About the Author
Philosopher and former atheist Antony Flew set the agenda for modern atheism with his 1950 essay "Theology and Falsification," which became the most widely reprinted philosophical publication of the last half century. Flew has published over thirty books, including God and Philosophy, The Presumption of Atheism, and How to Think Straight. He spent twenty years as professor of philosophy at the University of Keele and has also held positions at Oxford, the University of Aberdeen, and the University of Reading. He now lives in Reading, England.

This text puts to rest any rumors of a slipping, aging mind or a deathbed conversion. The writing is lucid, we'll structured, and thorough. Additionally, he is quick to point out that he still doesn't believe in an afterlife, nor any specific religious faith, just that a divine mind must exist. So for any of the so called "new atheists" who have condemned Flew for not adhering to their "faith" I would challenge them to read this and follow the Socratic Club's maxim themselves.
The only aspect of this book that caused me to rate it less than five was the writing style Flew employed. It is written as if it is more of a discourse to other philosophers than to those of us who are not so enlightened as to be philosophers. Less formality in the verbiage would make it a more comprehendible read for the non-philosopher types.
I do highly recommend this book because the reader can learn much in a relatively short book.
