A Shot of Faith to the Head - Mitch Stokes, PhD

The cover states, Be a Confident Believer in an age of Cranky Atheists.  The author states that the purpose of this book is to take a few of the most important intellectual weapons, tactics, and strategies from recent Christian philosophy and put them in your hands.  Some may be surprised to realize that philosophy and Christianity can be compatible.  The author has worked in the engineering field, and holds a PhD in philosophy from Notre Dame.
This is a well researched book with notes for each chapter, and an index for quick reference. The book is divided into parts that reflect atheist's so called points titled Belief in God Is Irrational, The art of self defense, Science has shown there is no God, and Evil and Suffering show there is no God.  In each section the author refutes each of these points will well thought out rebuttals, and at the end of each chapter a page titled For Your Arsenal, which reviews the points in the chapter.
I would recommend this book to all Christians, because sooner or later, if not already, you will encounter an atheist who has been using these points for a while, and we must know what to say. 
I have been provided with a complimentary copy of this book for review from Booksneeze.
