Is Atheism Dead?

Listen to a sample

What to expect

Is Atheism Dead? is an entertaining, impressively wide-ranging, and decidedly provocative answer to that famous 1966 Time cover that itself provocatively asked “Is God Dead?” In a voice that is by turns witty, muscular, and poetic, Metaxas intentionally echoes C. S. Lewis and G. K. Chesterton in cheerfully and logically making his astonishing case, along the way presenting breathtaking—and often withering—new evidence and arguments against the idea of a Creatorless universe. Taken all together, he shows atheism not merely to be implausible and intellectually sloppy, but now demonstrably ridiculous. Perhaps the only unanswered question on the subject is why we couldn’t see this sooner, and how embarrassed we should be about it.

Critics Review

  • “When Eric Metaxas comes out with a new book, I have a problem: I know I will have to read it. I have read all his books—because I learn an immense amount from them and because they are difficult to put down. This latest book features Metaxas versus atheism. It’s not a fair fight. Read Is Atheism Dead? and you’ll understand why.”

    Dennis Prager, nationally syndicated radio talk show host, founder of Prager University, and New York Times bestselling author
  • Is Atheism Dead? displays the wonders of the universe, the chemistry of life, the vast archaeological evidence, and the thoughts and writings of great thinkers—Yet another all-engaging Metaxas book.”

    James M. Tour, PhD, professor of chemistry, computer science, materials science, and nanoengineering at Rice University
  • “A beautifully written, highly readable compendium of scientific, archaeological, and historical evidence…Highly recommended for anyone wrestling with the big questions!”

    Stephen C. Meyer, PhD, director of the Center for Science and Culture at the Discovery Institute and New York Times bestselling author
  • “With great oratorical skill and irrepressible humor, Metaxas engages lay readers with the story of how recent discoveries have made atheism scientifically, historically, and philosophically untenable.”

    Hugh Ross, PhD, astrophysicist and founder and president of Reasons to Believe
