    Is Religion Irrational?

    Author: Keith Ward
    With wit and style, veteran apologist Keith Ward explains why belief in God is the only rational choice

    If the New Atheists are to be believed, religious belief is not only dangerous and irrational, it is just plain stupid.

    With increasingly intolerant polemics the New Atheist dismiss the views of religious people and misconstrue them in the process. Author Keith Ward debunks the notion that rationality and intelligence are incompatible with belief in God, going through some of the main criticisms raised by the New Atheists (and their predecessors), for example: Does God cause evil? Is the universe intelligently designed? Is God free?

    This book is essential reading for anyone interested in rebutting the arguments against religious belief.
