Summary, etc.:
"In a literary showdown with the Four Horsemen of the New Atheism--Christopher Hitchens, Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, and Sam Harris--Metaxas neatly skewers them with their own swords. Along the way he presents breathtaking evidence from the fields of archaeology, nanoscience, and quantum physics that overwhelmingly confirms the accounts of creation in the ancient Hebrew scriptures. He also spotlights the stories of some of the best scientists of the last century--and former leading atheists--whose scholarship and intellectual honesty eventually led them to faith in the very creator they once assured the world did not exist." -- Provided by publisher.
