Blurbs for My Anthology "Christianity in the Light of Science"

We're in the final copy-editing stage for this new anthology. Below are the blurbs to be put on the back cover.

This is the best compilation John Loftus has done to date and I have enjoyed reading his others. I truly couldn’t put it down. He has assembled leading authors to write essays in an easy to read manner that are well annotated. If you find a particular subject of interest in a couple of authors or more, check out their larger body of work. I highly recommended this book for those who want to delve deeper into why religion persists in our world and why it shouldn’t. --Karen L. Garst, PhD, editor of Women Beyond Belief: Discovering Life Without Religion and blogger at


In this indispensable volume, John Loftus and his colleagues demonstrate all the different ways in which science undermines and threatens religious belief. The only way you can rescue God from this book is if you force him to retreat so far that you might as well stop believing in him. I defy you to read this volume and still believe that religion and science shall ever meet. John Loftus will never receive the Templeton Prize, but he should. This collection alone will further our understanding of science and religion more than all the previous winners combined. —-Dr. Maarten Boudry, philosopher, Ghent University.


In this fascinating collection of essays by noted scholars from a wide range of fields, Loftus promises to expose the dog and pony show that is Christianity in a scientifically advanced world—and this series of cohesive and compelling treatises delivers on that promise. This absorbing book is a must read for minds open to critical thought about who we are, what we know, and where we came from as human beings. --Elicka Peterson Sparks, PhD, author of The Devil You Know: The Surprising Link between Conservative Christianity and Crime.


In this anthology, Loftus gathers a broad scholarly team that tests the claims of Christianity against the evidence. Within these pages is a rigorous challenge that will interest anyone still in the faith. --Brandon G. Withrow, PhD, author of Consider No Evil: Two Faith Traditions and the Problem of Academic Freedom in Religious Higher Education.
