It is traditional to read the very book you are trying to criticise! Dawkins might labour the point at times but he is succinct and to the point compared with this.
I'm neither athiest or religious. Im agnostic.I read and was facinated by Dawkins book and when I saw this book on Amazon I decided to get it and hear both sides of the story as it were.Unfortunately this counter argument is extremly weak. Using the bible to try and back up your argument that God exists is like using a brothers Grimm novel to prove Hansel and Grettel existed. We can prove that the Grimm brothers existed because of imperical evidence, but not the famed brother & sister partnership.Theres not chain of evidence here.I was hoping for a strong argument against Dawkins' points but if anything he has made Dawkins' case stronger. Very disappointed in this book.
After reading Richard Dawkins' "The God Delusion", I went out of my way to seek rebuttals. The first I read was McGrath's "The Dawkin's Delusion", which unfortunately proved to be a hopelessly confused, dogmatic, polemic which deliberately mis-characterises Dawkins and the arguments he makes in "The God Delusion".From his early assertion that Christianity is more interesting and intellectually exciting than Atheism (sorry - how does that make it more true?); the book zig-zags awkwardly from topic to topic with no real drive or focus. I had to laugh when McGrath asserted that children should be taught Christianity in schools as an alternative to "Dawkins' dogmas"; as if Atheism and Christianity are the only options.Unfortunately, by the end of the book I was tired of McGrath repeatedly missing the point that discussing the aesthetic merits of the Emperor's latest silken morning suit is irrelevant if you can't demonstrate that the Emperor is actually wearing anything at all.
