Is Atheism Dead? Free Audiobook Download by Eric Metaxas
Metaxas, a Greek Orthodox Christian and author of the New York Times best-selling book "Miracles," argues that although the term atheism was coined in 18th-century France, it wasn't until 1976 that it became popularized by American atheist philosopher Antony Flew. He further argues that the decline of atheism is a natural result of biblical Christianity's resurgence.

"God is dead," Nietzsche famously wrote. It's a claim that has been made time and again, to laugh at and to despair over, as has the belief in atheism. But lately, it seems as if both claims have taken on new life force. With atheism finding increasing numbers of adherents, it may look like there will soon be no one left who believes in God. "I am appalled that atheists think they're winning," Eric Metaxas writes in his new book "Is Atheism Dead?" Well, maybe not quite yet.
