Summary

It certainly is a grandiose claim to have banished God. With such a lot at stake, we surely need to ask Hawking to produce evidence to establish his claim. Do his arguments really stand up to close scrutiny? I think we have a right to know.

The Grand Design, by eminent scientist Stephen Hawking, is the latest blockbusting contribution to the "New Atheist" debate and claims that the laws of physics themselves brought the universe into being rather than God.

In this swift and forthright reply, John Lennox, Oxford mathematician and author of God's Undertaker, takes a closer look at Hawking's logic. In lively, layman's terms, Lennox guides us through the key points in Hawking's arguments - with clear explanations of the latest scientific and philosophical methods and theories - and demonstrates that far from disproving a creator God, they make his existence seem all the more probable.

This is a must read for anyone who believes in God

Excellent points and he is very precise. Recommend listening to him on veritas forum videos on you tube.

I made a mistake.

Information was very good. However I originally gave a low rating because of what I reported as terrible audio. I later found that for whatever reason the terrible audio was caused by my vehicle speakers and not the audio book. I am so sorry to the author and publisher. Please accept my apology.

Excellent arguments. Concise logic.

unlike so many of these types of arguments, the author is concise and logical in every argument without being ridiculously verbose like so many are.

great read

John Lennox does a great job dispelling the idea that there is a conflict betweem a belief in God and modern science.

Horrid book!

There are no facts in this rebuttal. This is spewing hatred. This shows no understanding of science .

No what I was expecting

Although I agree with the author in his religious believes, I totally disagree with his approach.
I was expecting an empirical way to prove a point, instead I found arguments based on opinions and not empirical data. I believe Hawkins was a great scientist, but his arguments do not proof or denied the existence of God.
The author used philosophical mumbo jumbo as proof of his argument, but the mumbo jumbo has no real empirical substance. I was expecting more correlation with the Higgs boson concept, the it completely missed the mark.

Using Stephen Hawking’s name to sell a book. Awful!

Sucked in by seeing God and Stephen Hawking’s name together in the title. Cheap trick. Horrible logic.
