In response to the April 15 release of the film version of Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged," Biola apologetics speaker Clay Jones will spend a week exploring the "good," "bad" and "ugly" ideas of Rand's classic novel on his blog. Jones is ready to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of ideas presented in "Atlas Shrugged."  Jones presents a Judeo-Christian worldview response to Rand's perspective at, attempting to establish a middle ground between the often extreme views of conservative and liberal thinkers. According to Jones, Christians can both appreciate and criticize Rand's ideas, which posit ideas such as that God does not exist, humans will not work unless they believe their efforts are rewarded, man is to be worshipped, a rationalist utopia is possible and man must use his mind to the fullest.
