'Illogical Atheism.' A Comprehensive Response to the Contemporary Freethinker from a Lapsed Agnostic

David Bentley Hart says that the new atheism has "now proved itself to be so intellectually and morally trivial that it has to be classified as just a form of light entertainment."

The philosopher Alvin Plantinga refers to Richard Dawkins and Peter Atkins as “dancing on the lunatic fringe” and "in terms of intellectual competence, the new atheists are certainly inferior to the ‘old atheists’ – Bertrand Russell and John Mackie come to mind. They are also inferior to many other contemporary but less strident atheists – Thomas Nagel, Michael Tooley, and William Rowe, for example. We may perhaps hope that the new atheists are but a temporary blemish on the face of serious conversation in this crucial area" Source: Where the Conflict Really Lies: Science, Religion and Naturalism.

The book by Bo Jinn, Illogical Atheism: A Comprehensive Response to the Contemporary Freethinker from a Lapsed Agnostic (presently, Kindle only) gives a wide-ranging response to the new atheists in a style that is fluent and to the point.

His book is well written, very comprehensive and his points are logically structured in the form of premises and very well argued. 

I have read the book twice and loved it. Highly recommended!
