"Reitan's execution is truly remarkable, maintaining both sympathy with the criticism of exclusive and closed-minded religious views while exposing fallacious and closed-minded attacks on human expression of religious belief and hope.… Highly recommended." (Choice Magazine)
"In the book you get two things for the price of one. 1- An intro to the philosophy of religion and 2- a fun, readable, and vigorous critical response to the New Atheists." (Tripp Fuller, Homebrewed Christianity)
"Reitan's resurrection of the phrase 'cultured despisers' underscores one of the most compelling purposes of his book, namely, to show that the arguments of today's articulate atheists are rehash of yesteryear's angst." (Religion Dispatches)"Clear, penetrating, and thought-provoking, Reitan's work is a bracing tonic for those in danger of being lulled into intellectual sleep by the strident claims of the 'new atheists'."
—Kenneth Miller, Brown University
"This is by far the best response to the 'new atheists' I know of -- well researched, subtle, full of powerful argument and yet accessible to all educated people."
—Thomas Sullivan, St. Thomas University
