Hitchens, Dawkins Pal Says Bye to Atheism, Hello to Jesus

The New Statesman from the UK reports that prominent atheist A. N. Wilson has converted to faith in Christ. You can read the full story here.

From his eNewsletter, Lee Strobel comments,

Believer-turned-atheist A.N. Wilson, a pal of best-selling atheists Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens, made the stunning announcement last month that he has now returned to faith by becoming a follower of Jesus. (Wilson described a time when he was an atheist and was having dinner with Hitchens, who cross-examined him on his fidelity to spiritual skepticism. “‘So – absolutely no God?' ‘Nope,' I was able to say with Moonie-zeal. ‘No future life, nothing ‘out there'?' ‘No,' I obediently replied.”)

Why has Wilson now abandoned atheism to become a Christian? He concluded that “materialist ‘explanations' for our mysterious human existence simply won't do – on an intellectual level.

Never doubt it folks: the weight of evidence is with the faith of the Bible.
