Atheism 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.

Industry Reviews

...robust reply to writers such as Dawkins, Hitchens and others... * The Bookseller *
"This is a powerful, hard-hitting yet accurate indictment of the `New Atheists'. Quoting extensively from their works, Lennox fully documents their closemindedness, their reluctance to consider evidence, and their resort to ridicule, mockery, and misrepresentation in the place of serious argument - qualities that can make their work confirm rather than undermine religious belief." -- Professor Alvin Plantinga, The William Harry Jellema Professor of Philosophy at Calvin College
"There is no more important debate than this - science versus religion. But it needs to begin again, with a clear understanding of what science and religion actually are. Lennox has done this wonderfully." -- Colin Tudge in The Guardian
