The Dawkins LettersAuthor(s): David Robertson

When Richard Dawkins published ‘The God Delusion’, David Robertson wanted there to be an intelligent Christian response. After some ill thought through interventions in the media it was obvious that no one was really going to answer the real issues so David Robertson wrote an open letter to Richard Dawkins on his church website. This has found its way into Richard Dawkins’ website, where it generated the largest response of any posting up to that time. Since then it has been the source of continued discussion – being a critical part of the largest discussion since that time as his book was officially reviewed on the website.
The ferocity of the responses and the shallowness of the thinking that it exhibited, spurred David to write this book. Christians need to know where Dawkins is weak and we need to explain things better! It draws upon David’s experience as a debater, letter writer, pastor and author.
This is a very honest book. It agrees with Dawkins where appropriate but also does not hesitate to point out where some of his thinking does not hold together – It is written in a gentle spirit of enquiry.

David Robertson is pastor of St Peter’s Free Church of Scotland, Dundee.

“The content is excellent. It’s a fun, engaging read that seeks to be as charitable as possible (with an obviously virulent opponent) while not shrinking back from pointing out and exposing the fallacious, emotional, and often-childish arguments constantly employed by Dawkins.”
Ligon Duncan ~ Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Jackson, Mississippi

Note from the author: The poster, ‘richarddawkins.net’ (is this an official view?) accuses me of lying and gives the example of the quotes on the cover of the book having been made up. From a Christian perspective this accusation of lying by either myself or CFP is very serious. Lying for Jesus is obviously self contradictory and wrong. The example that the poster gives is just wrong. All the quotes came from the Dawkins website, were seen by many people, and I have copies of them all. However over 300 posts were removed from that particular thread – including many of my own posts and all the ones referred to in the book. Perhaps it was just a coincidence but whatever the case those quotes did exist. If the poster is writing on behalf of richarddawkins.net, they know this and therefore are themselves not telling the truth. It is not the first time that a lie is told in order to accuse others of lying. It is very strange that richarddawkins.net are so keen to accuse me of lying, it indicates a certain level of desperation. They are struggling to answer ‘The Dawkins Letters’ and so have to revert to attacking the author.

“The shortest, the cheapest and in some ways the sharpest book is The Dawkins Letters…clever, humourous and right to the point.”
Ron Ferguson, Life & Work, Church of Scotland magazine

“This book is a refreshing, excellent read…I wouldn’t hesitate to pass this book on to a non-Christian, atheistically-persuaded friend.”
Hannah Wooley, Evangelical Magazine, Evangelical Movement of Wales

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 exten

Baxter was one of the most influential of the Puritans. He recognised the value of writing about 170, which have sold in tens of millions since.
The amazing thing is that whilst he was such a prolific auhtor he also exercised an exemplary pastoral ministry, preached to Oliver Cromwell and Chalres II, and was hounded by the authorities.
Baxter was eventually imprisoned by the notorious ‘bloody’ judge Jeffreys whom Baxter obviously exasperated “I see the rogue in your face” said Jeffreys during the trial, “I was not aware my face was so true a mirror” shot back Baxter.
During his pastorate at Kidderminster in England he and one assistant, were catechising 800 hundred families per year by taking them in groups of 14 or 15 families on Mondays and Tuesdays. On Thursdays, Baxter acted as an informal judge, settling forms of conscience. The effect on the community was such that ‘the jails in Kidderminster were empty’ at this time – yet he considered all this as secondary to his writing.
Baxter’s autobiography is fascinating because you can read the thoughts behind his plans, actions and concerns. Not only do you get an insight into the Puritan mind but also a survey of the society.


The Life of God in the Soul of the Church The Root and Fruit of Spiritual FellowshipAuthor(s): Thabiti Anyabwile

In this transformational book, trusted pastor Thabiti Anyabwile repositions our thinking about spiritual fellowship. Extending the concept of Divine life presented in Henry Scougal’s classic The Life of God in the Soul of Man, Anyabwile contends that union with Christ is not individualistic, but is discerned in the soul of the local church. This vision of spiritual fellowship is not centred on external activities and programs, but on our shared life in Christ, as we share one another’s sufferings, use our spiritual gifts for the good of the body, partner in spreading the gospel and grow spiritually together.
The Life of God in the Soul of the Church is experienced personally by believing the truth and shared relationally in the church which leads to great joy and holiness.


Pastor Hsi A Struggle for Chinese ChristianityAuthor(s): Geraldine Taylor
Publisher: Christian Focus Publications
Price: $2.99       Buy Now!

Here is an amazing story about a man whose life made such a great impact for God. The Bible is filled with stories of God’s work in the lives of ordinary men and women who did extraordinary things for the Lord. These stories were written not only to give us the truth but also to inspire us to trust the Lord. Pastor Hsi experienced danger, adventure, persecution and great power to heal the sick. But what marked his life the most was not the great things he did for God but his deep and profound awareness of his dependence upon God. This book will challenge you to follow the example of this man. He saw the sovereign in-breaking of God, time and time again yet did not allow it to puff him into pride or arrogance.

His simple childlike faith led him to take the New Testament at face value: he put into practise whatever he read. He fasted, he prayed, he laid hands on the sick and cast out demons.
The reality of these experiences should compel us to search our hearts again and ask if we are availing ourselves of the authority that has been given to us. If you dare to be changed read on!

Style or Substance The Nature of True Christian MinistryAuthor(s): William Taylor & David Dargue
Publisher: Christian Focus Publications

In every age, Christians experience pressure to embrace contemporary culture. In Corinth, the church had been infiltrated by some who had grown weary of the message of the cross: whose boast was in outward appearance. In 2 Corinthians 2-7,Paul writes into this setting, urging the Corinthians then, and us today, to embrace the ‘weak’ ministry of Gospel proclamation, to partner with ‘weak’ Christians, and to boast in ‘weak’ ministers. It is in this weakness that God’s power is exhibited. Nothing could be more opposite to our celebrity culture.


David Brainerd A Flame for GodAuthor(s): Vance Christie

“…I hardly ever so longed to live to God and to be altogether devoted to Him; I wanted to wear out my life in his service and for his glory …” David Brainerd

Introduction by John Macarthur. David Brainerd was devoted to live for his Lord. He lived a short life but in his four years as a missionary he was blessed with a period of revival amongst the Indians to whom he had been ministering. By considering the life of Brainerd this book will be of tremendous spiritual benefit to you as you read of a young man plagued with depression and yet made so effective under God.

Vance Christie is a pastor and author best known for vivid retelling of missionary stories. He lives in Aurora, Nebraska and has previously written for the ‘Heroes of the Faith’ series.

“The poor man was sick, and his devotion to Christ and his self-sacrificial labours among indigenous Americans stand as a testimony to what God can do through weak and damaged people. And the story is not by any means all bleak; Brainerd certainly knew times of real closeness to God, and saw touches of revival in his ministry.”
Evangelicals Now

“Vance Christie has given us a thorough, engaging, meticulously documented but wonderfully readable chronicle of the life of David Brainerd. Christie makes Brainerd live and breathe for the twenty-first century reader in a vivid, colorful account of the young man’s heart, mind, and work. This is a splendid volume, full of insight into what drove Brainerd to give his life in the Lord’s service—despite several obstacles that would seem insurmountable to the typical person today.”
John MacArthur ~ Pastor, Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California
