I am "reading" this book via CD (many CDs, as it turns out). It is a thorough refutation of atheist Richard Dawkins and his ilk.
A favorite point D'Souza makes so far is this: The very nature of "faith" *means* that we will doubt. If we *knew* with complete certainty, by all available empirical evidence that there was a God, then we would not *need* faith. In this, we share our doubt, our "not knowing" with agnostics, but, believers use faith to get us beyond where reason can go.
Lord, I believe; help thou my unbelief." Mark 9:24Believers and agnostics are climbing the same mountain, so to speak.
Agnostics reach a certain point, and say, "I don't know, therefore, I cannot go on." They put down their pack and give up.
Believers use faith to continue the climb to the top.
