Publisher's Summary

What if your best reasons to doubt God prove that He exists? In an engaging and memorable way, Stealing From God shows how many atheistic arguments, instead of disproving God, reveal that He actually exists.

TERRIBLE NARRATOR

I couldn't make it through the first 15 minutes. The man reading this book sounded like he was trying to make a joke out of it. Incredible shame because it's a great book and the the content is excellent, but the reader read it like a high schooler making fun of a wrestle mania announcer...

Eye Opening

This was an excellent exploration for the logical basis for God, morality and objective knowledge. Very clear and engaging!

Turek books- always packed with good stuff!

it was a good book, with basic topics that expose the flaw of man's sin.

Amazingly we'll organized arguments.

I enjoyed this book the entire way through. Great arguments and very witty.

The voice of the narrator however drove me a little crazy. He has the same narration style as every Hollywood Action movie preview. Way too
low and growly!

Love Frank though he's the BEST!

A thorough examination of the fallacies of atheism

Every effect MUST have a cause.
Atheism DENIES REASON.
Design with INTENTION can be no accident.
Objective moral judgement requires a transcendent moral standard.
Evil is evidence that GOODNESS exists.
Science requires the use of immaterial laws and assumptions and cannot, therefore be used to assert the nonexistence of an immaterial reality.
Science points directly to just the kind of Being as described by the biblical text.
NO other "holy book" contains the evidences to demonstrate a timeless, omniscient, eternal, personal, intentional Being of the kind our scientific discoveries demand must exist ...like the One called Yahweh, the Self - Existent " I AM".

great use of logic

I am a big fan of logical, reasonable arguments without emotion. This fits the bill.

Excellent summation for believing in God

The better philosophical and scientific points for theism are made with great order and clarity. My only critique is that the narrator's voice combined with the repeated cutting sarcasm make this book better suited to defending the faith rather than winning the skeptic.

Fantastic and yet Disappointing

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

This book was well worth the time spent listening to it. A major part of the book, the part addressed in the title, were very well written for the most part. They would greatly encourage people who are struggling with atheistic thinking or speaking with an atheist. This I believe was the main point of the book, so that is why it is well worth it.

Would you be willing to try another book from Frank Turek? Why or why not?

I am not sure I would listen to another book by Turek or not. For 80% of the book I was immensely satisfied and would have recommended him to anyone, and then came the final two chapters that were so incredibly disappointing that my rating went from 5 stars to 3 stars.

Which scene was your favorite?

The chapters on Causality, Rationality, Morality, and Ethics were superb.

Did Stealing From God inspire you to do anything?

It inspired me to listen to Paul Copan's book "Is God a Moral Monster?" (Please don't take that as an endorsement for that book because I am only starting to listen to it)

Any additional comments?

This book started out well, and really did great throughout most of it (though I felt the chapters on Information and Science fell short) and then near the finish line the tires began to wobble and then nearly fell completely off in the final chapter. Just a few comments on each...

The chapter on Information and Intent - This really was an excellent chapter for the most part, but it fell short in that it did not take the listener to where each of the other chapters did, which was to demonstrate that in an atheistic worldview Information is impossible in principle. It somehow seemed to leave the door open for naturalists somehow someday being able to explain information or intent, which is in principle impossible.

The chapter on Science - This too was a relatively decent chapter and just fell short of explaining how scientific inquiry is impossible in an atheistic worldview. I guess I also expected to find how Science is absolutely dependent upon a Christian Theistic worldview, but that might not have been in the scope of the chapter, though he did mention it. It started to go there but never quite got to that point.

The chapter on establishing Christianity - I was disappointed that the author ended up building his case for the truth of Christianity (that the New Testament is historically reliable) ultimately upon a large amount of external evidences. Not only does this make the Bible subject to and dependent upon other truths and authorities, but evidence is always interpreted according to one's preexisting beliefs, which makes everyone's opinions equally valid. Rather, Scripture demonstrates itself to be divine and authoritative without the need of other so-called authorities propping it up. In fact, all of those other authorities rely completely on things established exclusively in Scripture to prop them up.

The final chapter - So this chapter just left a bad taste in my mouth, because the author uses emotional excuses or reasons for the truth of hell and ends up (at points) misrepresenting God's character, His nature and hell in the process. His answers to questions went from logical and necessary in the early chapters of the book to weak, emotional, and unbiblical at the end. There are very sufficient and emotionally satisfying answers to these questions but they were not found here. So if I could toss this chapter out the book would have been 4.5 stars, but as it remains I can only do 3 stars because of what was written here.

Nuanced entertaining apologetics

A very well structured collection of arguments and proofs for the God with intention in everything. Along with analogies, testimonies from proponets and opponents of a theistic worldview, and a chapter dedicated to Christianity, you get a clear view of what Christianity really is. The truths of God and what is generally done to dismiss the arguments are deeply covered; showing that most of the objections to God carry logical liabilities that are overlooked.

Enlightening

Excellent book for the seeking mind. It's amazing how all creation points to the existence of an unmoved mover.
Great book for the thinking Christian and the searching atheist.
