Given my previous posts and the exploration the D.Min students I lead will be making next term/semester of Atheism, I wondered what resources you might recommend?
Dr Peter Boghossian and Matt Casper have made their suggestions, all pro atheism books and materials, and we will engage with some of those. I've been looking for critiques of atheism, those by Christians and those from atheists themselves.
So far my top picks for students to engage with are:
1. Reason, Faith and Revolution: Reflections on the God Debate, by Terry Eagleton.
Eagleton comes from Catholic background, and understands faith, but he won't admit to being a Christian. His critique of the 'straw man' of religion that Dawkins and Hitchens use, is key to critiquing new-Atheism.
2. The Devil's Delusion: Atheism and its Scientific Pretensions, by David Berlinksi.
Berlinksi is a secular jewish and mathematician who critiques the science of the new atheists and their philosophy, and finds it very wanting.
3. The Dawkins Delusion?: Atheist Fundamentalism and the Denial of the Divine, By Alistair McGrath.
McGrath once an atheist with a PhD in science/chemistry, and then working at Cambridge University, ends up with a PhD in theology, becomes a theology lecturer at Oxford university, and then one of the most well known critics of the new-Atheism. Not to mention now being one of the most well known theologians in the UK.
So anything you'd recommend?
