There Is A God
How the World's Most Notorious Atheist Changed His MindBook - 2007 | 1st ed
"A wave of modern atheists have taken center stage and brought the long-standing debate about the existence of God back into the headlines. Spearheaded by Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, and Christopher Hitchens, this "new atheism" has found a powerful place in today's culture wars. Although this movement has been billed as "new," the foundation of its argument is indebted to philosopher Antony Flew and his groundbreaking paper "Theology and Falsification," the most widely reprinted philosophical publication of the last half century. Flew built his highly acclaimed academic career publicly debunking the existence of God. But now the renowned philosopher has arrived at the opposite conclusion and officially joined the other side." "In There Is a God, Flew discloses his newfound belief in a God who created the universe. Flew earned his fame by arguing that one should presuppose atheism until evidence of a God surfaces. He now believes that such evidence exists. There Is a God reveals for the first time the scientific discoveries and philosophical arguments that turned him from a staunch atheist into a believer." "With refreshing openness to argument and an absence of the anger and hostility that have been hallmarks of the "new atheism," Flew shows how his commitment to following the argument wherever it leads resulted, to his own astonishment, in his conversion to belief in a creator God. Certain to be read and discussed for years to come, There Is a God will forever change the debate about the existence of God."--BOOK JACKET.
