“It’s been said, ‘you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink.’ If there is no thirst, the horse will not drink.” The same is true for atheists. If there is no thirst for God, there will be no search for truth. Comfort assures us, however, that something more the evidence of creation must spur the atheist to head for the truth.
In this entertaining and enlightening new book, Pastor Ray Comfort, author of the million-selling The Atheist Test, “talks to the atheists” and reveals not just the weakness of their arguments but the solid foundation upon which the Christian stands. Based on conversations Comfort has had with atheists on his blog, this book is an effective approach to questions about the existence of God.
Comfort answers questions such as:
Few books take the time to address the atheist’s conscience. “You Can Lead an Atheist to Evidence, But You Can’t Make Him Think” not only gives empirical evidence for the existence of God, it shows atheists that they desperately need His forgiveness. Using a lively Q&A format, featuring actual questions from atheists sent to Pastor Comfort’s blog at Atheist Central, “You Can Lead An Atheist to Evidence, But You Can’t Make Him Think” shows that God’s existence can be proven, and that anyone can do it!
In his introduction Comfort comments that…
“To be an atheist is to play Russian roulette with all the chambers loaded…”
“An atheist just can’t win. Of course, he feels and acts like a big player, until the trigger is pulled. The issue isn’t the existence of God. If he is wrong and there is a Creator,then he was wrong. He gambled and he lost. No big deal. The real gamble is that there’s no Hell. That’s what makes the player sweat, just a little. ‘What if…?’”
This entire stream of conversations between angry, “fundamentalist” atheists and Ray Comfort is both witty, intelligent, and thought-provoking. Comfort responds with grace and boldness to each argument, proving without a doubt the existence of a Creator.
