​'It's Christmas time, mistletoe and wine. Children singing Christmas rhyme. Logs on the fire, gifts by the tree. Time to rejoice in the good that we see'.

Are We Wrong to have Rights

Christian Ministries evangelist John Blanchard has written a major treatment of the subjects of atheism and agnosticism. His intention is to help Christians cope with the rising tide of scepticism in today's society. The result is a 656-page hardback, Does God Believe in Atheists? which Evangelical Press has already called its 'Book of the…
