I understand what you mean, I understand you viewpoint.
But if Catholics are like me, I simply do not read those books and pay no attention to them.
Now, would a book to refute them be a good commercial bet? To be against the Pope and the Catholic Church is good business. To defend Her, I think it is not so good.
Problem with books like the God Delusion is that a LOT of people DO read them. The ideas of these books have reached far and wide and have done a lot of damage. Same with any other of the atheistic bestsellers of the same vein. You can guarantee that some lukewarm believers will have been lost when all they needed was adequate instruction in their faith instead.
Another example of the damage a book can do is The DaVinci Code by Dan Brown. People actually believe the words of a fictional story to be the truth over the Bible and the teachings of the Church..
But if you want to become Catholic, all those critics I tell you, they do have an answer. Just pick them up, come here with them one by one, and you will find nice an knowledgeable guys who are ready to help you.
I insist, all those questions have answers, for most of them are crazy questions addressed to people who are ignorant of the Catholic Church.
INdeed, places like CAF have been a godsend to me, along with the internet in general.
I have seen Christ as a Rock Star, as a human being only, as married to Mary Magdalene and I was told of one where He is homosexual. You have got no patience for that. I could invent some more, like him being polygamous, being a serial killer, or whatever stupid thing would come to my mind so that my book would sell, my movie would make me rich.
But 100 from now, those movies and books will be just dust and Christ will go on in His Glory.
There's a reason that the Church has survived for 2000 years!
