by Jacob ThomasThe new atheists caused quite the furore with books such as Richard Dawkins’ “The God Delusion.” Christians were among those accused of promoting magical thinking and harmful ideology.

It's as if each shape is a door or window to another world; the whole display a chocolate box for the mind—a magical carriage to take you on... more
