God or Godless?
One Atheist. One Christian. Twenty Controversial Questions
by John W Loftus and Randal Rauser
Publisher:Baker Books imprint of Baker Pub. from Lion
Wow, what an excellent book, a real conversation / argument between an atheist (who once was a believer) and a believer who love to have philosophical debates. In fact some of us may even have had similar conversations in our lives, but what is so good about this book is that is deals with the philosophical differences between the two and shows the reasoning differences in a manner that is much cooler than most arguments and differences between the two opposing sides. I think what I also found noteable about it is that in many ways it doesn't come down in favour of one side of the argument or the other, thus it is a book for both sides to read and in doing so there may be some concrete dialogue and opening of hearts and minds beyond what you would expect. I think this is a book for anyone to read and would make a foundational discussion starter. I could see it working well in a college / university chaplaincy setting or with any group of questioning individuals. A top book for the atheist / Christian debate but not the usual one and that's why it's so important.
