The Dawkins delusion

Since Richard Dawkins is coming to Brisbane in march I am getting asked about responses to his views. One of the best responses to his book The God Delusion is a short book, The Dawkins Delusion?: atheist fundamentalism and the denial of the devine, by Alister McGrath and Joanna Collicutt McGrath. The Wikipedia entry gives a good summary of the book and different reviews. It ends:
The review in Publishers weekly suggested that "The McGraths expeditiously plow into the flank of Dawkins's fundamentalist atheism ... and run him from the battlefield. The book works partly because they are so much more gracious to Dawkins than Dawkins is to believers"
