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? Click here to buy. A great book!

Nothing is more central to the Bible than Jesus’ death and resurrection, over one weekend in Jerusalem about two thousand years ago.

With clarity and conviction, D A Carson unpacks what some of the earliest witnesses wrote, in five New Testament texts, to provide an introductory explanation of Jesus’ death & resurrection.

‘THE DAWKINS LETTERS’
When Richard Dawkins published ‘The God Delusion’, David Robertson wanted there to be an intelligent Christian response. After some ill-thought-through interventions in the media it was obvious that no one was really answering the real issues – so David wrote an open letter to Richard Dawkins on his church website. This found its way onto Richard Dawkins’ website, where it generated the largest response of any posting before or since.
