Mainly I find his review unwilling to take seriously
the idea on which the ASA is based, namely that genuine
biblical religion, with belief in a God who exists
before and apart from the creation, can make sense of
the world of science. Crews simply *assumes* that
science couples well only with irreligion, and I reject
that assumption not only as a Christian with a knowledge
of science but also as an historian with a knowledge of
Christianity and science.
Of course, I must confess I am a Christian. However,
what actually struck me more was that his style (particularly
in part II) was akin to the nitpicker who feels some
penchant obligation to trash everything and anything
that comes their way. With a shifty style like that,
I could probably trash any great literary work as well.
By the end of it, the attitude became so predictable, that
I was reminded of the vapid religionist who sounds more
like a used car salesman than a serious apologist.
