Review

"Ward has an amazing capacity to explain in an accessible way. This is a good model of a clear argument." -- Theological Book Review

About the Author

Keith Ward is the Regius Professor of Divinity at Oxford University and a Canon of Christ Church. This book is the sequel to God, Chance and Necessity, his exploration of the compatibility of a scientific worldview and the existence of a creator God, which was published to widespread critical acclaim in 1996. His other influential books include In Defence of the Soul and Concepts of God, also published by Oneworld.

Nevermind what the other reviewer had to say. From what I can see, he is simply existing in the drowning world of biblical literalism, which anybody prepared to read this book must have the intellect to at least challenge.
Reading what adherents to Dawkins' theories about atheism having been proved by science in such books as 'The Blind Watchmaker', it is extremely refreshing to know that even within the same university there is a professor with enough intellect to show that, if Dawkins thinks science disproves God's existence, then he is completely missing the point. Ward has come up with some of the most spectacular thought on the relation between science and religion that I have encountered; this is really necessary reading for any serious theologians.
The only reservation I have about this bookcomes from my own personal differences of faith from Ward, who has somewhat more liberal views than myself. However, this is really no hinderance to the book; if anything, it has only made it more interesting for me to read. A truly great book.

A modern view of the Christian faith that respects the latest findings of science. Mr. Ward's book is a delight to read and is easily accessible read for the layman. I highly recommend to those with an open mind.

Format: Paperback
Having read numerous Christian apologetics books over the past two years, I was looking forward to learning what this author had to say on Christianity and science. The read proved to be a major disappointment. The author works in an environment where evolution is accepted as an estabilished fact (e.g., there is no mention, perhaps awareness, of Michael Behe's work or that of Phillip E. Johnson) and the integration of world religions is the goal and he re-interprets the message of the Bible in this light. While the terminology is Christian and there are times when the author seems to be lapsing back into a mainstream Christian message, his understanding of Christianity is decidedly non-Christian. He selects the ideas which are appealing to his sensibilities and tosses statements which are troubling in these enlightened times (e.g, hardly anyone goes to Hell and Christ is only one of many ways). What we are left with is a watered down treatment which would never have inspired the original Christians to go out and do what they did to spread the Word. I believe I heard that only about 2% of Britons attend church; if this is what passes for Christian theology, I can see why.

Format: Paperback
Ward attempted to reconcile materialism and Christianity--and fails. There are much better books on both sides. for the materialist side I would rather recommend Dawkins' The Blind Watchmaker or The selfish gene; Rushton's Race, Evolution and Behavior; Jared's The Real American Dilemma; Hawking's A Brief History of Time. This are all beter books from the materialist side. And for a book soundly reconciling Christianity with materialism, I like beter Duke's My Awakening.
