Dr. Andrews is a treasure to the Christian community. His point about the incompleteness of most responses to the new atheists is spot-on. The standard approach is to defend a generic theism, instead of presenting a positive case in favor of biblical theism, as Dr. Andrews seeks to do.

A number of years ago I listened to the debate that he and A. E. Wilder-Smith engaged in with John Maynard-Smith and Richard Dawkins. All Christians should listen to it.

Also, the lectures of his partner in that debate, the late Dr. Wilder-Smith (holder of 3 earned doctorates and arguably the father of "intelligent design") are entertaining and truly eye-opening. They can be found here:
