Before you read this there are some things you need to know; I am not on commission from Krish, nor am I a personal friend of his. I've met him a couple of times and, even though I now live in Liverpool, still believe he supports the wrong football team. 

When you see this book at your favourite book store or online seller, buy it! Just buy it! Krish nails the discussion between those with faith and those without incredibly well.

The book is well researched, with Krish bringing his experience from his diverse ministry, sharing stories and showing that drawing battle lines between atheists and Christians does more harm than good. Each of the short chapters takes a preconception about Christians and atheists and picks it apart. Looking at the four 'C's (proof Krish is a Baptist preacher, surely?) of Collision, Collusion, Contention and Collaboration he pulls no punches to find a way through the maze to a place of walking together. 

So buy this book. It will challenge you, and change your perceptions on the atheist approach to life - and maybe even bring some of our prejudices to the surface. It would be a great read for small groups (Krish kindly throws some questions at you at the end of each chapter), especially if that group has people on their own journey toward faith. 

Hopefully Krish has more gems like this locked away in that Liverpool-supporting brain of his. 


Keith is the minister at Maghull Baptist Church, north of Liverpool
