If you must send a thief to catch a thief, then you need to send an atheist (former) to catch an atheist (current).

“If you must send a thief to catch a thief, then you need to send an atheist (former) to catch an atheist (current).”

So says author Dennis Garvin, whose new book “Case Files of an Angel” brings readers a collection of entertaining yet thought-provoking short stories that look at faith, religion, and the good and bad of humanity.

Informed by his past as a self-described ‘predatory atheist’ until the age of 38, Garvin deconstructs the atheist argument from both a philosophical and scientific standpoint, even challenging “single-issue agnostics” on the views he once shared.

“I used to be the person who Christian parents hoped their child would never meet,” said Garvin. “I reveled in dismantling people’s spiritual constructs. I eventually came to God because of emptiness, but ultimately it was my reassessment of modern science that convinced me that all my prior suppositions were dead wrong.”

“Case Files of an Angel” doesn’t shy away from modern-day issues such as homosexuality, judgmentalism, hypocrisy, abortion, and why bad things happen to good people, instead equipping believers with responses to atheists and calling them to defend – and apply - what they know is true.

About the author
Dennis Garvin is a physician, husband, father, and grandfather. Most importantly, he is a lately arrived Christian, coming to the Lord at age 38. He lives in Roanoke, Virginia with his wife, Nancy. Children and grandchildren live nearby.

The author was a committed atheist until age 38 when, with the Lord's help, he got rid of the blinders in front of his eyes and found that science, surprisingly, supported God, the Bible, and the mission of Christ. He has studied quantum physics and Einstein's theories. He applies those features of these disciplines that are generally accepted and applies their implications to the Christian faith.
