Just wanted to open this tread and ask for some good books that refute Atheism. Most of the books that I have read on this topic are philosophical, one of my favorites being The One and the Many: A Contemporary Thomistic Metaphysics by W. Norris Clakre, S.J. Another good one that I am working on finishing is titled, The Science before Science: A Guide to Thinking in the 21st Century by Anthony Rizzi

Other books I have but haven't read are:
Because God is Real by Peter Kreeft
New Proofs for the Existence of God by Robert J. Spitzer
Answering the New Atheism by Scott Hahn and Benjamin Wiker
God is no Delusion by Thomas Crean
Faith and Reason: Why Christianity Makes Sense by Austin G. Schmidt and Joseph A. Perkins
No One Sees God by Michael Novak
Reason to Believe: Why Faith Makes Sense by Richard Purtill

In my TBR pile is From Atheism to Catholicism by Kevin Vost

I'm currently browsing The God Theory by Bernard Haisch, an astrophysicist who has a Catholic background. His beliefs, as spelled out in this book, are certainly not Catholic, more New Age, but he may have something to add about the science end of the discussion.

I'm working my way through The Last Superstition: A Refutation of the New Atheism by Edward Feser. For me, it's fairly dense, but it may be an easy read for those with a better background in philosophy. I may try his book on Aquinas. Feser describes himself as Conservative Catholic.

I would jump on Scott Hahn's book. He always has something valuable to contribute.

Yeah glad you mentioned the Feser book. I was reading Fr. Z's blog and he was mentioning it and was wondering how it was. Thanks for your insight into that. God's Peace be with you+ And have a blessed New Year+

I take breaks from the heavier stuff, so I put Feser down and am mostly through Kevin Vost's book. It's fairly light and more anecdotal than I expected. It's more a tour of the author's who have been formative for him, but not in a formal case building way.

Thank you.

PS: Have you read Anthony Flew's book, There Is A God? I found it worthwhile. While it only travels to Theism, it's a good explanation of that part of the voyage. And N.T. Wright has an appendix.
