A new, updated edition of John Lennox's successful book, including a foreword by Francis Collins, Director of the Human Genome Project
John Lennox is Reader in Mathematics at the University of Oxford and Fellow in Mathematics and the Philosophy of Science at Green College. He has lectured in many universities around the world and is particularly interested in the interface of Science, Philosophy and Theology.
A brilliantly argued re-evaluation of the relation of science and
religion, casting welcome new light on today's major debates. A
must-read for all reflecting on the greatest questions of life.
--Alister McGrath, author, Glimpsing the Face of God
Recent books touting atheism have been grounded more on dyspepsia than on dispassionate reason. In this book John considers the best, most recent science from physics and biology, and demonstrates that the picture looks far different from what we've been told. --Michael Behe, author, Darwin's Black Box and The Edge of Evolution
