  1. This is a succinct and (it seems to me) excellent critique of Grayling’s latest offering, which I’ve not read, and probably won’t. I say this despite a general sympathy for Grayling and an antipathy towards Ward.
  2. The trouble with the “New Atheists” is their over-confidence and ignorance of matters theological, which makes their arguments unsound and counter-productive.
  3. There were other reviews on the Theos website (Link (Defunct)), which I followed up on Amazon, finding further comment.
    • Thomas Nagel - Mind and Cosmos: Why the Materialist1 Neo-Darwinian Conception of Nature is Almost Certainly False
      • A critique of Simon Blackburn’s critique (Link)
    • David H. Glass - Atheism's New Clothes
  4. There’s also "Plantinga (Alvin) - Where the Conflict Really Lies: Science, Religion, and Naturalism".
  5. I doubt I’ll buy or read any of these books (other than Plantinga’s) – dreary stuff.
