Read full description of the books:
This is Flew in his right mind (1966): a philosopher touring the major sites of religious thinking (Order and Design, Existence and Causality, Meaning and Morality, Religious Experience, Miracle and History, Authority and Faith), and finding out what went right and (more often) what it went wrong. Flew is right that philosophy of religion provides an ideal introduction to philosophy in general. He's right, too, that to accept - as I'm afraid most Americans today to - Karl Barth's notion that "belief cannot argue with unbelief; it can only preach to it," is to "recognize a cold war of the mind; in which there can be no room for genuine and fruitful dialogue between the enlightened and the unenlightened," which is also, ultimately, "to despair not only of reason but of human solidarity."

Read information about the authorAntony Garrard Newton Flew (11 February 1923 – 8 April 2010) was a British philosopher. Belonging to the analytic and evidentialist schools of thought, he was notable for his works on the philosophy of religion.
Flew was a strong advocate of atheism, arguing that one should presuppose atheism until empirical evidence of a God surfaces. He also criticised the idea of life after death, the free will defence to the problem of evil, and the meaningfulness of the concept of God. In 2003 he was one of the signers of the Humanist Manifesto. However, in 2004 he stated an allegiance to deism, more specifically a belief in the Aristotelian God, stating that in keeping his lifelong commitment to go where the evidence leads, he now believes in the existence of God.
He later wrote the book There is a God: How the World's Most Notorious Atheist Changed His Mind, with contributions from Roy Abraham Varghese. This book (and Flew's conversion itself) has been the subject of controversy, following an article in the New York Times magazine alleging that Flew had mentally declined, and that Varghese was the primary author. The matter remains contentious, with some commentators including PZ Myers and Richard Carrier supporting the allegations, and others, including Flew himself, opposing them.
