Not a Chance Not a Chance

God, Science, and the Revolt against Reason

by Sproul,R.C., Mathison, Keith

Can chance truly be responsible for all that is? Despite claiming unbelief in God or any higher power that may have designed or created the world, modern scientists often write and speak of chance as some kind of being or force that can actually cause things to happen. They have excluded any designer but filled in the resultant void with faulty reasoning. In this classic book, the authors call the scientific world to employ logic and clarity in their discourse, to leave the word chance as an abstract concept to describe mathematical possibilities rather than an ontological entity that can cause change. American philosopher Dallas Willard praised the book ‘Not a Chance’ as "Sproul at his best, which is very good. He shows secularism to be what it now is: a desperate faith." This expanded edition includes a chapter dealing with the more recent attempts to defend irrational scientific statements. A new appendix reviews other literature on scientific discoveries that support belief in a Creator God. "Powerfully argued. Here science, philosophy, and theology meet."--Ravi Zacharias, author of The Real Face of Atheism "Readable, well researched, and compelling. The authors commend Christianity as the best explanation for our world of cause and effect and meaning."--Douglas Groothuis, professor of philosophy, Denver Seminary "Sproul shows the reader that a self-creating universe is a self-contradiction. Every Christian who wants to make an effective defense for his or her faith should read this book."--Steven B. Cowan, coauthor of The Love of Wisdom and coeditor of In Defense of the Bible "A needed correction for errors that have crept into modern-day science. It is a refreshing and enlightening book that tackles difficult topics and brings them down to the layman."--Dr. Robert Waltzer, professor and chair of biology, Belhaven University
