Challenging Atheist Myths
This book is a more than useful contribution to the 'Dawkins Debate' and one which has helped me to understand more about the flawed arguments contained within The God Delusion.
The book comprises a series of ten letters to Dawkins, the first of which was published on Dawkins' own website, which counter the arguments in Dawkins' book chapter by chapter. Robertson is clearly well-read and marshals his arguments in a balanced and intellectually sound way. But this is not an inaccessible academic treatise; he writes clearly and understandably in such a way that most people will be able to grasp the arguments easily. He avoids the temptation to 'rubbish' Dawkins, just dismantles and challenges his arguments frankly and cohesively.
The final letter (to the reader) "Why Believe", contains a very useful and extensive reading list which most will never get to read in entirety but is helpful to have.
