Book Review : I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist

February 28, 2018

I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist, contains some excellent material from the world of science and history. Unfortunately, the theme of the book, I don’t have enough faith, was overdone, and at times the tone of the book was a little off-putting. I would have liked the authors, Norman Geisler and Frank Turek, to have shown a bit more respect for atheists. I understand their frustrations with many of the weak arguments put forward by atheists, but at times the book boarded on derision for their beliefs, which I found unnecessary. For this reason, I probably wouldn’t recommend it to any of my unbelieving friends, which is sad because it does contain good research and strong evidence for faith.

The book proceeds in a logical order from the beginnings of the universe, to the moral law embedded in us all, to the believability of miracles, the existence of Jesus and the reliability of the New Testament. There are also a couple of appendices containing fictional conversations with atheists. The information is explained in a down to earth, plausible way, as well as pointing out serious flaws in atheistic thinking.

Overall a fascinating look into the reasonableness of faith.
