I like to begin my topic with this rather interesting introduction to an Essay on this subject, by Alvin Plantinga, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame:
" Richard Dawkins is not pleased with God:
The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all of fiction. Jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic-cleanser; a misogynistic homophobic racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal….
Well, no need to finish the quotation; you get the idea. Dawkins seems to have chosen God as his sworn enemy. (Let's hope for Dawkins' sake God doesn't return the compliment.)"
I want to know what everyone thinks about the book, the arguments made in the book etc.
BTW. I found these rather insightful responses to this book:http://www.christianitytoday.com/bc/2007/002/1.21.htmlhttp://www.azure.org.il/magazine/magazine.asp?id=378
