Book Review: "Stealing From God: Why atheists need God to make their case" by Frank Turek

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Tyndale Publishers for the purpose of review.

It wouldn't make sense for anyone to deny the existence of eyes, but then use them to read a list of reasons why they don't exist. The very act would prove their existence. Frank Turek points out the same inconsistency of atheists in their arguments against the existence of God. The arguments atheists hold to disprove God's existence instead speak volumes in proof of His existence. Using the acrostic C.R.I.M.E.S., Turek exposes the inability of atheists to form a case against God without first "stealing" from God.

This type of book can often be difficult to read or follow because of the style and language. The author presents deep thought and logic in a very accessible manner. He has "moved the cookies to the lower shelf" for the benefit of readers like me. Turek writes with humor and a razor sharp wit without sacrificing substance. He never comes across as arrogant or bitter, but seems to write from genuine humility and care. I appreciate that he didn't simply debunk the arguments of atheists or make a case for God, but pressed on in stressing the evidence for the God of the Bible.

I would recommend this to any Christian reader who is wanting to be equipped to provide an answer for their faith. I would also recommend it to any friend or family member who is looking for answers to life's questions. Lastly, I would recommend it to any atheist or skeptic who has a genuine desire to learn truth.
