's Existence by Gregory E Ganssle

Part 2. The Jesus of History.
Chapter 7 Criteria for the Gospels' Authenticity by Robert H Stein
Chapter 8 Jesus the Seer by Ben Witherington III
Chapter 9 The resurrection of Jesus Time Line by Gary R Habermas
Chapter 10 How Scholars Fabricate Jesus by Craig A Evans
Chapter 11 How badly Did the Early Scribes Corrupt the New Testament? An examination of Bart Ehrman's Claims by Daniel B Wallace
Chapter 12 Who did Jesus Think He was? Michael J Wilkins

Part 3. The Coherence of Christian Doctrine.
Chapter 13 The coherence of Theism by Charles Taliaferro and Elsa J Marty
Chapter 14 Is the Trinity a Logical Blunder? God as Three in One by Paul Copan
Chapter 15 Did Jesus Become a Jew? Paul Copan
Chapter 16 Dostoyevsky, Woody Allen, and the Doctrine of Penal Substitution by Steve L Porter
Chapter 17 Hell: Getting What's Good My Own Way by Stewart Goetz
Chapter 18 What Does God Know? The Problems of Open Theism by David P Hunt

It has an author and scripture index but no subject index (but as the topics are so separate it is not really needed).

For another fascinating series of essays see God is Great, God is Good edited by William Lane Craig and Chad Meister
