World-renowned scientist Richard Dawkins writes in The God Delusion: 'If this book works as I intend, religious readers who open it will be atheists when they put it down'. The volume has received wide coverage, fuelled much passionate debate and caused not a little confusion. Alister McGrath is ideally placed to evaluate Dawkins' ideas. Once an atheist himself, he gained a doctorate in molecular biophysics before going on to become a leading Christian theologian. He wonders how two people, who have reflected at length on substantially the same world, could possibly have come to such different conclusions about God. McGrath subjects Dawkins' critique of faith to rigorous scrutiny. His exhilarating, meticulously argued response deals with questions such as: Is faith intellectual nonsense? Are science and religion locked in a battle to the death? Can the roots of Christianity be explained away scientifically? Is Christianity simply a force for evil? This book will be warmly received by those looking for a reliable assessment of The God Delusion and the many questions it raises - including, above all, the relevance of faith and the quest for meaning.

Review:

. . . a fine, dense, yet very clear account, from [McGrath's] particular Christian perspective, of the full case against Dawkins. --New Scientist (Bryan Appleyard)

From the Publisher:

'The God Delusion makes me embarrassed to be an atheist, and
the McGraths show why.'

Michael Ruse, Professor of Philosophy, Florida State University

'Richard Dawkins' utopian vision of a world without religion is here deftly
punctured by McGrath's informed discourse. His fellow Oxonian clearly
demonstrates the gaps, inconsistencies, and surprising lack of depth in
Dawkins' arguments.'

Owen Gingerich, Professor of Astronomy, Harvard University
