"The book is important for a number of reasons ... Dawkins′ God ends with a valuable and more general chapter on science and religion, emphasising the limitations of the human mind." (The Journal of SJT, 2012) "Dawkins is disposed of with panache, and with McGrath′s ususal clarity and conciseness." ( Theology ) "Lucid and brief, without being perfunctory or dismissive, and fulfils the role of guide to the educated layperson without eliciting boredom from the academic familiar with the field ... The end result of this effort by McGrath is that, once again, I would have no hesitation in recommending the book as a basic text for A–level or first–year undergraduate students looking for their appetite to be whetted for a number of connected fields of scholarship, or indeed for the ′educated layperson′ seeking a grasp of the issues without having to wade through hundreds of pages of science and theology ... A very finely judged piece of writing." ( Kaleidoscope ) "With clear and incisive argumentation, McGrath takes Dawkins on and exposes many of the weaknesses in his case for atheism." ( Reformed Theological Journal )

"Informed, feisty, and terrific fun. I cannot wait to see Dawkinss review of Alister McGraths critique."
