I don’t generally recommend books I haven’t read, but in this case I’m happy to make an exception. Randal Rauser’s writing is always thought-provoking, relevant and worthwhile — and given today’s special, it’s now eminently affordable!
Today only (Wednesday, October 30), the e-version of Rauser’s book The Swedish Atheist, the Scuba Diver and Other Apologetic Rabbit Trails is available for free at Amazon.com, B&N and Christianbook.com.
And, if you miss today’s deal, the e-book will be 50% off for the month of November.
The Swedish Atheist is an imaginary dialog between a Christian and an atheist. In the words of Rutgers philosophy professor Dean Zimmerman:
Rauser’s dialogue brings the best tools of philosophical thinking within the reach of thoughtful believers and skeptics alike. His representative in the conversation knows when to stick to his guns, and when to admit to uncertainty and fallibility. His atheist counterpart is no straw man–he knows his Dawkins, Dennett and Hitchens. Rauser has the philosophical chops to cut through a lot of rhetorical nonsense, but he also has the intellectual honesty to face up to the genuine difficulties confronting his faith. This enjoyable book is a model of candid, winsome, thought-provoking apologetics.
I’ll certainly be taking advantage of this offer and will post my thoughts on the book after I’ve read it.
