God's Undertaker: Has Science Buried God?
If we are to believe many modern commentators, science has squeezed God into a corner, killed and then buried him with its all-embracing explanations. Atheism, we are told, is the only intellectually tenable position, and any attempt to reintroduce God is likely to impede the progress of science. In this stimulating and thought-provoking book, John Lennox invites us to consider such claims very carefully. Is it really true, he asks, that everything in science points towards atheism? Could it be possible that theism sits more comfortably with science than atheism? Has science buried God or not? Now updated and expanded, God's Undertaker is an invaluable contribution to the debate about science's relationship to religion.

John Lennox, MA PhD DPhil DSc is Professor of Mathematics at the University of Oxford. He is also a Christian apologist who has debated (very successfully we might say!) Richard Dawkins (see below) and Christopher Hitchens and lectured in numerous universities around the world.
"This short book is more than just a critical analysis of the deep question posed in the title. It is a scientific detective story, which keeps the reader on his toes as the evidence is put in place bit by bit...Whatever your final conclusion, it is impossible not to find this a stimulating read."
Professor Keith Frayn, Professor of Human Metabolism, University of Oxford.

"As an agnostic in the true sense of the word as ‘not knowing’, I found John Lennox’s book intriguing and providing much food for thought...This is a well-written and thought-provoking book and will contribute to reasoned discussion on a fundamental question: Has Science Buried God?"
Professor Alan Emery, Emeritus Professor of Human Genetics, University of Edinburgh
