Apparently, Josh Timonen, once a right-hand man of New Atheist author Richard Dawkins, has converted to Christianity. Timonen began working with Dawkins back in 2006, just before the publication of Dawkins’ bestseller, The God Delusion, helping with Dawkins’ website, some documentaries, as well as his foundation and merchandise. The two parted ways due to a legal dispute.
Later, Timonen relocated his family during the pandemic, and they started attending a church so that his young daughter could make friends. At that church, Timonen and his wife began to reconsider Christianity and, after reading Lee Strobel’s The Case for Christ, Timonen was confronted with the historical fact of Jesus’ life, ministry, and resurrection, all of which he had dismissed early on in his atheism. Within the year, Josh and his wife placed their faith in Christ.
Timonen’s story is a reminder that God is at work and that through Christ, can reconcile us to Himself, even “while we were enemies” (Romans 5:10).
