'The Grand Design', by eminent scientist Stephen Hawking, is the latest blockbusting contribution to the so-called New Atheist debate, and claims that the laws of physics themselves brought the Universe into being, rather than God. In this swift and forthright reply, John Lennox, Oxford mathematician and author of 'God's Undertaker', exposes the flaws in Hawking's logic. In lively, layman's terms, Lennox guides us through the key points in Hawking's arguments - with clear explanations of the latest scientific and philosophical methods and theories - and demonstrates that far from disproving a Creator God, they make his existence seem all the more probable.

Great and easy read. Important book on this topic. John Lennox shows how otherwise great scientist Stephen Hawking makes logical fallacies in his latest book.
John Lennox is not the only scientist to point this out nor do only theist point to this problem. Naturalistic philosophers have also pointed out problem in a major premise of Stephen Hawking's book "The Grand Design" that 'philosophy is dead'.
Important thing to mention in this book John Lennox doesn't in any way put down Stephen Hawking, rather he points out very obvious problems with some of his conclusions.
