The Christian Delusion (ed. by John Loftus) is one of the top four books I recommend to Christians. It’s arguments against Christianity are devastating. Thus, I’m gratified that at least one theologian has tried to respond to the book.
Here is evangelical theologian Randal Rauser on The Christian Delusion:
- Part 1: “This book completely destroys Christianity.”
- Part 2: Do atheists care about truth?
- Part 3: Chameleon Christianity
- Part 4: Christian flip-flopping?
- Part 5: Those cunning Christians
- Part 6: Everyone’s irrational, therefore Christians are irrational
- Part 7: “The unanimous consensus of rational people“
- Part 8: Faith or skepticism?
- The Outsider Test for politics comes alive!
- Outsider Test for faith or truth seeker for life
- Why the Outsider Test had better go big or go home
- On Babinski’s evidential burden
- Is the Bible merely a product of its times?
- The Tentative Apologist receives a stern reprimand
- Part 9: The Bible Babinski thinks God should have written
- The burden of the critic
- The Christian Delusion, Paul Tobin, reasoned faith and inspiration
- The Bible and Metallica seeks to win over Susan Boyle fans (but not really)
- Properly read, the Bible should make you… an atheist?
- Freud and “The Christian Delusion”
- Hector Avalos puts Yahweh in the dock
Loftus’ Debunking Christianity has posted some responses to Rauser’s posts:
- Babinski responds to Rauser on Biblical cosmology
- Eller responds to Rauser
- Loftus responds to Rauser on the Outsider Test for Faith: Part 1 and Part 2
- Silver Bullet on Randal Rauser
- Loftus: How to avoid the question, lessons from Randal Rauser
