Perusing Amazon for new lesson material on this upcoming special week, I came across to very excellent reviews and responses to the book The Portable Atheist: Essential Readings for the Nonbeliever. Truly awesome.
You can find the original reviews and responses on Amazon, linked below.
One user had this to say:
If you haven’t found God yet then keep looking. Don’t Stop. Never Stop Looking.
There is a lot of evidence for God = The Bible. There is a lot of scientific evidence supporting his existence. I will start with Intelligent Design as it is supported by modern scientists and destroys the theory of evolution. Check for yourself. As they learn more about DNA then it becomes impossible to justify creation by accident. I recommend “The Case for a Creator” by Lee Strobel. He has both a book and DVD by this same name. See if you can dispute the evidence that DNA is extremely complex and couldn’t have been created accidentally. Nature also shows there is a God. There are a number of animals that defy evolution. There is a DVD series called “Incredible Creatures that defy Evolution”.
If you are trying to justify being a nonbeliever then look at the evidence that Christians espouse. I have only given you a couple of examples above.
Be Honest with yourself.
If you are looking for God then I have given you some suggestions above. If you want to be a nonbeliever or stay a nonbeliever then save your money – just stop looking – you won’t need to buy this book to stay a nonbeliever. It is not worth your hard earned money.

Your thirst for answers can only truly be quenched within the Bible. God’s inspired, infalliable, and inerrant Word holds answers to scientific questions throughout. Besides creation, the Bible explains truths from the sciences of genetics, isotasy, agriculture, astronomy, paleontology anatomy, medicine, and many more! All of them thousands of years before man discovered them on their own.
The Bible tells us that we were created to give praise to our Heavenly Father. Once you realize that man is wretched and sinful and that only through Christ can we escape God’s wrath on Judgement Day, then and only then can you be truly happy, secure in the knowledge of your eternal life.
So, what should a person do to get to Heaven? If you said, “There is no Heaven” or “You just have to live a good life”,YOU ARE WRONG. Stay with me and find out why. Let’s see if you’ve been a good person. Jesus said “Whoever looks with lust has committed adultery in their heart”. Have you ever lusted? Have you hated anyone(committed murder in your heart)? Have you made a god in your mind to suit yourself(idolatry)? Have you used God’s name in vain? Have you ever stolen anything regardless of value? If you have then you are a thief. If you have told just one lie, then you are a liar and CANNOT get into heaven. On Judgment Day you will be found guilty and end up in Hell forever. But that’s not God’s will. We broke his Law but because Jesus paid our fine by dying on the cross, God can forgive us. If you REPENTand trust the Savior, God will forgive your sins and grant you everlasting life. So confess your sins to God today, put your faith in Christ, and obey God. Read John 14:21
Well. What can you say but
