Helping People to Think Critically about Their Religious Beliefs

In 50 Voices of Disbelief: Why We Are Atheists. Wiley-Blackwell (2009)
In the debate volume, ’Knowledge of God’, co-authored with Alvin Plantinga, I argued that there is an inductively sound version of the argument from evil, and recently, several popular books criticizing religious belief have appeared, often focusing on that issue of the existence of God. In the present essay I argue, however, that to help ordinary people think more critically about religious beliefs, it is better to focus on beliefs associated with specific religions, such as Christianity. I then go on to look briefly at Jesus, and I offer reasons for concluding that Jesus was neither wise nor morally admirable
