Summary

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 audiobook, 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.

Content seems good but narration is terrible.

Disappointed! This is a topic i find incredibly interesting and I believe the content of the book to be very good, But the performance is very distracting. I got about 2 hours in, thinking I might get used to the narrators voice. I didn't. It just got more distracting. Like listening to Microsoft Sam reading. May have to get the hard copy and read it myself.

Facts not fiction

Here you have the explanations to how it all started.
There is something for those who knows a lot about sicens and the you have some for the scientists... At times I don't understand the words...but somehow it made sense

Great book. Terrible narration.

As other reviewers have noted, the mispronunciations are distracting and annoying, and really detract from an otherwise good overview of the science-faith debate. (“He puts the wrong emPHASis on the wrong sylLABeI.”) I somehow made it through to the end...but I’m looking forward to re-reading the actual book, which I’ve already ordered. I would recommend the book, but not the audiobook.

Stupendous! Nothing less from J C. Lennox

I couldn't stop listening to it. The open & rational mind of Mr: Lennox is a gift to himself & to his listeners, thies or otherwise. His clear, cut to the chase explanations are understandable even to someone li myself. Great job & keep up the good work you have been entrusted with.

He needs a reader with some energy.

Where does God's Undertaker: Has Science Buried God? rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

John Lennox is one of my favorites: preacher/teacher/defender of the Faith. This reader, however, would be much better reading in another genre. I love the audible books but this one I will read myself.

Great content

John Lennox is a great thinker and speaker. Unfortunately the narrator mispronounced so many words over, and over, that it really took away from the great arguments made in the book. I kept thinking how the information could have been so much better delivered and impactful with Mr Lennox’s own voice. Still I enjoyed the deep thinking and especially the incredibly detailed medical descriptions of the complexity in our bodies.

Read by a robot

Great book, but the narration is done electronically (not by a person) and is really hard to listen to.

Great Content. Not so great voice acting.

I love the content of this book. John Lennox does a great job of showing how science has not buried God. To the contrary, things like a beginning of our universe, and the fine tuning in our universe actually point towards God.

The only complaint I have about this book is the voice actor, William Crockett. Mr. Crockett gives a very dull reading to this book. In addition he has an annoying habit of taking words that end with ing, and pronouncing them in. So we are constantly hearing words like writin’ seein’ understandin’ etc... If this were a novel and he was giving voice to a character In the deep southern United States, maybe this would be appropriate. But this is not a novel, it’s a book about science and philosophy. The actor is not giving voice to any characters, and thus to have words frequently pronounced in this manner seems annoying.

Terribly produced/performed

I’ve listened to dozens of audio books, and this one is easily the worst I’ve EVER heard. Sadly, it has nothing to do with the material. The substance of this book might be excellent, but the performance is so bad that you can’t process what’s being said. The performers phrasing is so broken that it’s hard to put thoughts together for comprehension. Also, the reader mispronounces so many words it’s really distracting. Sometimes the mispronunciation is so bad is changes the meaning of the sentence. The publisher should re-record this audiobook with a different reader.

Compelling and very insightful

Lennox makes solid and logical arguments throughout this book albeit not as succinct as some listeners may like.

At times some were difficult to follow and could have benefited from some humour. But after all Lennox is a mathematician.

The only significant criticism however was the narrator. His slightly whispered tone and odd pronouncing of certain phrases had a somewhat robotic (think HAL in 2001 a Space Odyssey) feel. Which in an eleven hour book can grow tiresome.

Amazing book, rough listen.

I throughly enjoy the information and topic of discussion. Lennox does a fantastic job in presenting a philosophical and common sense approach to evolution and its speakers. However, the narrator made me feel as if I was asking Siri a question that took hours to answer.

Great book horrible Narrator

I enjoy John C. Lennox and very much admire his writings. Sadly, I was finding myself struggling with this audio book because of the narrator's performance- monotone, no clear starts or stops on sentences, mispronunciations (maybe the narrator is from somewhere else and words are pronounced differently, but some were obvious), etc... Sadly, I purchased the other Lennox audio book and he is the same narrator. UGH! So, I purchased the paperback version of the book and spare myself the narration. I enjoyed Lennox's understanding of the argument being presented and is rationale for realizing how it doesn't make sense. Lennox points out the logical fallacies and continues to integrate God and the truth. I appreciated that.
