It's been too long since I've engaged in some hardcore Counter Apologetics, but I'm on vacation and I've had the time to do a lot of reading lately. This article is meant to be an in depth, but hopefully respectful critique of the Christian definition of faith by Tom Gilson.
There's been some back and forth on how the word faith is to be defined in light of Peter Boghossian's new book A Manual for Creating Atheists.
The primary antagonist I've read defending faith is Christian Apologist Tom Gilson who writes at thinkingchristian.net. To say the least, Tom has written rather extensively against the definitions of faith espoused by Boghossian, Loftus, Lindsay, and Coyne.
What's more is that I think he actually makes a few good points, including a few where I think I may agree with him over those four atheists whose work I admire greatly.
Now I still think Tom is wrong on the whole of it, and that's the focus of this post, but the devil is in the details.
