The Critical Verdict on Dawkins' 'The God Delusion'

The God Delusion has been a best seller on both sides of the Atlantic and continues to make waves - I thought readers might appreciate a list of links to critical reviews, of which there are many, including several scathing reviews by secular writers, such as philosopher Thomas Nagel and scientist H. Allen Orr. Also worth highlighting are the responses by leading Christian philosophers Richard Swinburne of Oxford and Alvin Plantinga of Notre Dame.
