"This well-researched and carefully organized study makes a significant contribution to Christian theological reflection on the meaning of evolution. Its calm conversation with Richard Dawkins' atheist reading of Darwin is a model of mature theological scholarship." John F. Haught Georgetown University "For too many, the world is black and white: one's opponents are to be fought; one's allies are one's friends. Gary Keogh adds more colour to our intellectual world, by engaging theologically with the writings of Richard Dawkins, not as a foe or a friend, but as a serious conversation partner. Keogh thereby sets an example for religious reflection in a modern, pluralistic context. He provides a great opportunity to encounter theologies that appreciates an evolutionary understanding of life on Earth." Willem B. Drees Leiden University "Gary Keogh's energetic and structured approach takes the reader confidently into the conceptual world of Richard Dawkins. A trustworthy guide, he points out the scientific landmarks, locating them in the landscape of Dawkins' thought and relating them to the philosophical, scientific and theological issues that they raise. Gary Keogh is well informed, tough minded, well organized, and articulate. He is clear in language, elegant in composition and thorough in coverage." Joseph McCann All Hallows College "The dialogical approach adopted in Reading Richard Dawkins is one of the key issues which distinguish it from the many publications that have flooded the market in the wake of the popular success of the new atheism of Richard Dawkins and others. Allied to this innately respectful methodology is the highly commendable attention to detail which shapes the argumentation, and is evidenced by the truly remarkable range and quality of the citations that are to be found on every page of the book. Written with remarkable clarity and in an accessible style, it draws the non-specialist reader almost effortlessly into a genuine dialogue with the author on issues which seem to challenge theism in our increasingly secular and scientific age. The author not only directly challenges the logic of new atheism, but also the self-destructiveness of refugee fideism. For this alone, the book is to be highly recommended." Eoin Cassidy Dublin City University
