The End of Christianity

by William A. Dembski

-information taken from the Phenix Publicity website

In his latest book, author William A. Dembski draws from his theological and scientific expertise to answer Christianity’s toughest question: how can a good God exist with an evil world? Never one to shy away from the spirited debate over science and religion, Dembski draws from his intimate knowledge of philosophical theology, mathematical information theory and the natural sciences to ultimately arrive at a truth that transcends the tired debates over young- and old-Earth creationism.

With an imposing career as a bestselling author, lecturer and researcher, Dr. William A. Dembski is a leading figure in the intelligent design movement. Dembski has appeared on national programs such as NPR’s “The Diane Rehm Show,” CNN, Fox News, the BBC, PBS (“Inside the Law” with Jack Ford and “Uncommon Knowledge” with Peter Robinson), “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” and ABC’s “Nightline,” hosted by George Stephanopoulos.

My Review

This is not a "light reading" book. It reads more like a theology text book meant for the scholars-to-be amongst us than a book for the masses. The author is a professor and you can certainly tell in his writing. I found the book to be well written and I appreciated how Dembski tackles some rather highly debated issues. I also appreciated the way he included scientific information and arguments. If you are looking for a meatier read than The End of Christianity just might be for you.
