The New Evangelization in an Atheistic Age
by Paul O’Reilly, Ph.D.
Vice President, Thomas Aquinas College

Richard Dawkins’ bestseller, The God Delusion, has been described in media as “the most coherent and devastating indictment of religion” containing “lots of good, hard-hitting stuff about the imbecilities of religious fanatics and frauds of all stripes." Dr. Paul O’Reilly will expose fundamental errors about the relationship between science and faith portrayed in The God Delusion. He will focus on the Fathers and Doctors of the Church – especially Saints Augustine and Thomas Aquinas who anticipated today's atheists' contentions and provided a resounding rebuttal. While largely unknown in the current debate, they provide powerful arguments against the new atheism. This "don't miss" presentation is an invaluable tool to engage in the New Evangelization in this Year of Faith.
