Atheism is on the rise.  Skeptical thinkers like Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens and Sam Harris vigorously attach belief in God as irrational or, even worse, dangerous.  The so-called new Atheism has attracted millions of young people thanks to bestselling books such as The God Delusion and God Is Not Great.  How should Christians respond?  How can we turn the tide of secularism and draw people back to God?

In The Mystery of God:  Who God Is and Why He Matters, Bishop Robert Barron reached into our rich intellectual tradition to teach us how to respond.  Using the insights of St. Augustine, St. Thomas Aquinas, and Pope Benedict XVI, he uncovers a clear yet sophisticated understanding of what we mean by "God".
