The Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu, says Who made God? deals with complex subjects ‘in a palatable form’. A book by a distinguished scientist about the existence of God, with chapter headings like ‘Steam engine to the stars’ and ‘The tidy pachyderm’ has to be different. It is. Dr Andrews shows that the concept of the ‘hypothesis of God’ towers above the barren landscape of atheism and despair.
If you’ve been waiting for a really effective riposte to the “new atheism” of Richard Dawkins and others (or even if you haven’t) here it is – gently humorous, highly readable, deeply serious, razor sharp, and written by an internationally respected scientist. Who made God? dismantles the arguments and pretensions of scientific atheism and presents a robust biblical theism as a positive, and altogether more convincing, alternative.
Thoughtful, readable, witty, wise …
Fay Weldon, novelist, playwright and broadcaster
As a distinguished scientist, Professor Edgar Andrews is well qualified to counter the current attempts to airbrush God out of existence – and does so with intelligent and infectious enthusiasm. Richard Dawkins’ The God delusion is an obvious target and he expertly dismantles its atheistic claims, reducing them to rubble with a lightness of touch I had never before come across in a book of this kind. I know of nothing quite like it.
John Blanchard, author, lecturer and conference speaker
Edgar Andrews is thought–provoking, witty, extremely readable, and ultimately devastating in his critique of evolutionary atheism. He demonstrates that a right understanding of the scientific enterprise poses no threat to biblical Christianity – indeed, that the kind of world we live in is precisely what the biblical account of God and creation would lead us to expect. Richard Dawkins has more than met his match!

This book is an intelligent, insightful response to many of the claims of today’s new atheists.
