Does God Believe in Atheists?

Evangelical Press has just published what it is calling its 'Book of the year', a major treatment of atheism and agnosticism by Christian Ministries evangelist, John Blanchard. Entitled Does God believe in atheists? It traces the development of atheistic thinking from the 'Golden Age' of Greek philosophy to the present day. Here is an edited extract from the book's chapter on secular humanism.
