Hi Everybody! @Interested_In_Book_Studies,
As you know, at the heart of RZIM is the philosophy ‘Answering the questioner, not just the question.’ This is so important because, while having head knowledge is necessary, knowing how to interact in a thoughtful manner may be the only way you have a chance to actually be heard.
So, at the invitation of @CarsonWeitnauer, I’m going to be leading a book discussion for the community on Andy Bannister’s book The Atheist Who Didn’t Exist: Or the Dreadful Consequences of Bad Arguments. I absolutely love this book for a multitude of reasons with a few being that it teaches how to recognize faulty arguments, gives the intellectual side of the response, shows how to give a winsome answer, and all of it seasoned with good British humor.
We’ll plan to begin the book a week from today (Monday, November 11, 2019). That should give you plenty of time to get a copy from your library or order it online. Amazon has both the hard copy and a kindle version through this link. Don’t worry if you aren’t able to get your copy before we begin because although it’s very informative and educational, it’s also an easy read (another plus) so you should be able to catch up quickly. In fact, the first time I read the book I did it from cover to cover over a 3-day weekend.
The plan is to read and discuss one chapter a week until we finish the book. And, maybe we’ll even be able to get Andy to comment on our discussion and answer a few questions for us!
Let me know in the replies below if you’re interested in doing this journey together
