Against All Gods: What’s Right and Wrong about the New Atheism, by Phillip Johnson and John Reynolds ???
Phillip Johnson is most noted for the book Darwin on Trial and the start of the Intelligent Design movement. He quit writing for a few years owing to several strokes, and now has produced a book jointly with Reynolds regarding new movements in the community of atheism. In particular, Johnson makes note of the new militant atheism, not trying to live peaceably with people of faith, but rather, viciously opposing Christians and those of all religious creeds or beliefs. Johnson writes in a conversational style for the first five chapters of the book. After Johnson, Reynolds offer reflections on how atheism has not given classical writing a fair shake, and how atheism misses the bigger point in the realm of education and aesthetics. I didn’t find his statements to contribute much to Johnson’s comments. This is not a book that proves valuable new insights. It does offer a glimpse into Johnson’s thinking as to the new challenges of the Christian community against its detractors.

    It is good to see that Phil Johnson is back and writing about something other than Darwinism. He clerked for Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren (the justice who was complicit in the JFK coverup) and is a law professor at Berkeley. Phil’s specialty in law is in analyzing the logic of arguments. This suits him well for Christian apologetics. I am glad to see that he is spreading out from his anti-Darwinian crusade to become a Christian presenting apologia.
