Synopsis: Addressing some of the more popular atheist sound bites about the Christian faith, The Atheist Who Didn't Exist clears the space for a deeper and more honest discussion about the big questions of life.

Our culture now assumes that atheism is the default position indeed, the only position for anyone who wishes to be seen as educated, contemporary, and urbane. In the media, atheism is usually portrayed as scientific and rational versus religion, which is seen as stuffy, outdated, and irrational.

Blending humor with serious thought, The Atheist Who Didn't Exist will help readers to think a little deeper about the popular claims of atheism. Whether the reader is a Christian who desires to be able to start a conversation with secular friends or simply an agnostic dissatisfied with some of the arguments that pass for serious thought, Andy Bannister shows that when it comes to the most important questions of life, we need to move beyond simplistic sound bites.

Critique: A thoughtful and thought-provoking Christian response to the arguments of atheism, The Atheist Who Didn't Exist presents the case for belief in God with wit, style, and verve. Author Andy Bannister does not disparage or condemn atheism and its adherents; instead, he rationally challenges the fundamental precepts of unbelief. Topics covered include why life without God is meaningless; why God is really needed to be good; why faith in God does not mean one is insane; why science cannot explain the entirety of reality; and much more. The Atheist Who Didn't Exist is highly recommended for readers of all religions.
