Publisher's Summary

Francis Spufford's Unapologetic is a wonderfully pugnacious defense of Christianity. Refuting critics such as Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, and the "new atheist" crowd, Spufford, a former atheist and Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, argues that Christianity is recognizable, drawing on the deep and deeply ordinary vocabulary of human feeling, satisfying those who believe in it by offering a ruthlessly realistic account of the grown-up dignity of Christian experience.

Fans of C. S. Lewis, N. T. Wright, Marilynne Robinson, Mary Karr, Diana Butler Bass, Rob Bell, and James Martin will appreciate Spufford's crisp, lively, and abashedly defiant thesis.

Unapologetic is an audiobook for believers who are fed up with being patronized, for non-believers curious about how faith can possibly work in the 21st century, and for anyone who feels there is something indefinably wrong, literalistic, anti-imaginative, and intolerant about the way the atheist case is now being made.

Superb! So helpful.

I am grateful to have come across this marvelous book even so late in my journey. Listening to this was exhilarating and healing for me. I’m a pastor near the end of my long career with plenty of doubts about the value of the church in bringing wholeness and health to the world. At the end of this fascinating book I am greatly encouraged and hopeful.
