    A very enjoyable and informative read, well presented with a minimum of technical terminology. In the first part of his book, Gavin Lawrie addresses a number of issues in two books by Richard Dawkins; (1) The Greatest Show on Earth, and (2) The God Delusion. I was impressed by the courtesy that Lawrie afforded Professor Dawkins whilst professionally demolishing his arguments. Other writers have contended with Dawkins on these same issues, but this book offers some new perspectives that are well worth considering. In the remainder of the work, the author provides an alternative explanation for the issues that atheism and evolution theory seek to address: the cause of our existence, its meaning, and purpose. Again, the exposition on these issues is cogent and courteous, and the honest seeker after truth will no doubt ponder the implications - those with closed minds are unlikely to read the book anyway. Nonetheless, it is this latter section that had me conclude for four stars, not five: I sensed a lapse into Christian dogmatism with a failure to give due regard to alternative thinking on some subjects. For example, the author wrote in relation to the cross being a symbol of Christianity: "Christianity does not have any [symbols]" (p. 122). A quick internet search has Wikipedia quoting respected Christian author Alister McGrath: "The Christian Cross, seen as a representation of the instrument of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, is the best-known religious symbol of Christianity." No doubt Gavin Lawrie intended to make a salient point, but he failed to justify this bold assertion. Some of the author's contentions are contrary to my own beliefs and whilst I respect and treasure his point of view, I do think that he might have explored some issues a little more deeply. On the whole, however, a very valuable contribution to the literature and in reading it, I have found a number of points that I shall pursue. I thank Gavin for writing this book, and his personal encouragement to read it - a very worthwhile use of my time.
