God Reconsidered

Searching for Truth in the Battle Between Atheism and Religion

by Scott Smith

This highly-praised book shares one journalist's efforts to apply the tools of his trade to sort through the innumerable competing claims of traditional religions and their atheist critics. In each chapter, he looks at an assertion by advocates of a particular philosophy to see whether logic, common sense, experience, and research can lead on to a point of view about it's validity. The chapters build to conclusions at the end that will surprise most people, regardless of their own viewpoints. One critic said that once he started reading, he couldn't put the book down.
