Summary

From USA Today best-selling author Anthony DeStefano, an entertaining retort to atheism and its proponents, revealing the intellectual bankruptcy at atheism's core and equipping Christians to respond to its hollow arguments.

A witty and devastating takedown of the "new" atheist position, Inside the Atheist Mind debunks the theories of Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris, and others, revealing how inconsistent, illogical, and frankly ludicrous their conclusions truly are. Poking fun at atheists in a clever and intelligent way, Anthony DeStefano demonstrates just how full of holes the new atheism is and reveals that it is actually a "religion" of its own, complete with a creed, a set of commandments, a rigid moral code, and rewards and punishments. More than that, DeStefano exposes that atheism is itself a "superstition" of the worst kind.

Using irony and a healthy dose of playful sarcasm, Inside the Atheist Mind lampoons, teases, and deflates the atheist position, unmasking it for what it is - an empty, intellectually barren philosophy, devoid of any logic and common sense.

Informative and well thought out, essential

Superbly researched and excellent at exposing the massive holes in atheist arguments. Throws real light on those hellbent on the destruction of any belief in God. An absolute must have in this day and time to defend and explain the faith, whilst answering strongly claims made by supposed atheist “experts” and their ideologies

A reversed hitch clap (what goes around comes around)

This book was a deep insight into the rage of atheism. I always walked around as a Christian with the idea that I have to rationalize god or else it is silly to believe in him. This deep frustration has been lifted from my shoulders as I listened to this book bringing the darkness to the light. It is uncensored brutal honesty towards those who mock the religious. Don’t think that you will as much empowerment in your atheism once you finish the book even though it doesn’t disprove it or proves Christianity.

Hypocritical Ending

I agree with the majority of how today's Atheist act, like bullies, they are unable to open to all the positive acts of organized religions throughout human history. Yet the author says Athiest try to convert, but yet I thought this book was not to convince people how to think about God with their personal bias. DeStefano is totally taking a conversion stance of Christianity in the last few chapters, which is highly hypocritical. That is just a double-edged sword in my view, which he wants to make unavoidable. Conversion really takes "Free-Will" away, if you really think about it.
Myself, as a Spiritual Deist (Deism, a philosophical religion), I do believe in a higher power, just in a strong logical and reasonable understanding without dogma or superstition. Yes, I do understand that religious scripture should NEVER be taken literally, but metaphorically. So that said, I enjoyed the book.

Excellent and important

This was a funny, compelling, and truly important book. On top of the writing being very accessible, the thesis is hard to argue with. A great book, and one to truly ponder. Thank you to the author.

Straight Talk About Atheism

Overall very enjoyable. A bit crass at times but I get the intent of being unapologetic to an unapologetic atheist. His message is directed at a certain group of atheists so readers shouldn't assume all atheists act the way this group that he references. It'll take a few more read throughs to pick up on all the content given included what's between the lines but at least the author provides a lively reading of his own work.

Great Book

great book. This book won't give you arguments for the existence of God, it exposes the absurdity of atheism. This book goes over the BULLY tactics modern atheist use and the falsehoods they spew!

A Refreshing and Unapologetic Look at Atheism

I've read a number of books on Religion, Spirituality and Atheism, but this is a truly unique one. The author is honest in his introductory note: this not an attempt to prove the existence of God - there are other books for that. This is a comprehensive analysis of the New Atheists. It is brutally precise in citing historical facts and figures to explain their emptiness. The author is as direct as possible, showing the weaknesses of the position.

This edition as read by the author, and he does so perfectly. It is a smooth read. I have already recommended it.

Really great read

Great intellectual but light response to aggressive atheism. I appreciated the clear refutation if common statements about religion causing more harm than good. I also appreciated the way he exposed actual quotes from atheists like Sam Harris supporting the killing of religious people and disabled people systematically. Great read.

if your an atheist your going to hate this book.

Outstanding, I love when the author themself read their own book. It puts their personal emphasis and true emotional voice while reading - telling their story, If you are an atheist, a true atheist you are going to hate this book but read it anyway. If you are a Christian read this book to gain knowledge and wisdom along with understanding how the atheist world works and values well they don't value , But how they see thing's through their atheist mine. We christians are in a battle of the dark world. This book is a wonderful apologetics style book. Read or listen To help you understand how we must defend our faith to those that either just don't understand, turn a blind eye or are truly evil. Again very well written I highly recommend This book!
