John Stackhouse of Regent (Vancouver) has posted some related musings on his blog. You might be interested:
From the comments:
I think you’re exactly right John. Dawkins expresses his astonishment that folks like Collins, Polkinghorne, Peackocke, etc can actually believe, not only in some kind of physicist God who set the whole thing in motion, but in the particular “thought-reading,” prayer-answering God of the Bible and in the details of the Christian religion, “resurrection, forgiveness of sins and all.”
But that’s exactly where he stops - at astonishment. He doesn’t bother to investigate how they might “put it together” or why they might think such a project worthwhile in the first place - two pretty important pieces of the equation to just leave out, in my opinion.
