God Doesn't; We Do: The apologist two-step--McGrew and Marshall on Boghossian
Argues that Norman Geisler and Frank Turek's "I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist" use "faith" in a very similar way to the way Boghossian does, namely "We mean that the less evidence you have for your position, the more faith you need to believe it (and vice versa). Faith covers a gap in knowledge."

Peter Boghossian vs Tim McGrew - YouTube
Here's an "Unbelievable" show in which Boghossian ("A Manual For Creating Atheists") talks to Tim McGrew, who's reasonably well known for his arguments in favour of belief in miracles. I've linked to a set of comments from "MrShamuto" where he undertakes more or less the process Boghossian describes in the books, of Socratic dialogue with "AdeToz", a Christian. It is long and occasionally interrupted by other people who are bonkers, but it's interesting to see Boghossian's stuff in action.
