Book Review: 'God and Stephen Hawking: Whose Design Is It Anyway?' by John Lennox

God and Stephen Hawking: Whose Design Is It Anyway?
By John Lennox

Review by Rebecca Johnson

Can science really answer the deepest questions humans ask? John C. Lennox does not seem to think science can and I'd have to agree with him. In this book he takes on the most famous scientist in the world, Stephen Hawking. John C. Lennox presents his logical arguments without any malice and sometimes he is lol funny. I lost track of all the times I laughed while reading this erudite work.

I will say this, John C. Lennox has no patience for logical incoherence and points it out when he finds it.

So do we have to choose between God and science? John Lennox does not seem to think so and shows how more scientists in the past did believe in God.

This book delves into such topics as M-theory, relativism, free will, scientific determinism and reductionism. John Lennox is well versed in philosophy and science and his conclusions make logical sense. So if you want to know what Stephen Hawking believes this book is a good start besides reading his books. John C. Lennox brings a voice of reason to the debate between theism and atheism.
