The Dawkins Delusion by Alister McGrath & Joanna Collicutt McGrath – Book Review

For those looking for a book that will help them answer fans of Richard Dawkins’ The God Delusion, I can recommend Alister McGrath’s The Dawkins Delusion.  In 118 pages the McGraths take a look at four points, among many, that Dawkins errs. To answer all the errors in The God delusion would take multiple books.

The major section headings are: “Deluded about God?”, “Has science disproved God?”, “What are the origins of Religion?” and is religion evil?” Each section gives a reasoned response to one of Dawkins major errors in thought and logic.

For those who may discount this book by the McGraths as just a Christian response to an attack on Christianity, Alister McGrath was an atheist scientist who on examining the evidence became a Christian theologian.

Have a blessed day,



About dwwork

The name of this blog is taken from 1 Peter 3:13 - “always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience. This verse became special to me over ten years ago when I was asked to teach an adult Sunday school class on Christian apologetics. This interest grew over the years to the point that I took some graduate level classes in apologetics. I think the best way to be prepared to give and answer to everyone who asks is to know scripture. It is my hope that through these short devotionals the reader will become more familiar with each verse. I have tried when possible to make them personal hoping in some small way to show that God’s word written over two thousand years ago is still relevant today. In the writing of these short devotionals I have been able to better understand how God’s word impacts my life. It is my hope that you too will come closer to our Lord Jesus and develop a closer relationship with Him. Finally, if the reader finds anything in conflict with scripture please let me know. God’s word is the final authority always overrules anything I might write. David
