Review Title: See Through Smoke and Mirror Arguments (review of The Atheist Who Didn’t Exist by Andy Banister)
Reviewer: Janice S. Garey
***** 5 Stars
The author, Dr. Andy Banister, gives insight and background, interspersed with humor, regarding the variety of arguments used by atheists to put down people’s faith in God. The book fascinates with its subject and approach which although making the arguments of the atheists appear nonsensical, it never ridicules the atheists on a personal level.
Dr. Banister uses some fictionalized passages to add a level of absurdity to further illustrate methods of wrong thinking used in some of the arguments. The author’s use of the device is quite helpful and entertaining at the same time.
While reading, I found numerous passages that I wanted to share with others. A young man at a retail establishment saw me reading the book, and it opened up conversation. It is the right book for this time to capture the interest of seekers, agnostics, and even atheists who will want to see what is said about them. It’s a wonderful book to generate discussion among different age groups, cultures, and for any group trying to understand how to better reach out to those who have fallen under the influence of the new type of atheists.
I thank the author, publisher, and bookfun.org for giving me this book in exchange for an honest review. It is truly worth reading for its intellectual and spiritual value along with its wit.
