Has Science Buried God?
The purpose of this book is well stated by
the author in the epilogue at the very end of the book. He says “In
conclusion, I submit that, far from science having buried God, not only
do the results of science point toward his existence, but the
scientific enterprise itself is validated by his existence.” John
Lennox is a professor of mathematics at Oxford University.

In the 190 pages that make up this book, Lennox deals with the notion
that science has made belief in God obsolete. His approach is to take
the writings of leading atheists and agnostics and the claims they have
made about religion and science, and show that these claims do not
stand up. People like Richard Dawkins are heavily quoted in the book,
and Lennox responds in great detail to their claims. Evolution,
cosmology, design evidence, and questions of origins are all covered.
The book has eleven chapters which deal with world views, the scope and
limits of science, design in cosmology and biology, evolution, the
origin of life, the genome and its information, the role of chance, and
the role of faith in science. The book is well written with extensive
documentation and is challenging reading. It will be of interest to
college students and people with strong backgrounds in philosophy and
