Of course the answer to the question is ‘no!’ but this fresh look will engage the most ardent of protagonists. Professor Lennox brings the logic of the mathematician to show that science and religion do not belong to a war zone as some would have us believe. His highly accessible account is interlaced with colourful humour and personal experiences that relate to the excitement of rational, sensible and wholesome insights from the best attested manuscripts of the ancient world. Myths are dispatched; miracles, evil and suffering are confronted; the Standard Model of physics, the Big Bang and the open Universe are richly explored, and much more. Finally, case studies tell what can happen upon entering the laboratory where truths are tested, but beware, particularly if you are coming from some sceptical distance, it’s a book that could make a difference in worldviews and even lives.
