God And Stephen Hawking Book Review

I recently received a small book that had a very big impact. God and Stephen Hawking is a very small book, almost enough to be a booklet, that I think many people should read. Whether it be the Christian who witnesses or the college student, etc. This is a must-read book!!


Eminent scientist Stephen Hawking's latest contribution to the so-called New Atheist debate The Grand Design claims that the laws of physics themselves brought the universe into being, rather than God. In this swift and forthright reply, John C. Lennox, Oxford mathematician and author of God's Undertaker, exposes the flaws in Hawking's logic in his latest book, God and Stephen Hawking (Kregel Publishers, September 2011,ISBN: 9780745955490, $5.99).

Science has immense cultural and intellectual authority in our sophisticated modern world. With this kind of cache, it must nevertheless be pointed out that not all statements by scientists are statements of science. Therefore such statements do not carry the authority of authentic science, even though it is often erroneously ascribed to them.
God and Stephen HawkingCommonly written off as the inevitable clash between science and religion, the God debate is actually one between theism and atheism, where there are scientists on both sides. With a remarkable surge of interest in God that defies the so-called secularization hypothesis, it could well be that it is precisely the perceived failure of secularization that is driving the God question ever higher on the agenda. Book after book is being published on the subject by prominent scientists, as Francis Collins, Richard Dawkins, Robert Winston, etc. But were Galileo, Kepler, Newton and Maxwell, to name a few, really all wrong on the God question?

With such a lot at stake we surely need to ask Hawking to produce evidence to establish his claim. Do his arguments really stand up to close scrutiny? Has the Grand Master of Physics checkmated the Grand Designer of the Universe?

In lively, layman's terms, Lennox guides us through the key points in Hawking's arguments-with clear explanations of the latest scientific and philosophical methods and theories-and demonstrates that, far from disproving a Creator God, they make His existence seem all the more probable. Lennox's book is a great resource for Christians, churches and those in ministry who seek to educate themselves and open authentic dialog with those who question.


I am not really all that knowledgeable about creation vs. evolution. I know the basics about these things but getting into the scientific areas are not my thing. But I have to tell you, I learned a lot from this book. It was very down to earth and the language was easy to understand. I now have several points I will be using when I meet the college student out on the street. If you regularly witness and run into high school students or others that want to get into the scientific area, you have to get this book. It is not expensive at all and I couldn't believe all the information in this little book.

You can purchase this book from the author, John Lennox, or from Amazon. It does not release until September so you will not be able to get it until then.

I received a copy of this book for review purposes. I did not receive any monetary compensation. All thoughts are 100% mine.

See www.discovery.org for an understanding of some weaknesses of evolution. These noted scientists have evidence in many books and research articles about the design of the world. Darwinian evolution is mathematically impossible.

In olden days the God-believers said: When there was nothing, there was God. When there will be nothing again, there will still be God.
But then scientists came and changed everything. Now they say: When there was nothing, there were quantum laws. When there will be nothing again, there will still be quantum laws.
These quantum laws are spaceless, timeless, changeless, eternal, all-pervading, unborn, uncreated and immaterial. Only that these laws lack consciousness.
These quantum laws are spaceless, timeless and immaterial, because when there was no space, no time and no matter, there were still these quantum laws. (Vilenkin’s model)
These quantum laws are all-pervading, because these laws act equally everywhere.
Quantum laws are scientists' God.

Sounds good, I believe in Creationism, and know that Stephen Hawkings is an atheist but not much else.
