ABOUT THE BOOK :  Addressing some of the more popular atheist sound bites about the Christian faith, The Atheist Who Didn’t Exist clears the space for a deeper and more honest discussion about the big questions of life.

Our culture now assumes that atheism is the default position—indeed, the only position for anyone who wishes to be seen as educated, contemporary, and urbane. In the media, atheism is usually portrayed as scientific and rational versus religion, which is seen as stuffy, outdated, and irrational.

Blending humor with serious thought, The Atheist Who Didn’t Exist will help readers to think a little deeper about the popular claims of atheism. Whether the reader is a Christian who desires to be able to start a conversation with secular friends or simply an agnostic dissatisfied with some of the arguments that pass for serious thought, Andy Bannister shows that when it comes to the most important questions of life, we need to move beyond simplistic sound bites.


Andy Bannister is the Canadian director of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries. Based in Toronto, Andy speaks frequently across Canada, the United States, and Europe, in settings ranging from universities to business forums to churches. Before joining RZIM, he had a background in youth work and earned a PhD in Qur anic Studies.

My thoughts:

I really enjoyed Andy’s style of writing. He is taking something that many of us Christians shy away from or get nervous about and puts a new spin on it. A new way to approach this topic.

This book can easily be read by an atheist or a Christian. Andy pokes a lot of holes in the atheists belief or non-belief 🙂

This isn’t really a book to read for deeper spiritual growth (which is usually what I am drawn to) but definitely a great book to read to beef up on your beliefs and see atheism in a new way and a way that we can approach with confidence when we are challenged in our beliefs.
