Lonley Atheists of the Global Village (Michael Novak)
Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, and Sam Harris have all written books promoting atheism and criticising Christianity and other theistic belief systems. Michael Novak has written an excellent critique of each of these books (The God Delusion, Breaking the Spell, and Letter to a Christian Nation, respectively). I haven’t read Harris’s or Dennett’s books, but I am most of the way through Dawkins’ God Delusion at the moment (a review to come shortly!). Novak has provided an accurate sense of Dawkins’ approach. Novak’s critique is definitely worth having a look at. You can read it here.
