The Journey from Atheism to Belief in God

I've just finished a fascinating new book entitled There is a God: How the World's Most Notorious Atheist Changed His Mind by Antony Flew. If you have friend, a father, or perhaps a boss, who is a hardened atheist and you've tried sharing with them to no avail, then this new book is a great resource to put in their hand.

Antony Flew, a former Oxford professor and long time champion of atheism, shares with his readers how recent scientific discoveries have changed his mind. Antony Flew now believes God must exist. It is fascinating reading. Although he is not a Christian yet, he does believe that Christianity is the most viable of all of the world's religions and he even allows N.T. Wright (an Oxford New Testament scholar) to close off the book with a powerful case for Jesus' resurrection. (This alone reinforces my own belief in God!) Then in one last reflection to end the book, Flew says, "I am very much impressed with Bishop Wright's approach, which is absolutely fresh...It is absolutely wonderful, absolutely radical, and very powerful" (p. 213). These are astonishing words to hear Antony Flew saying and I believe insightful concerning what God is doing in his life. Pray for his conversion and salvation.
