Alister McGrath has written to great acclaim on both Richard Dawkins and C. S. Lewis. Here he brings these two intriguing and well-known writers into a conversation. They could hardly have more different perspectives! Engaging with their views is a brilliant way of sharpening up our own thinking on the meaning of life.
Richard Dawkins' utopian vision of a world without religion is here deftly punctured by McGrath's informed discourse. His fellow Oxonian clearly demonstrates the gaps, inconsistencies and surprising lack of depth in Dawkins' arguments. - Owen Gingerich, Professor Emeritus of Astronomy and History of Science, Harvard University.
The God Delusion makes me embarrassed to be an atheist, and the McGraths show why. - Michael Ruse, Professor of History and Philosophy of Science Program, Florida State University.
McGrath's book will gain a permanent position in Lewis scholarship for his brilliant and, to my mind, undeniable re-dating of Lewis's conversion to Theism. How we all missed this for so long is astonishing! - Michael Ward, author of Planet Narnia.
This biography is the one Lewis's admirers - especially those who, like him, believe that books are to be read and enjoyed - should prefer to all others. - (Booklist, starred review).
