Atheist Delusions

Anyone who follows and trusts the popular level atheism of writers like Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, Christopher Hitchens or Daniel Dennett should read: 

Atheist Delusions: The Christian Revolution and Its Fashionable Enemies by David Bentley Hart

Hart must be the most feared critic of militant atheism. His brilliant, evenhanded and gracious exposure of a pompous and platitudinous methodology and blatant errors of every kind is immensely encouraging. His book is perhaps the best available critique of so-called “New Atheism.”

“One does not have to believe any of it, of course—the Christian story, its moral claims, its metaphysical systems, and so forth. But anyone who chooses to lament that event should also be willing, first, to see this image of the God-man, broken at the foot of the cross, for what it is, in the full mystery of its historical contingency, spiritual pathos, and moral novelty: that tender agony of the soul that finds the glory of God in the most abject and defeated of human forms. Only if one has succeeded in doing this can it be of any significance if one still, then, elects to turn away.” Hart
