I’ve spent nearly 6 months straight pouring over books by Crabb, C.S. Lewis, Strobel, Gonzalez, and of course Geisler and Turek regarding Christianity. The latter authors of “I don’t have enough faith to be an Atheist” I’ve written about in my commentaries have been the ones who have had the most recent, although not most important, impact on my own views. After reading through 8 chapters and 217 pages I’ve finally decided that it is no longer worth the energy or effort trying to decipher or contextualize some of the worst and disingenuous writings on the Christianity/Atheism debate I’ve ever read.

For those people who are attempting to ask some serious questions about whether or not Christianity can provide answers that Atheism can not, this book professes to provide a guide to why Christianity requires less faith than Atheism. However, as this chapter delves into Intelligent Design – and does so poorly – it leaves me wondering about the motivations and the manipulative nature of Christians, instead. Note: This is a companion piece to Chapter 6 of the book, and while I’ve made every attempt to provide background when possible, there may be times when I did not adequately describe the chapter for those who have not yet read the book.
