New Chapter by Dr. Howe “Dan Barker, ex-preacher and co-founder of the Freedom from Religion Foundation, travels widely, arguing in debates and speaking on his beliefs that Christianity is false, God does not exist, and that Bible is filled with errors and mythology. He has been touted as one of America’s leading atheists. Yet close examination of his arguments shows that Barker’s reasons for disbelief are poorly reasoned and miss the mark as they are aimed at a mistaken caricature of Christian theism. Answering the Music Man exposes Barker’s misunderstandings of Christianity and provides compelling answers to Barker’s arguments.” [from the back cover] Dr. Howe’s chapter is titled “A Thomistic Argument for God’s Existence.”
New Chapter by Dr. Howe “In The Morality Wars, contributors from religious and nonreligius beckgrounds debate the origin and nature of human goodness. While the subject is often addressed by prominent figures on both sides of the believer/atheist divide on public platforms and social media, participants seldom get the opportunity to explain their view points indepth. In addition to engaging the traditional conflict between science and religious faith over the content and nature of the moral conscience, the contributors also draw on and engage with figures who are often neglected when committed theologians and atheists debate each other, such as Sigmund Freud, Friedrich Nietzsche, David Hume, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, and Jacques Lacan.” [from the back cover.] Dr. Howe’s chapter is titled “Morality as Based on Natural Law.”
Two Chapters by Dr. Howe “Has Science Refuted Miracles and the Supernatural?” and “How Should Christians Think about Origins?”
