Is God A Delusion?

By Nicky Gumbel

Has science disproved God?

Does religion do more harm than good?

Is faith irrational?

Drawing upon his experience as a barrister, Nicky Gumbel addresses the biggest issue of our age: does God exist? He sifts through the arguments adopted by some prominent atheists and assesses the evidence.

The book includes a chapter by the Revd Dr Graham Tomlin, now Bishop of Kensington and President of St Mellitus College, who writes a response to Richard Dawkins from a theologian’s perspective.

Chapters include:

  • Has science disproved God?
  • Does religion do more harm than good?
  • Is faith irrational?
  • Postscript: A theologian’s perspective
  • Appendix: Who is Jesus?
