MBR: The Bookwatch, February 2017

Talking About God, the Universe, and Everything is both a comedy and a conversation and helps readers understand the basic differences between atheist and Christian perspectives by offering a discussion between the two. Arguments and contrasting perspectives represent the give-and-take of opinion and ideology between the two individuals using a dialogue format that captures these conversations.

While audio format would perfectly dramatize these encounters, the print book provides an excellent feel for the basic arguments and contentions of the two participants, and is recommended for any reader looking for a reasoned discussion.
