DescriptionAtheism is on the march in the western world, and its enemy is God. Religion, the "New Atheists" claim, "is dangerous", it "kills" or "poisons everything". And if religion is the problem with the world, their answer is simple: get rid of it. But are things really so straightforward? Tackling the likes of Richard Dawkins, Stephen Hawking, Christopher Hitchens, and Daniel Dennett head on, John Lennox highlights the fallacies in the their approach, arguing that their irrational and unscientific methodology leaves them guilty of the same obstinate foolishness of which they accuse dogmatic religious folks. Erudite and wide-ranging, Gunning for God packs some debilitating punches. It also puts forward new ideas about the nature of God and Christianity that will give the New Atheists' best friends and worst enemies alike some stimulating food for thought.

Lennox shows his superiority in the philosophical argument of faith v reason, in that religion does not necessarily rely on faith in order to believe in the supernatural. Lennox gives an in dept response on these new atheist claims, and articulates his points concisely. This is a great book for all who struggle to grasp with the new atheist arguments, as it illustrates that we don't have to abandon reason and logic in order to adopt the beauty that is God. by Michael Alam
