Why God Won't Go Away by Alister McGrath

These Christians are coming out in droves to defend their faith against the New Atheists.

Alister McGrath has written a book attempting to prove that the New Atheism movement has run its course and is about to become obsolete. Why God Won't Go Away is his rebuttal to most of their claims.

Part 1 is all about the New Atheist movement: how it started and what they are promoting now.

Part 2 tries to wrestle with their biggest arguments against religion: violence, science and reason.

Part 3 argues that the idea of God will not leave the psyche of collective thought. Hence, God won't go away.

McGrath includes some additional reading for those who are interested in continuing their search for meatier arguments. But my thoughts are, people will never be able to prove nor disprove the existence of God. We will always have arguments and counter arguments for as long as there are two people alive.

This is just another book that only a select few will be interested in.

Why God Won't Go Away: Is the New Atheism Running on Empty?
