Book Review: 'God's Undertaker: Has Science Buried God?' by John Lennox

God's Undertaker: Has Science Buried God?
By John Lennox

Review by Rebecca Johnson

If you are interested in the eternally significant debates between Christianity and atheism you will find this to be a compelling read. This book is written for those who have a good basic understanding of science, mathematics and biology. John C. Lennox engages the reader with topics like the rational intelligibility of the universe, the fine tuning of the universe, DNA and irreducible complexity.

What this book really does is explain the war of worldviews. You will discover more about the conflict between theism and naturalism. John C. Lennox asks: "Is it really true that everything in science points towards atheism?" You might be surprised at the answer.

Now combating Richard Dawkins' ideas is a picnic in the park for this author. He is probably the smartest author I've ever discovered on my own at amazon. His logical conclusions are often very funny too. So while this is mainly a serious look at scientific and religious issues it is also laugh out loud funny in places.

I felt John C. Lennox explained DNA and RNA better than anyone has before. He also explains how information input is necessary for the origin of life.

I'd highly recommend this book to scientists and mathematicians because this book promotes so much intellectual enjoyment.
