Answering the Objections of Atheists, Agnostics, and Skeptics

by Ron Rhodes

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


A straight-forward volume which lists up to the minute challenges and gives answers garnered from Christian scholars, modern research, and the Bible, Answering the Objections of Atheists, Agnostics, and Skeptics makes a useful tool for all active Christians. Starting with a look at our beliefs, this volume then presents an overview of atheism, agnosticism, and skepticism. The main section is divided into separate categories of objections. The objections considered range through a wide variety of ideas – evolution vs. intelligent design, absolute morality, the bias of the Gospel writers, how accurately could a book be transmitted faithfully through the centuries, Jesus was only a moral teacher, and many more. All these challenges receive careful, detailed, and fully proven Christian answers. Several charts and lists encourage the reader’s understanding. All references are annotated. The footnotes section makes an ample bibliography for further reading. A call to Christian courtesy and a declaration of what it means to believe draw this book to a challenging finish.

The author, Ron Rhodes is a prominent Christian writer and speaker, and president of Reasoning from the Scriptures Ministries. While obviously erudite, the author’s style is readily understandable to the lay person. Of interest to pastors, teachers, debaters, witnessing Christians, parents, high school and college students, and those who work out in the world, Answering the Objections of Atheists, Agnostics, and Skeptics belongs on everyone’s reference bookshelf, as well as in their briefcase, desk, or car so they can take quick looks at it when and where challenges arise. – Donna Eggett, Christian Book

Book Jacket:

Ever felt overwhelmed by those who question Christianity?

Perhaps you know the frustration that comes from not being able to answer the tough questions unbelievers ask about God and the Christian faith. You know what you believe, but you're not able to explain it clearly or defend it.

This book will give you powerful, concise responses for those hard-to-answer objections, such as:

  • There's no such thing as absolute truth
  • Because of suffering and evil, God cannot possibly exist
  • Science and the Bible are not compatible
  • The claim that Jesus is the "only way" is narrow minded
Enjoy the confidence that comes from knowing exactly what to say, and how to back it up!
