Quoting for and against throughout the author has presented a compelling, scientific argument for intelligent design. He allows for scepticism and fully explains (without using the 'God of the gaps' argument his reasoning in refuting the claims of the likes of Dawkins with full reference to accredited scientists working in a range of fields from maths to biology through quantum physics.

Brilliantly exposes the facileness and irrationality of New Atheism and the seriousness and weight of the Christian stance. A great book to read by a famous Christian apologist and brilliant mathematician.

I have four degrees, including two in Biology, and I am also a Christian. This book by a Christian who is also a Professor of Mathematics was likely to be attractive to me, and so it proved. In fact, I can't remember a book I more enjoyed. It is logical and rational, and a delight to read.

Being a believer in God but not a scientist, I have felt that I have my doubts if science is able to disprove God, but am not equipped to argue back. Furthermore, that science has disproved God seems to be a forgone conclusion. The view of Creationists is not to be uttered at school as it is seen as non-scientific and a view held only by the ignorant. Science is presented as factual and the truth while God a myth, a notion to be laughed at in the scientific age. Evolution is taught not as a theory but as if it is established facts! I have been caught up in debates with atheist scientists and I do often feel bullied.

This book is our ammunition in defending our position against that of the atheist scientists. Counterarguments that I have read often start from a different point (for example, theology or personal experience) and therefore can be easily discarded by scientists. But this book is different - it takes on the debate within the own game rules of science. First the author lays out what it means by believing in a Creator and what it doesn't mean. He painstakingly teases out the nuance of the notion which is confusing and misleading in the past and present. Along the way, he briefly traces the development of science and philosophy of science through history to identify where the current confusion arises and in turn to dispel it. Second, he presents the naturalistic view in different areas of science, and launches his counterarguments citing scientific advancement and knowledge. In turn, he exposes the fact that it is unscientific not to believe in a Creator even as this is the inference that the scientific evidence clearly tends.
