God’s Undertaker: Has Science Buried God?

New book out from LionHudson on 7 September 2007.
With new atheism loudly gaining more and more media attention, and religion seemingly being backed into a corner with nobody to stand up and rationally defend it, John Lennox’s new book God’s Undertaker: Has Science Buried God? is a much needed addition to the science and faith debate.

God’s Undertaker is an intelligent response to the claims of new atheism, which, based on the evaluation of modern scientific evidence, argues that theism sits more comfortably alongside science than atheism.

Written by John Lennox, a well respected academic and mathematician, the book has received acclaim from top scientists as well as respected figures in the religious community and will provide a thought provoking and fresh basis for discussion.
I have already pre-ordered a copy. The author is a friend from my time at Cambridge University (1966-1969).

The linked page also gives details of a public debate between Richard Dawkins and John Lennox, to be held in Birmingham, Alabama, USA on 3 October 2007.
