EA Review of 'A Sceptic's Guide to Atheism'

Evangelical Alliance 'Public Theology Researcher' Susannah Clark has written a review of A Sceptic's Guide to Atheism (Paternoster, 2009). Some edited highlights:

'If you ever feel unsure of how to answer questions sceptics may have, want to educate yourself or your congregation to be informed about the sorts of debates concerning God prominent in the public square, or find yourself confused by conflicting viewpoints in books and the media, then this book is for you. It is not a particularly light read, covering many different arguments and viewpoints in a short space of time, but it is a very helpful overview and introduction to the themes and ideas each chapter presents...

Williams is impressive in the level of depth and sophistication his arguments go into and the breadth of understanding he demonstrates around the issues...

Given that the questions the book examines are the kinds of questions that are relevant to many people and common questions asked, likely to come up in discussion and evangelism, this book can provide some very thorough grounding to be able to understand and respond to the arguments, and is the sort of book that would likely be useful to refer back to long after it has initially been read. I would thoroughly recommend it as a helpful tool to anyone wishing to educate themselves around these questions. God is back in the public debate – use this book to help you engage in those debates in an informed and well researched way.'
