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...

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".

Condescending book, condescendingly read

If you are an insecure evangelical who needs someone to reassure you that you are right about everything, this is the book for you. If you care even a little about understanding secular philosophy, then brace yourself for a book-length display of ignorance, straw-manning, facile reasoning, and self-righteousness. Frank is a hack. I pity anyone who thinks he writes philosophy.

Audiobook Pro-Tip: The narrator is less condescending at 1.5x.

Very good book

Frank Turek makes an excellent case for Christianity and shows how atheism is really illogical because they base their arguments on premises that are only true if God exists.

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.

this book is a game changer

this was a very easy book to listen to it kept me interested the whole time. It was packed with great information it was easy to understand. it presents both an atheistic and theistic point of view based on both science and historical fact.

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.

So gripping I finished within two days.

Christian or not, I believe this is compelling and intelligent enough to just pick up and keep listening.
Frank Turek is an intelligent author as well as very honest and hearing his opinions on atheism being very duplicitous and hypocritical, with any material argument that supports their non religious belief, also supports the argument of atheist scientists doing their jobs with a bias.

I won't ruin in or go into detail, this is a must read/listen.

Interesting and enjoyable read

This book demonstrates the bankruptcy of atheism and of militant new atheism by showing how their adherents steal basic assumptions from theism. It is sufficiently different from ‘I don’t have enough faith to be an atheist’ to be worth having both. I enjoyed it

Makes a good case

I enjoyed listening to this book. Some good arguments and quotes are made. There isnt too much of a 'story' though. I also could have done without the theological parts, though they are few.

Most enjoyable read.

I have read a few books around apologetics but this is probably my favourite. very easy to follow and understand. I am going read the book he mentioned around God's treatment of the Canaanites now...

Turek's reasoning is brilliant

Interesting all the way through.

Frank is just as interesting in writing as he is in his presentations and debates. You can't fault his logic, if you go in impartial.

Outstanding

Once more Frank Turek produces a well researched book, providing specific responses to atheist claims including Richard Doking. I enjoyed the logical and philosophical arguments. It is the book to read following on from ‘ I don’t have enough faith to be an atheist ‘

Lots of witty responses

Overall this book has lots of good insights, many sharp remarks. Though I feel occasionally the tone could be a little more gentle. The target audience seems to be American uni students.
It would be better if audible could add chapter titles rather than just chp 1, chp 2... they should be:
1 Foreword
2 Introduction
3 Causality
4 Reason
5 Information and Intentionality
6 Morality
7 Evil
8 Science
9 The Four-Point Case for Mere Christianity
10 Conclusion

Good content, Poor narrating

I'm a fan of Frank Turek and wish he narrated the book instead. It sounded like a voice over from a 1980's thriller movie which was a little distracting.
