Not quite as good as Dawkins, Hitchens, Harris or Warraq,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: God the Failed Hypothesis: How Science Shows That God Does Not Exist (Paperback)
This is not a bad book; it contains some interesting facts and asks some reasonable questions. However, it is overall just not as interesting and gave me fewer new ideas than some other sceptical literature.
Those wanting to read a reasoned case against the existence of God may often do better to read Richard Dawkins The God Delusion, Christopher Hitchens' God is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything, Sam Harris Letter To A Christian Nation or (a different kind of book, addressing only one religion) Why I Am Not a Muslim by Ibn Warraq.
However, if you want a shorter summary of the argument than some of the above, the latter part of Stenger's book is quite a good one.
In a debate in which the sceptical case is often made by biologists (e.g. Darwin & Dawkins) the earlier part of Stenger's book is a welcome attempt to make such a case from the evidence of physics and astronomy, but one would probably need to study those subjects for a long time to be able to judge whether he is right.
