David Myers Responds to New Atheists, Nicely

David Myers, a psychologist at Hope College and self-described "science-loving religious person," will add his voice to the theist-atheist debate in August with his new book A Friendly Letter to Skeptics and Atheists: Musings on Why God is Good and Faith Isn't Evil. Rave reviews are coming in for this little book (160 pages) from some familiar big names in the field, including Alister McGrath, Francis Collins, Jonathan Haidt, and Owen Gingerich.
"For those whose thinking has moved from the religious thesis to the skeptical antithesis (or vice versa), I offer some pointers to a science-respecting Christian synthesis," Myers writes in the preface, which, along with the first two chapters and a chapter called "God and Gays," is available online. "I aim to suggest to skeptical friends how someone might share their commitment to reason, evidence, and, yes, even skepticism while also embracing a faith that makes sense of the universe, gives meaning to life, connects us in supportive communities, mandates altruism, and offers hope in the face of adversity and death." —Heather Wax
