Read "Sense and Goodness Without God: A Defense of Metaphysical Naturalism." I truly do feel that Christianity is an evil religion after reading this book.
Dr. Moreland is a gifted writer and has captured the subject very well. The book is particularly challenging to those that are not inclined towards math or philosophy. Therefore, it will not be particularly useful to those of casual interest. Perhaps that's OK.
This book, fashioned by J.P. Moreland of Biola University, has stood the test. While it appears as an introductory text; he avoids dumping down the information to the point of making the information irrelevant. In addition, he presents the information with enough technical language and argumentation as to make someone who has not encountered Philosophy of Religion studies before struggle enough to make them grow intellectually. This is the genius of the book, to accomplish this in a primer text.
He goes over most of the standard arguments in apologetics such as the design, cosmological, mind arguments and so forth. His chapter on the Resurrection of Jesus is outstanding and his chapter on Science and Christianity is good introductory fair by surveying the different positions.
I do think that he should have taken his morel relativism critique in his final four issues chapter devoted an entire chapter to this discussion and with the same depth of skill he used in the "design and cosmological" chapters, developed a chapter on relativism and the impact on the agreement from morals.
