For a lot of people, the biggest question about God is not, surprisingly enough, whether He exists. Instead, it is about whether God is truly good. Dinesh D'Souza, in his debates with leading atheists, quickly realized that many of those debates revolved around the question of evil in this world-how God could create a world that allowed such suffering and evil. In What's So Great about God, Dinesh D'Souza takes these questions head-on: Does God act like a tyrant? Is God really responsible for the evil in this world? Why is there suffering in the world? For the first time ever, Dinesh D'Souza approaches this apologetic topic with historical and scientific proof and presents to the reader why God is truly worthy of our worship and love.

Once again, I am quite interested in Dinesh's style of writing and his take on defending God's presence.

As long as folks (including orthodox atheists) continue to pray for God's forgiveness from our own individual under fire "fox holes" the "God" debate will go on.
D'Souza presents unique and sincere discussion on his position that God-fearing Christianity, possibly alone among religions (including Atheism), addresses the controversy of the apparent benevolent/punishing "God contradictions" and is most worthwhile reading.
I also look forward to D'Souza's "Hillary's America" book and movie due to debut this July (2016) - if I over come exhaustion from my having to retrieve either media from their anticipated flights across the room.
Just got "13 Hours" - where is the Obama Administration being held accountable for this blatant OA created inhumanity?

I'm surprised that people who are CLEARLY atheists would take the time to, er, "read" this book...

“Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?”

and quoting Richard Dawkins:
“The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.”

I expect LEL to provide scientific proof that God is a myth.

Really? "A scientific proof . . . why God is truly worthy of our worship and love" ?! Let's get this straight: myth is myth, and science is science, and, like oil and water, they do not mix. D'Souza's magical thinking should not be confused with logic.
