A common charge levelled against people with religious beliefs in general, and with Christian convictions in particular, is that their beliefs are motivated not by reasonable evidence but by psychological needs. In fact, many respected people, accepting the arguments of atheist thinkers, believe that psychology and the social sciences have explained away religion.

In this thoroughly revised and updated edition of If There's a God, Why are There Atheists?, R.C. Sproul examines the arguments of four prominent atheists:

- Sigmund Freud: religion arises out of guilt and the fear of nature.

- Karl Marx: religion is used to keep the lower classes happy.

- Ludwig Feuerbach: religion is only wish-fulfilment.

- Friedrich Nietzsche: religion is rooted in man's weakness.

Engaging with these thinkers' works on a psychological as well as theological basis, Sproul shows that there are as many psychological and sociological explanations for unbelief as for belief - and that atheistic conclusions should not be accepted blindly.

For the believer who is troubled by doubts or who wants to respond intelligently to unbelievers, it offers clear, thought-provoking analysis. For the unbeliever who has an open mind, it offers stimulating debate, worthy of time and thought.

The Latest Scientific Discoveries Point to an Intentional Creator

Most of us remember the basics from science classes about how Earth came to be the only known planet that sustains complex life. But what most people don't know is that the more thoroughly researchers investigate the history of our planet, the more astonishing the story of our existence becomes. The number and complexity of the astronomical, geological, chemical, and biological features recognized as essential to human existence have expanded explosively within the past decade. An understanding of what is required to make possible a large human population and advanced civilizations has raised profound questions about life, our purpose, and our destiny. Are we really just the result of innumerable coincidences? Or is there a more reasonable explanation?

This fascinating book helps nonscientists understand the countless miracles that undergird the exquisitely fine-tuned planet we call home--as if Someone had us in mind all along.

The debate over the origin of life and the universe is ancient, but in recent years it has reached a fever pitch. While incendiary rhetoric from parts of the scientific community disallows any challenge to Darwinian evolution, a growing number of scientists and experts support a supernatural origin of life, also known as the theory of intelligent design. Intelligent Design 101 brings together leading scholars and researchers from the fields of science and intelligent design studies. Their detailed and insightful essays form a balanced introduction to intelligent design, from the basics of the theory, to its history and growing place in science and education.

  • Voted a 2000 Book of the Year by Christianity Today
  • The Intelligent Design movement is three things:
  • a scientific research program for investigating intelligent causes
  • an intellectual movement that challenges naturalistic evolutionary theories
  • a way of understanding divine action
  • Although the fast-growing movement has gained considerable grassroots support, many scientists and theologians remain skeptical about its merits. Scientists worry that it's bad science (merely creationism in disguise) and theologians worry that it's bad theology (misunderstanding divine action). In this book William Dembski addresses these concerns and brilliantly argues that intelligent design provides a crucial link between science and theology. Various chapters creatively and powerfully address intelligent discernment of divine action in nature, why the significane of miracles should be reconsidered, and the demise and unanswered questions of British natural theology. Effectively challenging the hegemony of naturalism and reinstating design within science, Dembski shows how intelligent design can be unpacked as a theory of information. Intelligent Design is a pivotal, synthesizing work from a thinker whom Phillip Johnson calls "one of the most important of the design theorists who are sparking a scientific revolution by legitimating the concept of intelligent design in science."

    A recent string of popular-level books written by the New Atheists have leveled the accusation that the God of the Old Testament is nothing but a bully, a murderer, and a cosmic child abuser. This viewpoint is even making inroads into the church. How are Christians to respond to such accusations? And how are we to reconcile the seemingly disconnected natures of God portrayed in the two testaments?

    In this timely and readable book, apologist Paul Copan takes on some of the most vexing accusations of our time, including:


    God is arrogant and jealous
    God punishes people too harshly
    God is guilty of ethnic cleansing
    God oppresses women
    God endorses slavery
    Christianity causes violence
    and more


    Copan not only answers God's critics, he also shows how to read both the Old and New Testaments faithfully, seeing an unchanging, righteous, and loving God in both.

    What can we really know for sure about the past? Can anything from ancient history be regarded as 'fact'? In particular, how seriously can we take the historical sources for the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth? Did he really even live in first-century Galilee and Judaea, or is he a figure of legend?

    In this timely book, historian Dr John Dickson unpacks how the field of history works, giving readers the tools to evaluate for themselves what we can confidently say about figures like the Emperor Tiberius, Alexander the Great, Pontius Pilate, and, of course, Jesus of Nazareth.

    He presents the evidence, methods, and conclusions of mainstream scholars--both Christian and not--and asks some pertinent contemporary questions, without offering any pushy answers: If Jesus really did exist, what are we to make of his own claims and those of his followers, and what would any of it mean for us today?

    Was this tomb kept secret for 28 years, indicating a cover-up? Are scholars correct in linking the Mariame inscription in the tomb to Mary Magdalene? Can the tenth ossuary missing be that of James, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus? Can we really trust the Bible's account that Jesus rose from the dead? Can the resurrection be understood spiritually instead of physically? Does science disprove the resurrection?
