A leading Christian leader in Scotland has been vocal is crediting atheist professor Richard Dawkins’ book “The God Delusion” for paving the way for the Church to share its message about God and drew millions of people to salvation.

“Richard Dawkins has done us a big favor,” said the Rev David Robertson, a minister from the Free Church of Scotland, ahead of the Faclan Book Festival on the Isle of Lewis later this week ,where both he and Dawkins will be speaking about spiritual literature.

“A book about God and the Bible has become a bestseller and as a result has opened up a discussion that many people thought was over,” Robertson added to the Stornoway Gazette.

“I recently did a show with Marcus Brigstocke, the comedian, in which he declared – ‘Before I read The God Delusion I was a an atheist, after I read it I was an agnostic – I don’t want to read it again in case I turn into a Christian’! ”

Dawkins argues that science and the universe exist without any divine inspiration or designer and believes that God is detrimental to human development.

Robertson is but one of many religious figures and creationists who have engaged the debate and discussion about faith and science in today’s world.
