There have been a slough of books recommended here at Evangel in the last month of so — and to buy them all you’d need a small fortune. But what if there was a book recommended here which was worth a small fortune, but you could in fact download it and keep it for free?

My friends at the infamous blog Triablogue have done exactly this for the English-speaking Christian community by digitally publishing & distributing for free a response to the most recent volley from the likes of John Loftus, Ed Babinski and their likely crew of internet “New Atheists”. The atheist book is The Christian Delusion (a title which looks suspiciously familiar, as if it apes another more famous and more formidable book), and the Triablogguers have aptly named their rejoinder the Atheist Delisuion.

Peter Pike has this to say about the work of his fellow bloggers:

Each chapter of The Christian Delusion is thoroughly debunked by Hay’s philosophical and theological acumen, Engwer’s encyclopedic knowledge of history, Chan’s medical training, and/or Manata’s philosophical prowess. Contrary to the tactic The Christian Delusion used—to attack the weakest arguments put forth in the name of Christianity—the authors of The Infidel Delusion dismantled the strongest arguments atheists had to offer. Indeed, if there truly are “few works as effective” as The Christian Delusion, as Parsons claimed, then Triablogue shows atheism to be in a sad state indeed.
You can download your own copy here, and make a weekend out of it.

You can thank the Calvinists later.
