Academia strikes with poorly reasoned, over-complicated argument.
on 2 August 2017
I was encouraged to read this as I am struggling with certain faith issues: not so much that of the title, but more "Is God real, or is everything just chance?". To an extent the book addresses that question presenting arguments against macro-evolution (lack of evidence, abandonment of a null hypothesis to an extent that wouldn't be tolerated in other branches of science) and some statistical analysis of the probability of everything evolving in a random fashion.
That said, the book was an immense disappointment viewed against the rave reviews of Lennox as a speaker and apologeticist put forward by evangelical Christians. For me the book was rambling, could have been far more succinct and better and more clearly argued and unnecessarily used over-complicated language. It comes across as very intellectual and academic, but the train of argument just isn't clear much of the time. The leap from refuting macro-evolution to accepting the Christian message is huge and largely unsupported by rational argument.
