After the New Atheist Debate, by Phil Ryan (Toronto: University of Toronto Press, 2014, ISBN 978-1-4426-2687-4) 196 pp. Softcover, $22.95.
Phil Ryan’s new book, After the New Atheist Debate, is an invitation to move past the vitriol and to open a dialogue between believers and nonbelievers. He is aware that the so-called New Atheists mostly are not saying anything new. However, since they are the closest things atheism has to household names, Ryan has, fairly, chosen them as most representative of the movement as a whole.
