Description

Most critiques of atheism focus on refuting head-on the claims of atheists. Instead, this unique book faithfully represents what atheists say they believe and stands back to watch as the natural inconsistencies in that worldview inevitably rise to the surface.

Norman L. Geisler, the apologetic giant of our time, is joined by Daniel J. McCoy, highlighting two inconsistencies in particular. First they examine the atheist's assertion that God cannot exist because there is evil in the world and that if God truly existed, he would intervene. These same people then turn around and say any intervention on God's part would impose upon human autonomy, and thus would be unjust. Second, these very interventions that would be considered immoral if imposed upon the earth by God are lauded when they stem instead from some human institution or authority.

Geisler and McCoy highlight this kind of "doublethink" step by step, showing readers how to identify such inconsistencies in atheistic arguments and refute them--or rather show atheists how they refute themselves.

Advance Praise

"In The Atheist's Fatal Flaw, Geisler and McCoy present the principle and contradicting theories of atheism. This is not your typical apologetics book: for Christians seeking a strong foothold in logic, reason, and faith, the authors show how little argument is actually needed to refute atheist claims. A must-have for your library."

Josh D. McDowell, author and speaker

"By allowing the atheists themselves to do the talking via the use of literally dozens of primary- source quotations, Geisler and McCoy repeatedly catch these skeptics in their own humanistic nets. It often seems to be assumed that Christians must answer the most pointed questions on these topics, but Geisler and McCoy take the offensive, emphasizing chiefly the need for atheists to think more clearly and especially to stop contradicting themselves. This volume is recommended especially for those who are interested in the current debates on the subject of the New Atheism."

Gary R. Habermas, distinguished research professor and chair of the Department of Philosophy at Liberty University

"The Atheist's Fatal Flaw offers a concise and important look at the logical fallacies of today's atheism and how to respond from a biblical perspective. Readers will find the information they need to better comprehend and communicate their faith to both skeptics and to believers who desire to share the reason for the hope within them."
