A Shot of Faith - To The Head

Be a Confident Believer in An Age of Cranky Atheists

by Mitch Stokes


Price: £10.99
Publisher:Thomas Nelson From TMD or Joining the Dots
Published:April 2012
A Shot of Faith is refreshing, articulate and well worth reading if you've ever had 'that' conversation with an atheist / humanist, you know the one where they ardently point out you are delusional for holding a faith and that you can't prove your faith logically so therefore it can have no basis in fact. Of course the fact that they can't actually disprove your faith logically for all their words makes this a really hard conversation to have, especially as for most people faith isn't a matter of logic, intellect and argument but rather as the word denotes a matter of faith, belief and understanding at an emotional and spiritual level. That's where A Shot of Faith can be a great book to read and tool to understanding, because it can help provide you with the basis of refutation. It calmly and clearly sets out the arguments and counter arguments and helps you to shore up your conversational gambits and arguments for the next time you are faced with a 'cranky atheist' determined to pull down your belief to shore up their unbelief.
