There is widespread confusion about the nature of religious truth. For the first time in history, a significantly large number of people want nothing to do with God. Militant atheists preach a gospel of godlessness with the zeal of missionaries and find an eager audience. Tracing the history of faith from the Palaeolithic Age to the present, Karen Armstrong shows that meaning of words such as 'belief', 'faith', and 'mystery' has been entirely altered, so that atheists and theists alike now think and speak about God - and, indeed, reason itself - in a way that our ancestors would have found astonishing. Does God have a future? Karen Armstrong examines how we can build a faith that speaks to the needs of our troubled and dangerously polarised world.

Today's New Atheists don't just deny God's existence (as the old atheists did) - they consider it their duty to scorn and ridicule religious belief. We don't need new answers for this aggressive modern strain of unbelief: We need a new approach. In Answering Atheism, Trent Horn responds with a fresh and useful resource for the God debate, based on reason, common sense, and more importantly, a charitable approach that respects atheists' sincerity and good will, making this book suitable not just for believers but for skeptics and seekers too. Meticulously researched, and street-tested in Horn's work as a pro-God apologist, it tackles all the major issues of the debate, including: -Reconciling human evil and suffering with the existence of a loving, all-powerful God -Whether the empirical sciences have eliminated the need for God, or in fact point to him -How atheists usually deny moral laws (and thus a moral lawgiver) in theory

"What evidence exists for believeing in a Creator?" the skeptics ask. By reversing the question, this collection of writings will attempt to show that if evidence, such as an absolutely unique and matchless book exists, which cannot possibly be the product of one or even a group of humans, then how could it not point to the existence of an uber-knowledgeable Creator? The only possibility is that it originated from advanced extra terrestrials. The Qur'an boldly claims to be such a revelation and challenges all comers to verify or even try to falsify these claims. The attendant question as to which of the claimed revelations could fulfill this requirement is tackled, not on the basis of prior allegiance, but by developing objective criteria for evaluating the authenticity of such claimed revelations.

Atheism and accidentalism are increasingly taken for granted as default positions, as if they have been proven by scientists. However, writes Keith Ward, there is a huge amount of evidence for the reality of a spiritual dimension. There is level of being that is deeper than the physical universe, that has purpose and value, and we humans can sometimes feel it and find in it resources of strength, hope, and inspiration. There is something like mind or consciousness at the heart of reality. Through an exploration of six areas of human experience - the arts, morality, philosophy, science, religion and personal experience - Ward demonstrates the existence of more than simply physical facts. His evidence builds to an impressive argument for a 'sense for the spiritual dimension' that is beyond and yet expressed in and through physical facts.

In the twenty-first century, there is a battle raging over the hearts and minds of our people, especially for the education of our children in scientific fields. Christians have become concerned that science has appeared to be a realm meant primarily for nonbelievers. This book was written to help change that perception! Dr. G.A. Rogers is a former senior flight surgeon for the Department of Defense and NASA. He was the chief of aerospace medicine at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, where he had astronauts among his patients. He has been trained by a great variety of scientific personnel at locations ranging from medical school to Kennedy Space Center. Dr. Rogers has taken his combined educational concepts and applied them to both the Holy Bible and the universe. He considers science to be the very expression of God's work within our universe. He takes equations like E = mC2 to reveal the beauty of our existence. He looks into the concept of Black Holes as principles for our actions, as revealed in the Bible itself. His approach to the scientific evidence even reveals how the space-time continuum from the Big Bang was derived by God! The reader will walk through the halls of science to learn how scientists from Sir Isaac Newton to Albert Einstein and beyond have discovered amazing technological concepts. Then see how these scientific breakthroughs actually relate to the Word of God for our time and even to prophecies of the Last Days! This book was designed to illuminate the mind of those who trust in God as the Creator of all things!

In his #1 best-seller The Case for Christ, legally trained investigative reporter Lee Strobel examined the claims of Christ, reaching the hard-won verdict that Jesus is God's unique son. But despite the compelling historical evidence that Strobel presented, many people grapple with serious concerns about faith in God. As in a court of law, they want to shout, "Objection!" They say, "If God is love, then what about all the suffering in our world?" Or, "If Jesus is the door to heaven, then what about the millions who have never heard of him?" Or, "If God cares for everyone, then why does he eternally torture some in hell?"In The Case for Faith, Strobel turns his tenacious investigative skills to the most persistent emotional objections to belief--the eight "heart" barriers to faith. The Case for Faith is for those who may be feeling attracted to Jesus but who are faced with formidable intellectual barriers standing squarely in their path. For Christians, it will deepen their convictions and give them fresh confidence in discussing Christianity with even their most skeptical friends.

Some of the brightest scientific minds of our time, from Albert Einstein to Stephen Hawking, have made incredible insights into the earliest origins of the universe, but have failed to ultimately discover why there is something rather than nothing—why we exist. In A Case for the Existence of God, Dean L. Overman examines the latest theories about the origins of the universe and explains why even the most sophisticated science can only take us so far. Ultimately we must make a leap of faith to understand the world, and Overman argues that a leap into theism provides the most satisfying conclusions. Overman explores fundamental questions about why our world exists and how it functions, using principles of logic, physics, and theology. In a time when religion and science are often portrayed as diametrically opposed, A Case for the Existence of God presents a refreshing view of the interplay between science and religion and makes a compelling case for the existence of God and his role in our world.
