On 11 June, Fr Thomas Crean's book A Catholic replies to Professor Dawkins was launched at Blackfriars, Oxford. Fr Thomas, who is a member of the Dominican community in Cambridge, explained that he had written the book in an accessible way to help those who may have been perplexed by arguments made by Richard Dawkins in his book The God Delusion.

A Catholic Replies to Professor Dawkins is published by Family Publications and may be purchased here. Alternatively, you could ask your nearest bookseller to stock it.

Below are photos from this event:
