A recent Pew Research Center poll found that the number of atheists has doubled in the United States. Atheism is definitely in the rise.

Is God’s existence a matter of faith only? Is there a way we can come to a certain knowledge of God apart from the Bible or the Church’s teaching?

If you have friends or family who say they stopped believing in God, this is the interview to share with them. Philosopher and writer Dr. Edward Feser is the author of The Last Superstition, Aquinas, and other books of philosophy. This special episode of The Patrick Coffin Show, taped before a live audience at St.John the Baptist church in Costa Mesa, CA.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • The right questions to ask atheists
  • That there are strong reasons for believing in God apart from divine revelation
  • Science itself cannot disprove God
  • How to really listen to the atheist objection and provide a great answer in reply

Dr. Feser is the man that professor emeritus of Oxford, Dr. Richard Dawkins, does not want to debate. You can see why in this lively exchange. Feser is sharp, clear, funny, and engages the issues in a way that resonates with young people especially.
