Well written, and interesting, 17 Jan. 2008
I read this book as a counter to Dawkins' God Delusion. I found it enjoyable to read, and though I don't agree with some of his arguments, they were mostly well presented. The exception being the section where Collins addresses the assault on his daughter; it is simply beyond me to accept the idea of rape being a "challenge to learn forgiveness".
On the other hand, whatever pre-conceptions you come to the book with, it's unlikely to live up to them. For myself I came away from the book having learned more about science than about religion, when I had expected (and rather hoped for) the complete opposite!
