Amazon's #1 Atheist Book is Christian

The 200th birthday of Charles Darwin may have grabbed the headlines yesterday, but it was a new book by a Christian that stole the show. You Can Lead an Atheist to Evidence but You Can't Make Him Think (WND Books, hardcover, ISBN 978-1935071068) by TV personality Ray Comfort soared to the top of the Amazon sales charts during its first day of release.

Atheism, once confined to the margins of civilized debate, has grown militant and mocking - often characterizing Christianity as foolish, dangerous and evil. Nowhere is atheism's unprecedented recognition more evident than in yesterday's celebration of "Darwin Day," with 600 events held worldwide to honor Darwin's bicentennial birthday and the mainstream media lauding him like a saint. The NY Times proclaimed it was "A Bad Day for Darwin Haters," and an atheist foundation prepared for the event by erecting billboards across America with messages like "Imagine no Religion" and "Praise Darwin: Evolve Beyond Belief."

But apparently God still has a loyal following, too. Comfort's book debuted in the top 50 overall on Amazon and climbed to the #1 ranking in the "Spirituality" category. The book also checked in at #1 in the "Apologetics" category, and ironically it claimed the top ranking in "Atheism," as well, dethroning Richard Dawkins from the top spot.

"Ray Comfort has once again laid hold of the greatest power on earth, the power of the Gospel," proclaims author and theologian Dr. R.C. Sproul, Jr.

"You don't have to shut off your brain to have faith -- and Ray Comfort proves it," adds Joseph Farah, the CEO and editor-in-chief of WorldNetDaily, the parent company of WND Books. "He's taking on those who deny God and Creation, and he's making them look like the monkeys from whom we supposedly descended."

About the Author:

Ray Comfort is a leader in the evangelical Christian community. The head of Living Waters ministry, he is the author of more than 60 books, including The Atheist Bible and Evolution: The Fairy Tale for Grownups. Comfort co-hosts the award-winning television program "The Way of the Master" with Kirk Cameron, which airs in 70 countries.
