CS Lewis versus Richard Dawkins and New Atheists

I just picked up Peter S. Williams book today, “CS Lewis versus the New Atheists.”  Its pretty decent.  I would give it a 9.2 out of 10.0  It focuses on 1) scientism, positivism, and verificationism and 2) naturalism’s (and thus atheism’s) failure to deal with critical aspects of our world like intentionality, reason, ethical absolutes, and truth.  It also contains an extensive list of weblinks to quality arguments on the topics Williams talks about (I wouldn’t be surprised if it included 150 to 200 links).  You can buy it here on Amazon.

Williams is quite good on discussing these issues–naturalism and scientism as they related to CS Lewis’ work as well as how these issues relate to the real world.

I think it makes a nice addition to other works by CS Lewis and/or Mere Apologetics by Alister McGrath.  McGrath’s book is a bit easier to wrap your head around, but both are generally pretty good in delivering quality argument on key topics.
