Against All Gods: What’s Right and Wrong about the New Atheism

Original Article

Widely considered a founder of the contemporary intelligent design (ID) scientific movement, law professor and author Phillip Johnson’s 1991 book Darwin on Trial convinced many thinkers that neo-Darwinian evolution was based more on the philosophy of naturalism than on the scientific evidence. Now, Johnson has teamed up with John Mark Reynolds to write Against All Gods: What’s Right and Wrong about the New Atheism. More than just commentary on the actions and ideas of recent vociferous atheist thinkers, Johnson and Reynolds help us see the unique opportunity that presents itself. While their conclusions may be hasty and inaccurate, the new atheists are putting serious discussion about God back on the public agenda. Against All Gods equips readers with ways to engage this new, aggressive form of antireligious activity and takes on the question of where the evidence seems to point.
