“‘People of faith are biased,’ we are told. This critique is tossed so often at those who express faith in a personal God that we forget that those who express faith in atheism and secularism are themselves guilty of bias. There is no evidence to support Dawkins’ or Harris’ loud proclamations that they have secured their belief via reason. In fact, the evidence shows the opposite. Their loud diatribes and definitive conclusions show a lack of reason, and True Reason points this out. Reasonable people will take this content seriously.”
“One of the key talking points of the New Atheists is that theirs is the side of reason and evidence. It is a powerful rhetorical device; after all, who would want to be on the side of irrationality and ignorance? But the contributors to this wide-ranging volume call their bluff, inverting the charge and arguing that it is not atheism but Christian theism that has reason and evidence on its side. Anyone who engages with these arguments thoughtfully will discover that it is surprisingly difficult to be an intellectually fulfilled atheist.”

“Very well done, an excellent response to Dawkins et al.”

“a splendid and timely book…. I thought all the chapters were first rate and that each contributed to the overall defense of the rationality of the Christian faith and the poverty of resources in Naturalism for accounting for the possibility of reason and science.”
