“Conversations with My Friend the Atheist”: an insightful and thought-provoking book on the importance of understanding the Atheist viewpoint as a Christian. “Conversations with My Friend the Atheist” is the creation of published author, Richard Cannon.
Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Richard Cannon’s new book is a thought-provoking and insightful examination of why Christians should care about what Atheists believe.
It is easy to discover what Atheists say about Christianity and Christians. Pick up a book by any modern Atheist writer, read a few random pages, and the reader will have a sampling of the criticisms Atheists have regarding religion and people of faith. A natural first response is the desire to set the record straight, but a person responding in this way will quickly find themselves going in circles. From the Christian’s perspective, it serves no useful purpose when Christians engage Atheists to attempt to set the record straight.
Atheism is a worldview, or a way of seeing the world. Just as the Christian sees their Christian faith as reasonable and rational, the Atheist has the same view of what they believe to be true. Atheists vary in their definition of what it means to be an Atheist. There are, however, common themes found in the beliefs of people identifying themselves as Atheists. It is common, for example, to find people identifying themselves as Atheists to believe the natural world is all there is. This, of course, excludes the supernatural and since God operates outside of nature, God is supernatural and is therefore eliminated in the thinking of Atheism.
How should the Christian respond when Atheists challenge Christian beliefs? The Christian cannot respond effectively unless the Christian understands what the Atheists believe, and why the Atheists believe as they do. The apostle Paul tells Christian’s to be ambassadors. Ambassadors need to understand the world in which they serve. Therefore, Christians should care about what Atheists believe.
