Book of the Week: Who Made God?

by Edgar Andrews.

If you've been waiting for a really effective riposte to the "new atheism" of Richard Dawkins and others (or even if you haven't) here it is - gently humorous, highly readable, deeply serious, razor sharp, and written by an internationally respected scientist. Who made God? dismantles the arguments and pretensions of scientific atheism and presents a robust biblical theism as a positive, and altogether more convincing, alternative.
