The Misguided Quest to Destroy Your Faith

A challenge has been issued on matters of faith and Becky Garrison meets it head on in this witty yet poignant answer to the Anti-God gurus Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, and Daniel Dennett.

Becky Garrison, religious satirist and senior contributing editor for The Wittenberg Door, is taking a stand. Where most Christians assume the character of the Cowardly Lion chanting, "I do believe, I do believe, I do believe," Garrison refuses to simply thrust tracts at these self-proclaimed infidels.

Instead, Garrison steels her pen and takes on the ungodly program of the New Atheists, skewering each argument with her sharp satiric wit. Garrison turns aside the atheists' assault without ignoring its real criticisms, namely, the church's inadequate response to war, evolution, medical ethics, social justice, and other important issues in the post-9/11 world.

- Publisher "Employing a whetted wit and unique spiritual perspective, Becky Garrison wields her irreverent and insightful satire to turn aside the assaults of pop atheists such as Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, and Daniel Dennett."--BOOK JACKET.

- Publisher Anti-God gurus Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, and Daniel Dennett have successfully seized the mass media spotlight by ridiculing people of faith and impugning any positive purpose for religion itself. Theirs is an armored-assault on belief, a crusade, that cannot go unchallenged. Becky Garrison, religious satirist and senior contributing editor for The Wittenberg Door, is taking a stand. Where most Christians assume the character of the Cowardly Lion chanting, "I do believe, I do believe, I do believe," Garrison refuses to impotently thrust tracts at these self-proclaimed infidels. Instead, Garrison steels her pen and takes to the lists against the ungodly program of the New Atheists, skewering each argument upon the poignard of her satiric wit. Her goal: to turn aside the atheists' assault without ignoring its real criticisms, namely, the church's inadequate response to war, evolution, medical ethics, social justice, and other important issues in the post-9/11 world.
