"An unanswerable and frequently hilarious demolition of the shoddy thinking and historical illiteracy of the so-called New Atheists."-Michael Robbins, Commonweal -- Michael Robbins * Commonweal * "Hart has the gifts of a good advocate. He writes with clarity and force, and he drives his points home again and again. He exposes his opponents errors of fact or logic with ruthless precision."-Anthony Kenny, Times Literary Supplement "It is a taut and tart introduction to the ideas that drove the Christian Revolution, fired by righteous anger and with an arsenal of learning that explodes off the page."-Nick Mattiske, The Lutheran (Australian Lutheran Church) "A brilliant investigation of the current fad among intellectuals for atheism."-Contemporary Review "A provocative work, vigorous, humorous, erudite."-James R. A. Merrick, Scottish Bulletin on Evangelical Theory ". . . takes no prisoners in its response to fashionable criticisms of Christianity."-Dr Rowan Williams, The Archbishop of Canterbury, Church Times "Entertaining and challenging, this book brings us back to what Christmas is about."-Nick Baines, The Church Times (Christmas Books) "With impressive erudition and polemical panache, David Hart smites hip and thigh the peddlers of a 'new atheism' that recycles hoary arguments from the past. His grim assessment of our cultural moment challenges the hope that 'the Christian revolution' could happen again."-Richard John Neuhaus, former editor in chief of First Things "Provoked by and responding to the standard-bearers of 'the New Atheism,' this original and intellectually impressive work deftly demolishes their mythical account of 'the rise of modernity.' Hart argues instead that the genuinely humane values of modernity have their historic roots in Christianity."-Geoffrey Wainwright, Duke Divinity School "In this learned, provocative, and sophisticated book, Hart presents a frontal challenge to today's myopic caricature of the culture and religion that existed in previous centuries."-Robert Louis Wilken, University of Virginia "Surely Dawkins, Hitchens et al would never have dared put pen to paper had they known of the existence of David Bentley Hart. After this demolition-job all that is left for them to do is repent and rejoice at the discreditation of their erstwhile selves."-John Milbank, author of Radical Orthodoxy: A New Theology "A devastating dissection of the 'new atheism,' a timely reminder of the fact that 'no Christianity' would have meant 'no West,' and a rousing good read. David Hart is one of America's sharpest minds, and this is Hart in full, all guns firing and the band playing on the deck."-George Weigel, Distinguished Senior Fellow, Ethics and Public Policy Center, Washington
