David Fergusson’s Faith and Its Critics: A Conversation is written in response to the new atheists,

..David Fergusson’s Faith and Its Critics: A Conversation  Gifford lectures, Oxford University Press, 2009 is written in response to the new atheists, especially Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, Christopher Hitchens and Sam Harris. Fergusson regards it as incumbent on Christians to give an answer for the hope that is in them and in this sense his book is certainly an apologetic work. In engaging the new atheists on their own territory Fergusson turns in his second chapter to discussion of the credibility of religious faith.  He begins by cautioning against the reductive understanding of faith as an assent to intellectual propositions deployed by many of the new atheists.
