David Robertson, author of The Dawkins Letters, was told by the leader of an atheist society: “Okay, I admit that you have destroyed my atheism, but what do you believe?” His answer was “I believe in and because of Jesus.” This book shows us why Jesus is the reason to believe. In response to the shout of “God is not Great” by the late Christopher Hitchens, David shows us why Jesus is God and is Great.
I love this book! It’s an excellent, conversational introduction to Christianity for non-Christians and new Christians who are wrestling with questions about Jesus, the Bible and the Christian church. Robertson brilliantly interacts with atheist objections and explains why Jesus is the magnificent obsession for hundreds of millions.

David Robertson is a thoughtful and provocative debating partner. In a society where cultural relativism prevails, David is an unashamed Christian evangelist. David and I disagree on a great many things, but we are unified understanding the importance of this ongoing debate.
Gary McClelland ~ Atheist, blogger and secular campaigner, Edinburgh, Scotland
David Robertson’s Magnificent Obsession is a Christ-exalting and Christ-centred apologetic. Beautifully written, laced with tasteful humour, here is a book you can give to your non-Christian friends.
R. T. Kendall ~ Previously minister at Westminster Chapel, London
David Robertson’s letters are engaging and insightful. In these chapters a portrait of Jesus emerges that is attractive and compelling. This book is useful no matter what your experience and where you stand on matters of faith.
