Description

In There Is a God, one of the world's preeminent atheists discloses how his commitment to "follow the argument wherever it leads" led him to a belief in God as Creator. This is a compelling and refreshingly open-minded argument that will forever change the atheism debate.

Flew has published over thirty books, including God and Philosophy, The Presumption of Atheism, and How to Think Straight. He spent twenty years as professor of philosophy at the University of Keele and has also held positions at Oxford, the University of Aberdeen, and the University of Reading.

  • (3/5)
    The interesting point of the book is that he was convinced by the evidence of "intelligent design".
  • (3/5)
    A famous atheist, known for his philosophy changes his mind about there being a God. He changed his mind based on philosophy and science and the lack of facts of atheists trying to prove there isn't a God.
    Lots of Science, lots of philosophy and a little bit of religion thrown in. I enjoyed it.
  • (5/5)
    Wow! Clear cut explanation as to his change in belief!
  • (5/5)
    Excellent read. Some fresh perspectives and some older ones, but explained in an intelligent, comprehensive manner.

    If any book could change my mind ... it won't be this one. The prose is so dense in places I found myself skim reading, which meant I lost the thread of the author's arguments, and by the end didn't really care about it at all. Here's a classic passage. Try to read it without your eyes glazing over."The nerve of the distinction between the movings involved in an action and the motions that constitute necessitated behavior is that the latter behavior is physically necessitated, wheras the sense, the direction, and the character of actions as such are that, as a matter of logic, they necessarily cannot be physically necessitated (and as a matter of brute fact, they are not)."Huh?In fact, the best reason to get hold of this book is for the appendix at the back in which New Testament scholar N.T. Wright answers the following questions: 1) What grounds are there for claiming, from the texts, that Jesus is God Incarnate? and 2) What evidence is there for the resurrection of Christ?N.T. Wright's answers to these questions provide a neat and tidy summary of his general theological position, for which I happen to have a great deal of respect. So instead of wading through his books you could start right here. It is Wright who challenges me the most and I'd recommend this appendix for believers and non-believers alike.

    A fascinating account of the transformation of a lifelong atheist to accepting, on logical grounds, that there has to be a creator or god of all that is or that might be in the Cosmos. When neither side of the argument can prove their case objectively, that is scientifically, and when it is logically impossible to prove that something does not exist, any attempt by either side to convince the other is surely a waste of air-time.
