John DeRosa debuts his new book, One Less God Than You.
If you have spent any time on Twitter, in a college quad, or at the dinner table with a freshman philosophy major, you’re probably familiar with the litany of slogans that religious skeptics employ in an attempt to rescue you from the foolish belief that God exists.
Even our public schools and mainstream media often can’t help but parrot the tropes and memes that seem to leave thinking people with no alternative but to embrace atheism.
How can a Christian respond?
You can ignore them—but then you miss a chance to evangelize and to strengthen your own faith. You can spend years mastering theistic apologetics before you reply—but that takes, well, years. Or you can let John DeRosa (Classical Theism) help. In One Less God Than You, he breaks down twenty of the most common atheist challenges, exposes their substantive and logical weaknesses, and shows you how to craft effective answers.
Atheism is more aggressive and widespread than ever before, so we believers have a crucial task before us. Read One Less God Than You and prepare yourself to respond with the joyful truth that God is real.
