One nation without God? : the battle for Christianity in an age of unbelief by David Aikman( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Christianity in America is under siege. From litigation over coaches starting games with prayer to expulsion from college for refusing to endorse beliefs at odds with the Christian faith, hardly a week goes by without news of the declining influence that Christianity has in the public square. Can Christianity in this country survive the advances of secularists and remain influential in our culture? And if a new spiritual awakening is possible, what form will it take? Supported by an astonishing parade of concrete examples and direct quotes from reporters, judges, bloggers, and influencers, David Aikman turns his journalist's eye on the rise of hostility toward Christian expression in America and the alarming decline of orthodox belief among those who call themselves Christians. He explores the inspiring history of Christianity in America, the powerful cultural influences that have weakened the church, and the bright spots of hope he sees across the country, suggesting possible ways Christian influence in America might be refined and revived. Pastors, culture-watchers, and anyone concerned about the state of the church in America will find this a fascinating and eye-opening read."--Publisher's description
The delusion of disbelief : why the new atheism is a threat to your life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness by David Aikman( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and Chinese and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A great assault upon faith has been launched in the last several years by an influx of bestselling books attacking religious belief. While denunciations of faith are not new, what is notable about these books is their contention that belief in God is not only deluded, but dangerous to society. Now, former Time senior correspondent and bestselling author David Aikman offers this spirited, articulate response to the four writers at the forefront of today's anti-faith movement: Sam Harris, Daniel Dennett, Richard Dawkins, and Christopher Hitchens. Aikman examines and refutes the arguments of these "evangelists of atheism," skillfully exposing their errors and inconsistencies. He convincingly argues that, in fact, it is atheism that poses the biggest threat to society. In making this case he explains the apparent motivations of atheists, encourages Christians to look closely at what atheists believe, and highlights the social problems that atheism has caused throughout the world. - Publisher

In the West, Islam is often oversimplified-to the detriment of better understanding this complex religion and the diverse interpretations inspired by its tenets. The Aspen Institute and Bill Moyers brought together eight journalists and scholars from the U.S., Pakistan, France, Iraq, Turkey, India, and Britain to join in a conversation about the history and motives of the states too easily grouped under the heading "Islamic nations." The panelists identify and explore the fulcrum of the conflict: increasing tension between the growth of religious expression in the region and the pressures of modernity from the West

The mirage of peace : understanding the never-ending conflict in the Middle East by David Aikman( Book )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Morning headlines announce renewed violence and fresh calls for peace negotiations, while pundits on talk radio and cable TV shout conflicting opinions at anyone who will listen. Between perplexing contradictions and inflammatory rhetoric, it is often difficult to find out what's really going on in the Middle East. Former TIME magazine Jerusalem bureau chief David Aikman, who has spent decades reporting on Mid-East issues, takes a sober, balanced look at a region aflame. He brings a journalist's mind and a believer's heart to his exploration of the political and religious factors in play, and goes beyond the media's chronic oversimplification to carefully examine recent history and the leaders who have made that history. Aikman turns a critical eye on the policies of the region's prime players, resorting neither to blind pro-Israeli sentiment nor to reactionary pro-Palestinian bias. He challenges fellow Christians to a similar approach to the Middle East: respect, reason, and love, rather than unqualified tolerance on the one hand or religious crusading on the other. Discover the truth behind the headlines: God's restoring hand is at work in a region of the world torn apart by centuries of strife
