Eleven Christians – including a biologist, a psychiatrist, a journalist, and a debater – came on 11 different paths to God. How and why? This book is the compilation of their answers and experiences written in response to Bertrand Russel’s Why I Am Not A Christian.

Contributors include Donald Bruce, Alistair Donald, Henk Drost, Elaine Duncan, Alex MacDonald, Pablo Martinez, David Randall, David Robertson, Chris Sinkinson, Heather Tomlinson and Ravi Zacharias.

Each of the contributors bring a warmth and rigor that is both personal and fully engaged with the questions our world – and our hearts – ask. This book will help your heart rejoice in the God who is Lord over every square inch of his creation, and whose word is trustworthy and true.

With Atheism having well and truly arrived as the new kid on the block in today’s secular society, this book is a valuable resource for all who take the big questions of life seriously. Neither academic in style, nor polemic in tone, it combines good-going apologetics with the narrative of personal stories, all in a thoroughly readable and always engaging way: believers will be emboldened, doubters fortified, and atheists warmly challenged!

The conscious and purposeful choice of atheism as a creed (and as an active and militant creed) is becoming a notable feature of western culture today. Usually atheists claim to hold to their position as a matter of consistent logic, reason, science and compelling weighing of evidence, while it is Christians who are considered (often in a very disparaging way) simply to have embraced ‘blind faith’ which ignores all these.
This book, however, presents considered arguments from eleven intelligent, thinking people from a range of professional spheres, each of whom argues persuasively (and politely) why in their eyes atheism has been found intellectually wanting. They have either abandoned or rejected atheism for very good reasons.
No doubt there are some closed-minded atheists who simply will not want to engage with a book like this. But for the many honest, open-minded sceptics who do want to reasonably weigh all the evidence, this book will be thought-provoking, stimulating and perhaps even life-changing.
