About Magnificent Obsession:
David Robertson, author of The Dawkins Letters, was told by the leader of an atheist society: “Okay, I admit that you have destroyed my atheism, but what do you believe?” His answer was “I believe in and because of Jesus.” This book shows us why Jesus is the reason to believe. In response to the shout of God is not Great by the late Christopher Hitchens, David shows us why Jesus is God and is Great.

About Why I Am Not An Atheist:
Eleven different people travelled on eleven diverse paths to faith in Jesus Christ, and this book is the point where they meet. In Why I Am Not an Atheist, these travellers relate their stories and the reasons why they believe. What do a CEO, a psychiatrist, a journalist and a missionary have in common? This book is a good place to find out.

Contributors include Ravi Zacharias, Heather Tomlinson, David Robertson, Donald Bruce, Alistair Donald, Henk Drost, Elaine Duncan, Alex MacDonald, Pablo Martinez, Chris Sinkinson, and David Randall.

    The only real challenge is that they are non-Christians and will remain that way apart from the supernatural work of God on their hearts. Therefore, my only responsibility and confidence is that truth be proclaimed to the glory of God. My hope is that God the Spirit will call them effectually and regenerate them. Proclaiming the good news to non-Christians can be difficult if one is not prepared to give a defense for the hope that is within them. It is especially important for us to know and understand our Bibles (and studying theology and apologetics doesn’t hurt either). Furthermore, in this relativistic/postmodern era, it can take a lot of time and effort to show people the failure of their system of thought and the logical fallacies they hold to.

    I find it difficult at times to ‘stay on task’ and not necessarily address every question/objection as often they are just smokescreens to avoid the real issues of the Gospel

    The biggest challenge I face in presenting the gospel to non-Christians is getting past apathy or surface-level objections that are just brought up as red herrings.

    I face the challenge of my own ignorance, fears, and a lack of concern.

    I just keep on pointing to them what the Bible does say about their challenging question. I don’t do my opinion but His Word to prove the truth. Yes, it is challenging to deal with them. Never back down but continue to pray for them. I haven’t met many that does ask me challenging questions but a few. I am Bold as Lion and not shy to point them to Christ all the more.

    The biggest challenges would be in my lack of preparedness and lack of confidence.

    The biggest challenge that I’ve faced when evangelizing non-Christians has been getting past their awful stereotypes of Christians (for example, they believe that we’re arrogant, that we hate people who aren’t Christians, etc.) and sharing God’s love with them without going in the other direction and compromising on truth. It’s hard to convince lost people that they’re sinners and are on their way to hell, but that in telling them that, we’re trying to demonstrate love and concern. To lost sinners, “love” and “respect” always seems to translate into full acceptance of their sinful lifestyles, which – of course – is something that genuine Christians can never do.
