In the beginning : the story of the King James Bible and how it changed a nation, a language, and a culture by Alister E McGrath ( Book )
14 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 2,103 libraries worldwide
"The King James Bible is the most familiar and widely read Bible translation in the world, recognized for centuries as both a religious and literary classic. But the origins of this masterpiece are far from what one might expect, and its beginnings lie in murder, deceit, bitter political feuds, and religious conflicts so intense they threatened the unity of England. The struggle to translate the Bible into English was a passionate cause, in the name of which crusaders fought, were imprisoned, and were sometimes even executed - like William Tyndale, whose efforts to translate the New Testament into English led him to a gruesome death. Now, Alister McGrath explores the origins of this monumental work and delves into the forces that brought it into being, illuminating a particularly volatile and culturally rich period in European history."--BOOK JACKET.

The twilight of atheism : the rise and fall of disbelief in the modern world by Alister E McGrath ( Book )
16 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 1,328 libraries worldwide
Atheism is one of the most important movements in modern Western culture. For the last two hundred years, it seemed to be on the verge of eliminating religion as an outmoded and dangerous superstition. Recent years, however, have witnessed the decline of disbelief and a rise in religious devotion throughout the world. In [this volume, the author] examines what went wrong with the atheist dream and explains why religion and faith are destined to play a central role in the twenty-first century. [He] traces the history of atheism from its emergence in eighteenth-century Europe as a revolutionary worldview that offered liberation from the rigidity of traditional religion and the oppression of tyrannical monarchs, to its golden age in the first half of the twentieth century. Blending thoughtful, authoritative historical analysis with incisive portraits of such leading and influential atheists as Sigmund Freud and Richard Dawkins, [he] exposes the flaws at the heart of atheism, and argues that the renewal of faith is a natural, inevitable, and necessary response to its failures.-Dust jacket.

The Dawkins delusion : atheist fundamentalism and the denial of the divine by Alister E McGrath ( Book )
6 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,109 libraries worldwide
"Alister McGrath is ideally placed to evaluate Dawkins' ideas. Once an atheist himself, he gained a doctorate in molecular biophysics before going on to become a leading Christian theologian. He wonders how two people, who have reflected at length on substantially the same world, could possibly have come to such different conclusions about God. McGrath subjects Dawkins' critique of faith to rigorous scrutiny. This book will be warmly received by those looking for a reliable assessment of The God Delusion and the many questions it raises - including, above all, the relevance of faith and the quest for meaning."--Jacket.
