    Hmmmmm . . .

    No atheist blogs?

    You should show the same courage at least as an Atheist (or anti-theist) like Hitchens did and put yourself in direct contact with those you judge, as he did when he presented his case in person at bible conferences across America.

    Why are you only engaging those who already agree with your premise?

    Seems a little circular.

    I understand it as a good PR strategy but, not something I would expect coming from one as confident as you in asserting his truth claims.

    First, you’ll be interested to know that I did a podcast for And I’m happy to engage any other atheists or agnostics. However, I am not pursuing this, because, unlike Hitchens’ God is Not Great, my book does not aim to show that atheism is false so much as to give an explanatory account of unbelief. And, since my account is in large part Scripturally derived, I suppose most atheists would not be interested in engaging me. Still, as I said, I’m willing to engage anyone on the issue.
