A Friendly Letter to Skeptics and Atheists
Author: David G. Myers
Description

A Friendly Letter to Skeptics and Atheists helps readers--both secular and religious--appreciate their
common ground. For those whose thinking has moved from the religious thesis to the skeptical antithesis
(or vice versa), Myers offers pointers to a science-respecting Christian synthesis. He shows how skeptics
and people of faith can share a commitment to reason, evidence, and critical thinking, while also
embracing a faith that supports human flourishing--by making sense of the universe, giving meaning to
life, connecting us in supportive communities, mandating altruism, and offering hope in the face of
adversity and death.
Reviews

"As a scientist, open-minded skeptic (who cheers on challenges to irrationalism), and a man of faith,
[Myers] seeks to transcend the skeptic/believer divide by suggesting how faith can be reasonable,
science-affirming, and humane."<br>--Skeptical Inquirer (January/February 2009)<br><br>"Reading
Myers will not set to rest all the incongruities or failures of Christianity; but it will demonstrate, in a
thoughtful and readable format, that God is good and that to follow in the steps of Jesus your soul will
become bigger, better and more gracious."<br>-- Youth Worker Journal<br><br>"The humility with which
Myers writes and the intelligence with which he composes his arguments could disarm the most jaded
cynic."<br>-- Worship Leader Magazine<br><br>"Believers and skeptics could learn much from each
other, and the author's willingness to build a bridge between two sometimes hostile territories is what
makes his work so welcome. Myers's psychological training enables him to grasp the human person in a
unique way, and he is able to introduce an intellectual element into the God debate."<br>--(Sept.)
