I'm a Christian with an interest in apologetics. A year or so ago, I started looking into the Atheist worldview. I've listened to his podcast, The Thinking Atheist, and wanted to give his book a read, for research purposes. I'm not impressed at all.
He bases his "de-conversion" on poor reasoning and a distorted idea of what Christianity actually is. While Seth is a gifted narrator (from his background in radio), he nonetheless blasphemes the God who made him.
I would not waste my money on another book. His arguments don't really offer anything new.
This book didn't make me angry, rather sad that Seth didn't have a better Christian foundation before he started questioning his faith. It's easy to fall away from a shallow, superficial version of Christianity. As he says in the beginning, "[He] was never really saved." But I pray God would draw Seth to Himself and grant him repentance and faith in Christ.
I'm into apologetics, and already own a copy of this book. However, it's a fantastic one to have in audio format, especially when read by Strobel himself. Thanks for offering it.
It's an antithesis to The God Delusion, for one thing. Then again, Dawkins' book is poorly reasoned, so maybe the comparison is a tad unfair...
No, this is my first. I own several of his books in written form, though.
I just really appreciate the content, and it's convenient to have in audio form.
