Bertrand Russell was an exceptional thinker. Why I Am Not a Christian is a collection of essays about religion and morality. Some of his arguments are not too convincing. But others still give pause.
Years later, John Stott wrote a thoughtful (and I think, quite satisfying), rebuttal to Russell’s unbelief.
I believe we should not only read what we agree with, but what we staunchly disagree with, as well. That’s how we push and challenge our selves. And ultimately, that’s how we grow.
If you’re inclined to wonder about the logical and philosophical points of Christianity (or atheism), these are a solid jumping off point.
