Alister E. McGrath is one of the world's leading theologians, with a doctorate in the sciences. Richard Dawkins is one of the bestselling popular science writers, with outspoken and controversial views on religion. This fascinating and provoking work is the first book-length response to Dawkins' ideas, and offers an ideal introduction to the topical issues of science and religion. - Addresses fundamental questions about Dawkins' approach to science and religion: Is the gene actually selfish? Is the blind watchmaker a suitable analogy? Are there other ways of looking at things? - Tackles Dawkins' hostile and controversial views on religion, and examines the religious implications of his scientific ideas, making for a fascinating and provoking debate. - Written in a very engaging and accessible style, ideal to those approaching scientific and religious issues for the first time. - Alister McGrath is uniquely qualified to write this book. He is one of the world's best known and most respected theologians, with a strong research background in molecular biophysics. - A superb book by one of the world's leading theologians, which will attract wide interest in the growing popular science market, similar to Susan Blackmore's The Meme Machine (1999). Table of Contents: 1. The Selfish Gene: A Darwinian View of the World 2. The Blind Watchmaker: Evolution and the Elimination of God? 3. Proof and Faith: The Place of Evidence in Science and Religion 4. Cultural Darwinism? The Curious 'Science' of Memetics 5. Science and Religion: Dialogue or Intellectual Appeasement?
