The Bible doesn't merely state the atheist's creed; it provides us with an assessment: "The fool has said in his heart, 'There is no God'" (Psalm 14:1). In his new book The Absurdity of Unbelief, Dr. Jeffrey Johnson ably demonstrates that the Scripture writer isn't hurling insults or engaging in ad hominem. Rather, as Johnson shows, the Bible is simply telling the truth. To reject the triune God of Scripture and to replace him with a non-biblical worldview is self-defeating.
How does Johnson defend his thesis (and biblical claim)? First, he argues that human beliefs are not neutral but are in certain ways biased and preconditioned. Next, Johnson proceeds, by means of reductio ad absurdum, to expose the irrationality of the world's major non-biblical philosophies and unbiblical religions. Finally, Johnson carefully sets forth the arguments and lays out the evidence for the veracity of Christianity, and he concludes with an earnest and humble appeal to receive the gospel of Jesus Christ, which alone can restore true meaning to the world and wherein is found true wisdom from God.
The Absurdity of Unbelief will challenge the unbeliever's skepticism and will confirm the believer's faith. I highly recommend it.
