Naked God

$16.99

Paperback

Is there a God? And perhaps more to the point, if there is a God, what real difference will it make to my life?

These are the most basic and universal of questions, and yet we don't usually take much time to think about them. In Naked God, former lawyer Martin Ayers provides an opportunity for the reader to do just that: to ask the awkward questions, to sift through the evidence, and to get to the truth about God.

Naked God is an ideal book to persuade a non-Christian of their need to become a Christian, and will strengthen the faith of those who are already believers.


"I think Martin has done a terrific job of clearing away unnecessary objections to the faith and then explaining what that faith really is and entails. The style is simple, warm and engaging. I also love that I can hear both the lawyer and the evangelist. The arguments are clear and concise and the call to accept Jesus as Lord and Saviour is genuine. I was amazed, actually, how such a short book could feel so comprehensive. I wish I had written it."
- John Dickson, Director, Centre for Public Christianity, Sydney, Australia

"Challenging, enjoyable and biblically faithful. I'm delighted that Naked God invites its readers to examine the naked truth behind their own beliefs, then moves on to a compelling and persuasive explanation of the person and work of Jesus Christ."
- Rico Tice, Associate Minister (Evangelism), All Souls Church, Langham Place, London, UK

"Naked God assumes no background knowledge but simply a willingness to think through the implications of different worldviews, especially the cul-de-sac that is the New Atheism. Martin Ayers asks us to take seriously the person of Jesus and the naked facts of his death and resurrection. The real value of this book is that I'd be happy to hand it to a friend who isn't a Christian but who's willing to think."
- Al Stewart, Chairman, Katoomba Christian Convention, Sydney, NSW, Australia

"I really like this book. Martin Ayers not only gives excellent answers to important apologetic questions but he also gives compelling reasons why the indifferent sceptic should think of asking them in the first place. He writes directly into the life and experience of a thinking unbeliever and commends Christ both by his attractive presentation of the gospel and his portrayal of the bleak consequences of an alternative naturalistic worldview. I am already thinking of people I could give it to."
- Vaughan Roberts, Rector, St Ebbe's Church, Oxford, UK

"A great introduction to give to a thinking friend. It will meet them where they are, challenge their worldview, and point them to Jesus. Accessible, readable, good enough to give away!"

Unconvincing
2 stars By Liz P, Oct 23 2012
Naked God, by Martin Ayers, is an evangelistic and apologetic book aimed at exposing the assumptions of naturalism and taking those assumptions to their logical conclusion, and offering God, and the person of Jesus, as an alternative.
Part One, Chapters 1-6,  describes the assumptions and beliefs of naturalism and takes these to their natural end.  Ayers paints a picture of a life that is purposeless and meaningless, when founded on naturalism.  He quotes from Richard Dawkins extensively when explaining the beliefs of naturalism.
Part Two, Chapters 7-11, examine the person of Jesus as revealed in the Scriptures, specifically the gospels.  He also examines common misconceptions about Jesus and refutes these, quoting from the Bible but also regularly from C.S. Lewis.
Part Three, Chapters 12-15, look at the implications of  beliving in Jesus and God.  It discusses common objections to becoming a Christian, and talks about what becoming a Christian actually means.
On the whole, I didn't enjoy the book.  I found that the arguments would not convince someone who genuinely held these misconceptions (particularly those in Part Three), although they would likely satisfy someone who was running through all the excuses they could think of as to why they shouldn't become a Christian.  I would also say that the level of the book would be suited to university students and professionals rather than those who were poorly educated.  I didn't find the book engaging and I would hesitate to recommend it to anyone I know.
