The Christian Atheist: Believing in God but Living As If He Doesn’t Exist (2011)
“The more I looked, the more I found Christian Atheists everywhere.” Former Christian Atheist Craig Groeschel knows his subject all too well. After over a decade of successful ministry, he had to make a painful self admission: although he believed in God, he was leading his church like God didn’t exist.
• “Science can’t explain the complexity and order of life; God must have designed it to be this way.” • “God’s existence is proven by scripture.” • “There’s no evidence that God doesn’t exist.” • “God has helped me so much. How could none of it be true?” • “Atheism has killed more people than religion, so it must be wrong!” How many times have you heard arguments like these for why God exists?
For thousands of years, the faithful have honed proselytizing strategies and talked people into believing the truth of one holy book or another. Indeed, the faithful often view converting others as an obligation of their faith–and are trained from an early age to spread their unique brand of religion. The result is a world broken in large part by unquestioned faith.
From the #1 New York Times best-selling author of God Is Not Great, a provocative and entertaining guided tour of atheist and agnostic thought through the ages–with never-before-published pieces by Salman Rushdie, Ian McEwan, and Ayaan Hirsi Ali.Christopher Hitchens continues to make the case for a splendidly godless universe in this first-ever gathering of the influential voices–past and present–that have shaped his side of the current (and raging) God/no-god debate.
In this lively and illuminating discussion of his landmark research, esteemed primatologist Frans de Waal argues that human morality is not imposed from above but instead comes from within. Moral behavior does not begin and end with religion but is in fact a product of evolution. For many years, de Waal has observed chimpanzees soothe distressed neighbors and bonobos share their food.
What if religions are neither all true nor all nonsense? Alain de Botton’s bold and provocative book argues that we can benefit from the wisdom and power of religion—without having to believe in any of it.He suggests that rather than mocking religion, agnostics and atheists should instead steal from it—because the world’s religions are packed with good ideas on how we might live and arrange our societies.
Tragedy can strike at any time, and individual tragedies can be harrowing, painful experiences in the moment. Yet after tragedy, we can be left with feelings of doubt, guilt, grief, and loss, and the suffering can seem to have no end. We may even question our deepest beliefs. Sometimes I Wake an Atheist is a collection of hopeful personal stories of tragedy-but stories that end in triumph thanks to an abiding faith and trust in God.
An entertaining and enlightening poke at atheism by a popular speaker Addressing some of the more popular atheist sound bites about the Christian faith, The Atheist Who Didn’t Exist clears the space for a deeper and more honest discussion about the big questions of life. Our culture now assumes that atheism is the default position―indeed, the only position for anyone who wishes to be seen as educated, contemporary, and urbane.
“I wish I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist had been available when I was an atheist-it would have saved a lot of time in my spiritual journey toward God.” Lee Strobel, author, The Case for Christ, The Case for Faith, and The Case for a Creator “This extremely readable book brilliantly builds the case for Christianity from the question of truth all the way to the inspiration of the Bible.
