I was recently asked whether Christians should read books by people like Richard Dawkins or other atheists. It’s a good question. It’s wise to acquaint ourselves with people who hold views opposed to our own. At the same time, it might be ill-advised to read authors who devote their time, energy, and intellect to dismantling religious convictions when you don’t normally traffic in that field and don’t have the resources to understand their arguments or respond. Given that the answer is not a simple yes or no, allow me to offer my thoughts on this question.
