God's Undertaker

Has Science Buried God?

«'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

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. Les mer

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.

This book evaluates the evidence of modern science in relation to the debate between the atheistic and theistic interpretations of the universe, and provides a fresh basis for discussion.

The chapters include:
War of the worldviews
The scope and limits of science Reduction, reduction, reduction...
Designer universe Designer biosphere
The nature and scope of evolution
The origin of life
The genetic code and its origin Matters of information
The monkey machine
The origin of information.

Now updated and expanded, God's Undertaker is an invaluable contribution to the debate about science's relationship to religion.

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
