The Twilight of Atheism (Alister McGrath)
Alister McGrath is a well-known speaker and author who is Professor of Historical Theology at Oxford. His book The Twilight of Atheism explores the nature of belief in the modern world and whether atheism is in decline. He considers the intriguing question of whether it is harder to be an unbeliever now than previously. McGrath presented the 2006 Smith Lecture in Sydney with the same title as his book, The Twilight of Atheism. It is a good summary of the main thesis of the book.
