Product description


This short book is more than just a critical analysis of the deep question posed in the title. It is a scientific detective story, which keeps the reader on his toes as the evidence is put in place bit by bit. John Lennox reaches his final conclusion in grand Hercule Poirot style, revealing the answer that he sees as the only possible solution to the pieces of evidence he has amassed along the way. If you begin this book thinking the answer to the question in the title is 'No', you will enjoy this masterful collecting of the evidence. If you begin it thinking it is 'Yes', maybe you won't in the end be persuaded to change your view, but you will certainly be faced with a lot of challenging and thought-provoking ideas that will certainly tax your powers of reasoning. Whatever your final conclusion, it is impossible not to find this a stimulating read. --Keith Frayn, Professor of Human Metabolism, University of Oxford

As an agnostic in the true sense of the word as 'not knowing', I found John Lennox's book intriguing and providing much food for thought. The relationship between science, both biological and cosmological, and Christian beliefs is closely examined and evidence carefully marshalled to dispel the idea that the two approaches are incompatible. The author is a committed Christian and an internationally recognised mathematician. Will the reader be convinced by his arguments? I must leave this to others to judge. But whatever the conclusion, one must agree that this is a well-written and thought-provoking book and will contribute to reasoned discussion on a fundamental question: Has Science Buried God? --Alan Emery, Emeritus Professor of Human Genetics, University of Edinburgh

God s Undertaker: Has Science buried God; by John Lennox is an important and topical contribution to the debate and questions about the origin of the universe and its physical laws, the origin of complex biological design and the purpose (if any) of mankind. There are some (both religious and materialists) who would like to give the impression that we have answers to these most fundamental questions, and, most disturbingly, even attempt to stifle and censor debate. However, it is my opinion that rather than inhibit further discussion we should encourage further intelligent debate about mankind's origins and that is why I believe it is essential that manuscripts such as God s Undertaker; be published and made available to the public so that they can judge for themselves. --Chris Paraskeva, Professor of Experimental Oncology, University of Bristol


This book evaluates the evidence of modern science in relation to the debate between the atheistic and theistic interpretations of the universe, and provides a basis for discussion. The book has grown out of the author's lengthy experience of lecturing and debating on this subject in the UK, USA, Germany and Russia, and has been written in response to endless requests for the argumentation in written form as people seem to feel that the approach draws them in to the debate in a fresh way.
