Description
If you're looking for clear-cut answers to difcult questions about God-or for your guy to score a quick knock-out of a toughened sparring partner-then this book is not for you. But if you're open to an authentic, no-holds barred, respectful dialogue about one of life's most important issues, then take up and read. There are no straw men here. Sparked by a chance meeting between two book-club acquaintances and their discussion of Kurt Vonnegut's obituary, this dialogue between long-time Christian Jim Sire and forthright atheist Carl Peraino developed through extended email exchanges exploring minds and brains, science and morality, faith and reason, God and violence, doubt and rhetoric. You'll find much to ponder, weigh and explore in this lively, down-to-earth book. A study guide is included for any who wish to delve deeper into any of the issues raised. James W. Sire (Ph.D., University of missouri), formerly a senior editor at interVarsity Press, is an active speaker and writer. He has taught english, philosophy, theology and short courses at many universities and seminaries.
His interVarsity Press books include The Universe Next Door: A Basic Worldview Catalog, Why Should Anyone Believe Anything at All?, Habits of the Mind: Intellectual Life as a Christian Calling, Naming the Elephant: Worldview as a Concept and Why Good Arguments Often Fail.
