With a carefully argued, point by point refutation of scientific atheism, God, Chance and Necessity shows that modern scientific knowledge does not undermine belief in God, but actually points to the existence of God as the best explanation of the way things are. Thus, it sets out to demolish the claims of books like The Selfish Gene, and to show that the overwhelming appearance of design in nature is not deceptive.
"a very accessible, highly engaging work" "a well argued apologetic for theistic metaphysics" "This book displays a maturity and clarity far surpassing Ward's earlier works"
"A rare synthesis of intellect and conviction, this book offers valuable insights to readers struggling to reconcile faith and science."
"admirable effort to engage the scientist and the philosopher in the question of meaning, and human destiny."
"incisive, logically structured and not cluttered with technical language."
"a profound and richly satisfying book that illuminates better than anything I have come across the most important issue of our time and which sooner or later will consign atheism to the dustbin of philosophical ideas.
"Prof. Ward has written a tightly reasoned and highly accessible book that seeks to show the fallacies of modern scientific atheism"
"The philosophical and scientific arguments for the existence of God - well summarised, for instance in Professor Keith Ward's God, Chance and Necessity (Oneworld, 1996) - are now almost overwhelming."
"Ward combines elegant rendering of familiar arguments with his own creative contribution."
"it engages with the issues of the day from a position of profound and rational faith and deserves to be widely read and discussed"
