Responses to the New Atheism
Their books have shown up on best-seller lists for months, with attention-grabbing titles like The God Delusion and How Religion Poisons Everything. As they see it, God and religion are not only useless, they are downright evil—the root cause of much of man's suffering and a tired-out world view that has been around for centuries. Daniel Dennett, Christopher Hitchens, Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, these are the "new atheists" whose words and ideas have spawned numerous articles, fierce debates and ardent soul-searches.

Here explorefaith has gathered a few responses to the new atheism, in both text and audio, from people of both faith and science. They are among the many believers who are speaking out in books, in sermons and on the internet, claiming their faith and refusing to let the new atheism pigeon-hole God.

The following responses differ in their approach, their understandings and their conclusions. But despite the differences, they all reflect a common Truth: That God is beyond any human explanation, and that faith works in ways that we experience, but may never understand.
