God and Stephen Hawking

God and Stephen Hawking, John Lennox, Lion UK, Nonfiction, September 1st 2011, 96 pages.

God and Stephen Hawking: Whose Design Is It Anyway?Synopsis: 'The Grand Design', by eminent scientist Stephen Hawking, is the latest blockbusting contribution to the so-called New Atheist debate, and claims that the laws of physics themselves brought the Universe into being, rather than God. In this swift and forthright reply, John Lennox, Oxford mathematician and author of 'God's Undertaker', exposes the flaws in Hawking's logic. In lively, layman's terms, Lennox guides us through the key points in Hawking's arguments - with clear explanations of the latest scientific and philosophical methods and theories - and demonstrates that far from disproving a Creator God, they make his existence seem all the more probable.

My thoughts: I really enjoyed this book! Kept short and to the point, God and Stephen Hawking systematically and logically tears down the argument put forth in Stephen Hawking's book The Grand Design. Lennox did a wonderful job. I love a great logical debate, and this delivered, even to the point of being a one-day read.
