The problem that I have with Steve is that he doesn't actually refute any of Lewis's arguments. Many people here are saying that Mr. Shives is a great debater who is giving well thought out answers to the book's claims. Sorry, but I don't see it. Saying that you disagree with a point that Lewis makes, is not the same thing as answering that point. CS Lewis took time to set his reasons down on paper. Steve Shives should at least take a similar amount of time to refute those points one by one. As I said, it is not… Read more »

There is nothing wrong of course with an atheist, or anyone else for that matter, doing a critique on Christian literature. What I find puzzling, is that an atheist would actually want to spend time on something like this.

Describing morality as a set of laws is a very Judeo-Christian way of viewing things. By contrast, if you read Ancient Greek philosophy, they talk a lot less about following laws and a lot more about pursuing the good or living a good life. I can see the argument that if there's a law, there must be a lawgiver, but I don't see that if there's an objectively good way of life, there must be someone commanding you to have a good life or some superhuman being setting the standards for what that means.
