Format: Paperback
Having read the first three reviews, I was under the impression that this book would balance itself nicely between athiesm and religion, undertaking a thorough and enlightening view of both sides of the fence.
Unfortunately this is not the case, and the reviews are dissapintingly misleading. The book is written by quite a strong pro-Christian, and primarily spends the majority it's time detailing down where Dawkins et al have been going wrong - and what a concern atheism is to the wider world!?!?
This book unfortunately lands very squarely in the pro-religous camp (unless you are a devout Christian and subsequently see it as a very fair and un-biased read!) so be aware.

(don't take my word for it - use the "see inside" function and read some for yourself!)

I have not read this book, however I HAVE just read the first two opening paragraphs. The author uses the analogy of Rourkes Drift (via the movie 'Zulu'), with the christians being 'surrounded' by the nasty atheists. Hmm. Surely it should be the other way round? For thousands of years religious dissenters have been persecuted and murdered by devout believers. It still goes on in some parts of the world today. Perhaps the analogy SHOULD BE that the atheists have been utterly surrounded for quite some time now, but have staged a mighty and heroic counter attack against seemingly impossible odds. Watching THIS movie, I know who I would be cheering for...

Based upon the first page, I don't think I'll be reading this book as the author certainly appears to have a somewhat skewed (biased) view of the situation.

Interestingly this book makes the assumption in the title that is supported by the author in the book.
He may be quite right that 'some' atheists are W**kers Too.
The 'Too' says it all.
It seems from the arguments made in this book that any one holding the beliefs of the author are very definitely W**kers.
While only 'some' of those agreeing with the four eminent individuals mentioned in the title may be described as such.

This book has no real value.

I have not read all of this book because it very quickly became evident that this is a dishonest attempt by a christian apologist to trash the opposition.

The title of this work is deliberately provocative and the product description and author details make it clear that this is a book written with a clear agenda by someone holding a very specific place within a religious perspective.
However, this means that the presentation is the product of passion, enthusiasm, experience and informed comment. It is written in an engaging and personable style which makes for easy reading. It is, nonetheless, still a very serious work which puts forward thoughtful and reflective argumentation.
Don't be misled by the title for this is not an attack on atheism or atheists per se, but rather a very specific response to some of the rhetoric of certain "celebrity" atheists, namely the self-styled Four Horsemen. The author is certainly not in the fundamentalist or conservative religious camp and is not only careful to distinguish between different types of Christians but also different types of atheists. To use the author's own terminology, it is the Militant Evangelical Atheists (or MEA's) that he has in his sights.
Yet even here, a qualification is needed, in that the author concludes with a call for constructive dialogue and even "shared action" between theists and atheists, for the well-being of our world, instead of aggressive debate and confrontation. Hardly an extreme position! In fact, there is much in this book that may upset or annoy certain types of religious believer!
Therefore, contrary to one review already posted, the author does not spend his time detailing "what a concern atheism is to the wider world." He does however, respond robustly and vigorously to the militant ideology of certain atheists and their "demonisation" of religion.
Finally some comments regarding the title may be appropriate.
