God's Undertaker: Has Science Buried God?

Coperta unu
Lion Books, 2009 - 224 pagini
If we are to believe many modern commentators, science has squeezed God into a corner, killed and then buried him with its all-embracing explanations. Atheism, we are told, is the only intellectually tenable position, and any attempt to reintroduce God is likely to impede the progress of science. In this stimulating and thought-provoking book, John Lennox invites us to consider such claims very carefully. Is it really true, he asks, that everything in science points towards atheism? Could it be possible that theism sits more comfortably with science than atheism? Has science buried God or not? Now updated and expanded, God's Undertaker is an invaluable contribution to the debate about science's relationship to religion.

Excellent!

So far this is an excellent book. John Lennox provides logical and factual explanations while keeping it nice and simple to read so as to not lose the reader. I recommend it to anyone interested in apologetic and even non-christians with an open mind. Citiți recenzia completă

This book I think will answer the question of God's creation of the universe. It will also help the person who has questions of his/her belief in God. John Lennox has written a book for answering all the questions to help in one;s belief in intelligent design. Citiți recenzia completă
