In the coming weeks, a number of bloggers will be posting reviews or interviews with me about my book, The Making of an Atheist. Some of these have already begun to appear. Joe Gorra interviews me at the EPS Blog, and Frank Turk has posted a very thoughtful review over at Evangel, the First Things blog. Also, Chris Reese has posted a two-part interview and my responses to some readers’ questions at Cloud of Witnesses. The entire schedule is below. These are all superb blogs, most of which feature content related to apologetics and/or issues related to faith and culture. I invite you to check them out.

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 CommonSenseAtheism.com:
http://commonsenseatheism.com/?p=7093. 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.
TeamPyro is the Oprah of the Reformosphere.
My copy arrived today and I already love it. There will be several blog posts on this one.
OK, it’s the 25th, and my review is up!
