Challenging Dan Barker's Brand of Atheism (Part 2)

Why Do You Believe?

A couple of episodes ago we began talking about the book “Answering the Music Man: Dan Barker’s Arguments Against Christianity” written by several of our SES alumni. The book is a response to Dan Barker, the co-president of the Freedom From Religion Foundation. Barker touts many of the typical, and shallow, talking points common to what has come to be known as the “new atheists." Today, we’ll be talking with three more authors of the book and their specific responses to Barker.

Challenging Dan Barker's Brand of Atheism (Part 1)

Why Do You Believe?

At our National Conference on Christian Apologetics, Dr. Richard Howe debated professing-Christian-music-minister-turned-atheist Dan Barker. Barker is the co-president of the Freedom From Religion Foundation. After the debate, two of our SES Ph.D. alumni decided to begin a book project to dive more deeply into answering the many claims and assertions Barker promoted at the debate. The result is a relatively new book entitled “Answering the Music Man: Dan Barker’s Arguments Against Christianity." We’ll be discussing the book with a few of the authors this week and next week.
