For a lot of people, the biggest question about God is not, surprisingly enough, whether He exists. Instead, it is about whether God is truly good. Dinesh D'Souza, in his debates with leading atheists, quickly realized that many of those debates revolved around the question of evil in this world--how God could create a world that allowed such suffering and evil.In "What's ...more

I think the author has done a lot of research and presents his ideas with logic and a pretty strong philosophical bent.

While I don't agree on every topic solution and avocation he asserts, I thought he did an adequate job of ...more

This book does a great job at showing how the existence of God is immune to Darwinian attack and in fact reason and science prove God or make his existence more of probability than not. It answers natural evil and human evil while still maintaining gods goodness
