3.0 out of 5 stars 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!

1.0 out of 5 stars Missed Opportunity, 15 Jan. 2008
It's hard to think of anyone to recommend this book to. Certainly if you've read Dawkins' "God Delusion" and want to be challenged by a well argued opposing case, you won't find it here. Similarly if you want a rebuttal of Dawkins arguments, you'd do far better just to read "The God Delusion" and formulate your own. About the only thing in McGrath's favour is that you reach the end quickly. A real missed opportunity.
