I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist

By Norman L. Geisler, Frank Turek, Foreword by David Limbaugh

... Show All

To some, the concept of having faith in a higher power or a set of religious beliefs is nonsensical. Indeed, many view religion in general, and Christianity in particular, as unfounded and unreasonable. 

Norman Geisler and Frank Turek argue, however, that Christianity is not only more reasonable than all other belief systems, but is indeed more rational than unbelief itself. With conviction and clear thinking, Geisler and Turek guide readers through some of the traditional, tested arguments for the existence of a creator God. They move into an examination of the source of morality and the reliability of the New Testament accounts concerning Jesus. The final section of the book deals with a detailed investigation of the claims of Christ. This volume will be an interesting read for those skeptical about Christianity, as well as a helpful resource for Christians seeking to articulate a more sophisticated defense of their faith.

Endorsements

"I already know ten people to whom I will give this book. It's truly a Godsend."
David Limbaugh, Author, Absolute Power and Persecution, from the Foreword

"I wish [this book] 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 and The Case for Faith

"If you're still a skeptic after reading I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist, then I suspect you're living in denial!"
Josh McDowell, author and speaker

"Atheism requires gobs of blind faith while the path of logic and reason leads straight to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Geisler and Turek convincingly show why."
Phillip E. Johnson, author, Darwin on Trial and Reason in the Balance

"I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist will equip, exhort, and encourage you'to give the reason for the hope that you have . . . with gentleness and respect.'"
Hank Hanegraaff, President, Christian Research Institute; Host, Bible Answer Man broadcast

"This book should disturb anyone claiming to be an atheist . . . perhaps enough to persuade them to begin a search for the God who has been there all along."
Cal Thomas, Syndicated Columnist, Host, After Hours, Fox News Channel

"Geisler and Turek present the crucial information needed to avoid being swept away by the onslaughts of secular ideologies that cast science, philosophy, and biblical studies as enemies of the Christian faith."
William A. Dembski, Senior Fellow, Center for Science and Culture, Discovery Institute; author, Being as Communion
