In A Friendly Letter to Skeptics and Atheists, David Meyers is responding to atheists such Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, and Daniel Dennett as a respected and well-known scientist who writes from a broad and progressive Christian background with the extensive media contacts and experience needed to attract a sizable audience of skeptics, agnostics, and people of faith. Writing with a generous, non-polemical tone, Myers acknowledges the faults and failings of religion and the sins committed in its name and presents a well-reasoned case for the many benefits of faith--not just for individuals but for society at large.

David G. Myers is John Dirk Werkman Professor of Psychology at Hope College.
